Billy Hamill: S01 Gaffer Born in New Jersey, Billy grew up loving movies and was always awed by the power they held over the imagination.

Since then, he’s worked on various reality television productions including Project Runway: All Stars and The X Factor as a production assistant. He currently works as a video editor for Local Wisdom, Inc. in New Jersey and uses his free time to pursue his passion for lighting for film and television.
