Executive Producer, Sheila Willard
The moving image possesses the power to change our perspectives. As a Boston-based Executive, Creative Producer, and Founder of a film production organization, I create cross-disciplinary work that brings to life my passion for illuminating the voices of my community. While my award-winning work has included projects that advocated for civil rights, supported relief efforts, and shared messages of hope, I am excited to share projects that ignite change for the people, places, and struggles that are closest to my heart.
My fascination with the media industry was sparked when I received my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, Anthropology, and Film. I went on to hone my skills, obtaining a Master of Education with a focus in Educational Communications from Boston University. After a 28-year career with Comcast Corporation, working in fields spanning from Local Media Development to Government Affairs, I launched my own community-driven production company in 2020, SRW Films. Through projects that share the history and journeys of the people around me, I am deeply committed to using my role as Founder and Executive Producer, to share the stories, promote well-being, and strengthen the bonds within my community.
