William Bessai-Saul is a local artist and filmmaker who’s been playing Minecraft for almost half his life. He has made IRL films for years, but his interests with the game stem from the natural stories which evolve from its improvisational sandbox role-play environment. Combining this with a love for drama, the machinima has emerged as a new passion.
