Bill O'Neil - director

My name is Bill O'Neil. I'm a commercial filmmaker based in Chicago. This website is a shameless promotion of my work.


While compiling assets for this site, I realized how much fun I've had  over the past 38 years working in production. A crew gathers for a day. We set up lights and record actors who play make-believe. I yell cut, and then we shoot it 17 more times. Sometimes magic occurs. Sometimes not. But we're always selling something.


You'll find samples of my commercials, short films, music, After Effects tutorials and behind-the-scenes photos & stories.


Feel free to contact me if you need a spot, or if you have any questions about my work. Or you can ask me about my experience on The Price is Right and Love Connection.
