Ben’s always been a storyteller and a learner, and telling stories about things he’s learned about is his favorite part of post production. While becoming a temporary expert in an obscure subject to produce a short video may not be everyone’s idea of a good time, for Ben, the opportunity to dive into a new field is half the fun. It also ups his trivia game.
For him, a mess of raw camera footage is like a box of jigsaw pieces; finding the narrative and building the story is an extremely fulfilling puzzle to solve. (Unlike doing jigsaw puzzles, however, Ben actually enjoys post production.)
When Ben emerges from his editing cave, you might find him brewing beer, rock climbing, hiking with his puggle, or teaching Premiere and After Effects classes around Seattle.
