The closest medium to MTV was the weekly antics of the Monkees foursome. Now, 20 years later, Williams and his wife Leslie Libman live in Los Angeles and direct music videos that appear on MTV. They have worked with such artists as Prince, Little Richard. Rod Stewart, Paul Simon and Boy George. The route Williams traveled from York to Los Angeles and tiis present career was far from a direct one. In the fall of 1967 he left York ;o study anthropology at George Washington University. While there, he "took some art courses and enjoyed them." so he moved to California, where he studied art at the University of Southern California. By way of explaining such a drastic switch in studies and locales, Williams said, "It was the late '60s ... it was the trend at the time. Everyone was moving to California at the time." After earning his bachelor of fine arts degree at USC, Williams continued his art studies at the San Francisco Art Institute, before returning to USC to earn a master of fine arts in 1974. Although his degree was in painting, he was attracted to photography, which led to his association with the Light Gallery in New York in 1975. A series of international exhibitions of his photography followed, as Williams began to work commercially for such magazines as Rolling Stone and N 7 ewsweek, as well as with a variety of ad campaigns and record companies. It was an assignment to do a series of photo sessions with Prince for the album "Purple Rain" in 1984 that first led Wil- liams to the world of music videos. When the photo sessions were finished, Prince asked Williams to direct the video for "When Doves Cry." Williams found working in music video "new and exciting" and "a lot of fun." More than just a career change awaited Williams, however. In 1985, he married Libman, whom he had known since 1970, when he was at USC and she was in high school. Libman had taken an equally indirect route careerwise, but she also is a director of music videos. Her education at the Los Angeles City College Film Studies Program was followed by her serving as assistant to the director on the 1975 cult film "Massacre at Central High." After writing free-lance for the record and film industries, she became involved with music videos when she and producer Francie Moore formed Libman- Moore Productions in 1983. SAT. & SUN.
