Ben is a freelance Australian Commercials Producer and Director who has worked with some of the biggest global advertising agencies. He has produced work across a wide variety of categories but has a distinctive specialisation in tabletop / food shooting. As well as being a producer with more than fifteen years industry experience, he is also an established commercial director. He primarily directs food commercials which evolved naturally from nearly a decade working closely producing work with a range of food directors and cinematographers. This brought the journey full circle as Ben got his start directing theatre early in his career.
Originally, as theatre Director and Producer, he had extensive experience and training in working with actors. So whilst he may be comfortable throwing food in the air in visually appealing fashion, he is well versed in getting natural performances from actors.
Ultimately, Ben is interested in created visually arresting work that has a cinematic style and approach regardless of the subject matter.
Ben is a professional, hard working, trustworthy production partner who will go above and beyond to deliver a production that everyone is happy with and can be proud of. He loves to collaborate with clients and his creative team.
He is tertiary educated in film and theatre as well as holding a post graduate in Media. In his spare time, he is a hobbyist photographer with an interest in landscapes, portraits and macro photography.
