About me

Ben has always used the camera on his shoulder to get stuck in and tell stories across the globe. He has lived amongst tribes in the Amazon Rainforest, followed Japanese musicians perform in Iceland and shot with world class beatboxers in Taiwan. His experience working as a self-shooting documentary director has shaped the aesthetic of his commercials, which balance a handheld, character focussed style with cinematic visuals. Regardless of being freelance without representation he has won campaigns with agencies such as BBH and The & Partnership to direct films for well known brands such as Next, Lexus and Ovo Energy. Combining his background in writing, directing, cinematography and love for eccentric characters, Ben conceived, shot and edited a short black comedy during lockdown. The film is currently being showcased by the BFI as a part of their 'SHORT IT OUT' initiative and is being entered into festivals worldwide.
