BILL SHEEHY

CINEMATOGRAPHER

  • BIO

Bill Sheehy grew up 5 blocks from MGM studios (now Sony Studios) in Culver City where he would sneak into the back lot to see how movies were made.  Photography then became a passion that evolved into a career in film. Bill began his formal studies at LMU with a BFA in fine and communication arts while interning with Fine Art photographer John Divola.


After graduation Bill started working under cinematographers Gene Polito ASC and Frank Stanley ASC. Working as a grip, electrician, camera assistant, gaffer, and operator he worked on a variety of projects from Roger Corman features to academy award winning documentaries.


Bill joined the Cinematography guild in 1996 and has been a mainstream DP with credits such as "MAD TV", "That 70's Show", and the highly acclaimed and stylized "Curb Your Enthusiasm" on HBO.

"It's all about the story. As visual storytellers we help create a style, each project's cinematic grammar, the light, the revealing angles, the mood. This is what ties you into the story and performance."
