Inspitories is my made up word for inspirational stories on young people I find interesting. They are usually interviews of other Entrepreneurs like myself whom I have had the pleasure of meeting, stumbled upon online or dug up that motivate me. Enjoy and get inspired!

In a time where every youth wants to be, or rather, is struggling to be in the music entertainment industry, one has to wonder: is there talent anymore?
These days, it either about making beats, singing or raping! It is the same thing everywhere you turn! The same sounds and/or wordplay! Save for the few talented ones, this “music-making” syndrome just makes one norm!

That’s why it is always nice to see a youth with a fresh talent/gift who is increasing in creativity by the day. Initially, I thought he just liked taking pictures, mostly in black & white. They were pretty good. His photos were actually pretty nice and bold. Then, there were the “Got Milk?” imitations, which looked pretty authentic, only I knew he wasn’t a model. And of course, the initial photos in the “Focus & Blur” Series on his facebook page…nothing short of genius!

His additional passion for making video clips recently caught my attention. There’s always something new, an added touch, and he seems to be constantly evolving. The first I noticed was his rather disturbing imitation of the Joker as played by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight. It was actually pretty interesting and well done. Then I recently watched a couple of his new clips, and now, I like to think of him as the next Hype Williams. After seeing one of his latest works, which is a variation of Kanye West’s “Street Lights”- “Street Lights on BXD”, one would be forced to agree with me. One thing I like the most is, not only are they creative, but very entertaining!

The world is his board; and the camera, his palette & brush. Very few people make photography or even videography an art these days. Allow me to introduce…

Birth Name

Not sure if it’s a talent, but I just try to display what goes on in my head through video.

Art/Business Name
William Turner l Willyverse

Business Profile
Willyverse is a provider of quality images and film. It is the parent company of YV (photography) and WYVE (videography).

I started this
I can’t say exactly, but probably after high school.

I’m driven by
I keep doing it because I enjoy it. Of course I do hope to get major recognition someday, but that isn’t really a driving force for me.
My major inspiration is Good Music & Talent. People like Michael Jackson, Guy Ritchie and Kanye West (specifically 808’s & Heartbreak) inspire me.
I just appreciate major talent in general, and I try to apply the same expression through any video I do.

Past Works/Portfolio
Well, recently concluded one called Lhuna. Others are mostly just fun stuff I put together, but some of the best so far are: Joker (2008), Say You Will (2009), Best I Ever Had (2009), I Need (2009), Street Lights on BXD (2009), Lhuna (2009) and Stand Up For the Champions (2010). Tumblr and Vimeo are good ways to find out more about what I’ve been up to.
