Hi, I'm Benj, and I create informative, relevant, and positive video.

 

I'm a director, producer, and cinematographer based in New Zealand. I've got an eye for detail and an arsenal of storytelling techniques which allow me to connect directly with audiences. I'm capable of managing a crew and working solo to produce, shoot and edit projects on my own.

I bring curiosity and a depth of understanding to everything I make.
