Wesley F Williams II


Action movie director Wes Williams II was born on Scott's Air Force base in St. Clair County, Illinois in 1986. At five years old, his mother decided to move to Boston,MA where family was waiting. With 3 boys she had to work 3 jobs to keep them feed and clothed. While away at work, she propped Wes and his brothers in front of a T.V that acted as a babysitter. This is where Wes got his love for film and music. For hours after school he would sit and watch movies and rap music videos of the mid to late 90's.Turn the clock forward 10 years his love and talent as a record producer landed him in Miami in front of an unknown artist at the time calling himself Rick Ross. Unfortunately, the record deal fell through and he found himself back on a plane to Boston. Devastated he turned his eye to film. He started acting and landed his first gig as a cop in Arthur Luhn's "Conned". After months going by and not one role for the unseasoned actor he decided to take matters into his own hands and get behind the lens. His first project was a T.V mini-series titled "Boston". It lasted 6 episodes and aired on Comcast, DirecTV and RCN. He then moved on to shooting films with his first short "The Target" starring brother of Mark Wahlberg, Arthur Wahlberg. With tens of thousands of views online he wanted to up the game and shot "Rosie's Diner" on the RED with a crew of 10. The premiere for "Rosie's Diner" was a huge success creating a frenzy of media buzz in the northeast. After, he upped the ante again stepping up to shooting his first feature "District C-11" set to premiere April 21st 2016 at AMC lowes theater in Boston. Next for Wes is a gritty short film with the working title "Nothing to lose" followed by his next feature currently in development titled "The Last Bullet". This ambitious movie director is determined, educated and armed with a platoon of loyal supporters to be apart what will one day be history.
