Bill Kirstein

bio

Born in Washington D.C., Bill Kirstein directed his first feature at age 19. After graduating from Wesleyan University, he began directing a documentary on Da’Sean Butler, the West Virginia University basketball star who tore his ACL during the NCAA Final Four in 2010. In between shooting the documentary, Bill went to work for Beyoncé at Parkwood Entertainment and produced the highest rated HBO documentary of the past decade, Life is But a Dream.

The following year, he directed several live Beyoncé DVD shoots as well as the music videos “Rocket” and “Blue” on her recent self-titled groundbreaking album. Bill is also comfortable behind the camera, as he recently served as a cinematographer on the Terrence Malick produced 2014 Sundance film, The Better Angels.

Bill is currently working as a music video, documentary, and commercial director in New York and Los Angeles.
