Despite an early obsession with Superman, Ben started dedicating himself seriously to films when he fell in love with the work of his filmmaking heroes like Ozu, Bergman and  Allen. That's not to say, he doesn't love Zoolander and Harry Potter too.

He has gone on to write and direct a number of short films, which have been exhibited at festivals, including Rocky and Joel, the Superman.

He loves making words come to life and working with a team to get the best out of the material.

The winner of the 2016 BAFTA Rocliffe children's media award, Ben has written a number of shorts, a four-part television drama series and has a drawer full of feature film scripts.

Ben has benefited from training courses at the National Film and Television School and the Script Factory.
