About Ben

I'm a short film director & writer, from Malvern, Worcestershire (West Midlands, UK) I'm approaching my graduation in a BA in Film Production at The University of Portsmouth, with many projects ready to start. I've directed, written, edited, produced, shot and acted in many short films including my latest short film The Renegades (currently in Post-Production), which is my most ambitious project yet. I've been making films for around 5 years now, however, my love of films and story-telling reaches back 13 years, when I was 8 years old playing with my Spider-Man action figures, formulating the weirdest and outlandish stories I could think of. I've had recent experience as a Runner as you can see from my work below, having worked with the likes of the BFI, ENVY, Rural Media and Evolutions.
