Will Bentley

Will was born in London and grew up in Rio de Janeiro and the English countryside. His early years were often spent shooting homemade films with his brother, where his love of filmmaking and writing scripts began. Will earned an M.A in Ancient History from the University of Edinburgh, then worked in publishing in London, before the road eventually led to Berlin, where Will rekindled his passion for cinema and telling stories. 

Will wrote for “Deutschland 86” (Sundance and Amazon Prime), the second season of the Emmy award-winning international TV drama series “Deutschland 83”. He was part of the writing team for the fantasy TV series “Heirs of the Night” (ZDF). As well as developing his own original ideas, Will enjoys working as an episode writer and collaborating on film and TV projects.

Alongside his work for television, Will has published short fiction and poetry. His writing has appeared in The Reader Berlin, Exberliner Magazine, Agenda Magazine, Ambit Poetry Journal, and Poetry Salzburg Review. In 2019, Will founded the photography site Blazing Haystack. Will loves the fun of working in old, impractical formats like Super 8.
