Weems Killed at WTC

William Weems, a freelance commercial producer, was among those killed in last week’s terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.

Weems, 46, of Marblehead, Mass., was one of 65 passengers and crew members aboard United Airlines Flight 175, which left Logan International Airport in Boston, headed for Los Angeles. The airplane crashed into the center’s south tower.

Weems was to oversee a commercial shoot for the national Energy Star program as a freelance line producer for Picture Park, a Boston production company.

“When we couldn’t get Bill on a project, it was always a big dis appointment,” said Bill Drake, a creative director at Mullen. “This mild-mannered, sweet-hearted, gentle man always managed to introduce a special style of decorum and order into the ever-present chaos of televi sion production. Bill will be for ever missed and remembered by us all.”

Working for Picture Park, Weems also produced two previous Energy Star TV spots for Haggman Advertising.

“Producers can be difficult to work with, but [Bill Weems] was always professional and a team player,” said Emily Hagg man, evp and director of account services at Haggman.

Weems’ other recent projects included ads for Arnold clients American Legacy Foundation, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Tobacco Control Program, Ocean Spray and Volkswagen of America. He also worked on BJ’s Whole sale Club ads for Hagg man and a Tyco commercial for Bozell Kamstra.

Weems was a producer at September Productions in Bos ton, which moved to New York last year.

He is survived by his wife, Lisa, and their 7-year-old daughter, Zoe.
