Ben likes making films and telling stories. From an early age, it was clear a good, well-crafted story was important to him. Back then they sometimes called it lying, but nowadays it's considered all good fun and he is happy to swap his stories and this films for money, which makes his wife and children happy as they like to buy things.
Ben has won awards for his films, which is always lovely. The most recent is in fact for this very film 'La Merde'. A true story as it happens but we've changed it a bit to protect Emma's dignity!
Ben has directed a number of commercials for companies like Matalan, Kinder Surprise, Wisdom Toothpaste and made films for Honda, McDonalds and Samsung.

He has clocked up a long list of credits over 15 years across television, advertising and music videos working extensively as Director, Producer, Cameraman, Sound Recordist and Editor for some of the UK’s leading brands and broadcasters, from his first runner’s job at Pinewood Studios, through to Consulting Producer and Cinematographer on I Am Because We Are (a film by Madonna), which was honoured at Tribeca and Cannes Film Festivals.

And let’s not forget that first and deepest love; one that’s led him on many a musical adventure, from BBC classical series to documentary features such as Amazing Journey: The Story of The Who.

I emerged from music into film through a jumble of tape loops, odd synths and unusual sound sources. Coupled with a love of photography, cooking and the great outdoors gives me an often ‘off the wall’ approach to sound and life in general!
