“Very impressed by his enthusiasm, commitment and work ethic. Ben clearly has a passion for film making that is matched by his attitude and set etiquette. He combines a hunger to learn and willingness to ‘muck in’.”

Tom Wade – Director of Photography – Shadows | Camera Department – Star Wars, Spectre, War Horse

 

 

Ben was my one constant member of the camera team throughout principle photography on Looted. Because of which, Ben had to adapt to multiple focus pullers characters and styles of working. I was very impressed with his resolve and dedication throughout the entire shoot. He went above and beyond everyday, with the added pressure of not knowing who his next superior would be and wrapped with a strong sense of his duties, and was an integral part of the camera team for me.
