I align creative vision with funding to recruit the best team for the project. Depending on project scope, I’ve served as Executive Producer, Line Producer, or Field Producer under my Bay Area Pictures banner and thrive on producing compelling audio and video stories.
Directing is the unique marriage of technical knowledge, performance sensitivity, and superb storytelling. I live at this intersection daily and consistently strive to tell the most impactful story possible, whether unscripted corporate testimonials or scripted independent films.
Short fiction. Corporate video scripts. Personal essays. Screenplays. Narration. Longform fiction. I write the stories that I’d like to read, see, or hear. And I take my creative writing and screenwriting principles and apply them to commissioned, corporate stories wherever possible.
“Ben is a collaborator, writer, idea generator and most of all one of the most amazing producers I have had the pleasure of working with. He understands clients needs, clearly articulates his vision and ultimately every project I have worked on with him has such a professional touch that clients are blown away at the finished product.”
