For two decades, Bill edited dozens of trailers for major studio features, working for top-rank trailer companies in Hollywood and for the marketing department at Paramount Pictures.

In 2004, Bill stepped away from commercial entertainment to open his own editing service to devote more time to documentaries and humanitarian projects. He has established himself as the go-to trailer expert among documentary and independent film producers. He is often asked to speak and critique trailers in seminars hosted by Carole Dean and has written a chapter on trailer production for the new edition of her book, The Art of Film Funding. His Trailer Clinics help give filmmakers the tips and tools to improve their fundraising trailers. He has also written articles on the subject for documentary blogs and has been quoted in the N.Y. Times.
