William (Billy) Puschel

Vienna, Virginia, United States

My name is Billy Puschel, and I am currently studying to pursue a career in movie-making. I grew up with my parents and sister in the town of Vienna, in nothern Virginia just outside of Washington, D.C. I had a creative mind from an early age, as my absolute favorite activity was playing with Legos. An interest in film production began to emerge when I made several animated shorts using Legos and a rudimentary video editing software.

It was when I took Drama Class in Middle school that I discovered a passion for acting. I spent the next several years participating in professional and community stage productions, and developed an appreciation for Broadway musicals. During this time, my interest began to shift from theatre to film. In high school, I took two specialized training classes for the performing arts, one for acting on stage, and one for film and television production. It was in the latter class that my growing passion for film really solidified, as I learned how to use professional video cameras, as well as how to use Avid video software.

I currently attend Arcadia University in Glenside, Pennsylvania. I was originally pursuing a BA in Theatre Arts, but have since changed my declared major to Video Communications, guided by my growing desire to seek a career in film and media production. I have taken many classes in video production, including a cut-out/digital animation practicum. I have learned how to use Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, After Effects, and Photoshop.
