The Team

House on Rodeo Gulch, the movieWilliam Scherer- Producer, Writer, Director, Editor

Having lived all over the world as a Navy brat, Bill grew up mostly in the Washington DC area and went to college at the Virginia Military Institute. Upon graduation he received an Officer’s commission in the Army where he spent three years with the 82d Airborne Division as an Airborne/Ranger. Having done theater in high school, his nights were spent at the Fort Bragg playhouse where he had many leads.

Upon leaving the Army, Bill travelled to Hollywood where he got involved in TV and Movie industry. He has acted in movies and theatre with Academy Award winner George C. Scott, Dorothy Lamour, Gregory Peck, Charlton Heston, Carol Burnett, Helen Hunt among others but it was behind the camera that most fascinated him the most. There he was able to learn his photographic craft from some of Hollywood’s most celebrated directors and cinematographers like Academy Award winner, Robert Wise. The first script he wrote, a TV comedy pilot, got him signed with one of the top agencies in Los Angeles and was bought by Universal Studios which got him into the WGAW. He is also a member of SAG and AEA.

Bill eventually relocated north to Central California where he raised a family, and became involved in numerous business and media projects. Having learned to fly in the Army, he acquired an airplane and quickly became one of the leading Fine Art Aerial photographers in the country (See: www.WilliamSchererPhotography.com). As Bill explains. “There’s something fulfilling about shooting Fine Art Photography while flying 100 mph, 300 feet off the ground.” Along the way in his spare time, he set three World Land Speed records on his Kawasaki ZX-14 motorcycle at the famous Bonneville Salt Flats where he went 200 mph.

A movie maker at heart, Bill continued writing and developing story-lines for full length features. After completing the script House on Rodeo Gulch, a psychological thriller, loosely based on personal experience involving a rental tenant-from-hell experience, Bill decided it was time to produce and direct. His vision was to create a compelling independent movie with the production values of multi-million dollar Hollywood production.

Bill is currently engaged in the promotion and marketing of House on Rodeo Gulch. Bill expects a release in the summer of 2017. Look for announcements on this site or on “https://www.facebook.com/HouseOnRodeoGulch“.

His next two projects, which he wrote, are “Cantina Bay“, an exciting thriller/love story based on a US Senator accidentally shooting a woman while on a camping trip in Baja, Mexico and “Fore” an outrageous, sophisticated comedy about Bill’s favorite sport- golf which was inspired by the hit movie Caddyshack.

We are fortunate to have Chanel Ryan starring as the “tormented mother”. A veteran in the motion picture industry, she can be seen in over fifteen motion pictures and television shows.
