Billy Senecal brings a lifelong passion for film with him through every aspect of every production. Sometimes a little compulsive on pushing the medium further he has an acute eye for composition and style. Billy successfully created a video production aspect to an already existing audio/video company, which added a 25% increase of revenue in just the first year. Wanting to expand and focus on the quality and creative aspects of the film and video production industry, he founded Gravity Lab Studio in the Fall of 2010. Since, he has been focused on building and cultivating a business that is quickly becoming one of the most creative and cutting edge production houses in New England.
