    Edward wills is a highly skilled sculptor and an outstanding artist who has art peices all over the world!!.. so to work with him was a great honor. I met edward on the set of DeadTime where he was head and chief designer of sfx, we worked closely together and some of the work he produced was very complex in the time we had casting, building prosthetics, mixing and making gallons of the best bood and gore i've seen to manic onset repairs!!!....but all his skills proved to be very realistic and spooked everyone out which is an insight of how fantastic edward 's work is . He is a warm, extremley funny charming old fashioned gentlemen the best preson to have on night shoots!!.. an extremley hard worker and professional at all times,a lover of the arts and anything creative or challenging Edward was a pleasure to work with and I have learnt a lot from him and will be a long life friend, any one who is lucky enough to work with edward I know will totally agree !!
