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 shaped the aesthetic of his early commercials, which balance a handheld, character focussed style with cinematic visuals. He has won campaigns with agencies such as BBH, The & Partnership and AMV BBDO to direct films for well known brands such as Next, Lexus and Ovo Energy.

Combining his background in writing, directing and cinematography, Ben conceived, shot and edited a short black comedy during lockdown called Stockholm Syndrome. In a short space of time this little film has gone on to gain some amazing accolades which include winning the international Lockdown Film Festival, being showcased online by the BFI and gaining official selection status at multiple festivals worldwide.

Since lockdown has eased Ben has shot his first post-Covid commercial, a short, sharp TVC for Currys featuring the comedy actor Neil D’Souza who can be seen acting alongside Idris Elba and Bill Bailey on Sky TV’s In The Long Run. Ben is now in pre production for his next short, Be Original, which like Stockholm Syndrome is also be a black comedy and will be available to catch at screenings in 2021.
