Ben Hodder - British filmmaker based in Devon / London. Available for work internationally.
My passion for film grew from a early interest in foreign cinema (where it drew my attention to art form of cinematography) with my childhood love for creating imagery and storytelling. Image making is fundamentally fascinating to me and is paramount to serving the a film's story. It becomes the key responsibility for myself as a cameraman to work by.
I'm inspired by film's ability to combine storytelling, with visual art as it serves both uniquely. Always aware of how each image (shot) will make the audience feel. Combined this holds a special quality, wrapped up in performance, some luck and always a little magic.
Interested more in individual artists, definite styles, aesthetics and the importance of motion than anything else. Combining experience on set, with the lifelong passion for making images, is an exciting combination! BH
