William Eubank Career:
William Eubank began accepted jobs as a director or cinematographer at age 18. A number of Eubank’s early works featured the use of in-camera speed ‘ramping’. As a cinematographer and camera operator, Eubank was hired by the UFC to film fights in this style. William never worked on commercials but did release reels and camera tests. William was accepted into UCLA where he took cosmology classes that he would later cite as an influence on his films’ ideas. After attending UCLA for two years, he had not made it into the film program, and, impatient, he dropped out and went to work at Panavision Woodland Hills as a camera repair technician and digital imaging technician.
William Eubank would become a seasoned Panavision employee, staying at the company for the next eight years. William attended the Sundance Film Festival five times representing Panavision, dreaming of attending as a director. He would meet with his Navy cinematographer grandfather, who lived in Salt Lake City, who insisted Eubank would someday attend with a film.
While at Sundance and elsewhere, it was William’s job to promote and provide support for the Panavised CineAlta F900, which had singularly moved Hollywood into the digital cinema era with its use in the production of George Lucas’s 2002 film Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, the third, and first major, a feature film to be released that was shot entirely on a 24p digital camera.
Using his position at Panavision, William convinced the Australian cinema product manufacturer Blackmagic Design to send him an early edition of an SDI capture card. Using this early card and the brand-new SATA drives that had just appeared on the market, William stacked 14 hard drives on top of each other and drilled a hole into a Power Mac G4 in order to create an NLE system on a personal computer that could directly capture the F900’s Full HD 1080p. When the working result was seen at Panavision, co-workers agreed a shift was about to occur in the industry.

William directed a number of music videos for the band, including the video for the single “Surrender”. William also wrote and directed the feature film Love, commissioned and produced by Angels & Airwaves. The film was inspired by Terrence Malick’s The Thin Red Line and asks according to William “What are we, as human beings, going to leave behind when we cease to exist one day…?” The emotions in the film are titled after, ‘love’, was described by Eubank as “The ability to feel and find complete communication without words or touch…the ability to find an understanding on nothing but a sense”.
William spent four years working on the film, serving as the film’s production designer and constructing both the International Space Station and Civil War-battleground sets for the film in his parents’ backyard himself over the course of nine months. William based his building of the ISS set on NASA photography and skateboard ramp designs and his staging of the battle scenes on Civil War paintings.
While Love was still being edited, William Eubank Started writing a second screenplay, The Signal. He collaborated on the script with fellow screenwriters David Frigerio and his brother, Carlyle Eubank. In an interview, William Eubank Stated his first thoughts for the project: “I’m a big fan of The Twilight Zone, of what Rod Serling used to do as a storyteller, and I always wanted to do one of those – a story with intangibility and strangeness that makes you say, “What the heck is going on?’ I’d been thinking about the concept of an individual thrust into a specific and extreme situation, the true nature of which this person would have to uncover”.
Before production could start, William worked as a second unit director on the 2013 Regency film Broken City. Soon after, The Signal found producers: Brian Kavanaugh-Jones of Insidious and Tyler Davidson taking Shelter, and production could begin.
