While Ben was a student at Film School in Brussels, he started to work as an assistant director on commercials and films. Working his way up the ranks, from assistant director to assistant producer, he became an international producer for several companies in Belgium, France and UK at the tender age of 25.
In those five years before he hits 30, Ben produced scores of commercials, making spots for Belgian, French and UK agencies with directors such as Tony Kaye, Zhang Yimou, Raf Wathion, Ric Cantor, Robert Nylund, John Mathieson, Jaco Vandormael, Joe Vanhoutteghem and many more. With this experience under his belt, he then went back to his first love and started directing commercials and music videos.
Ben uses all his producer skills together with his sensitive vision to always seek a strong emotional, poetic, realistic and cinematographic approach to filmmaking. He has worked for clients such as Belfius, Vodafone, Algerie Telecom, Mastercard, Samsung, Visa, Sberbank, Amnesty International, Kronenbourg, Mobilis and Credit Agricole.
Ben always loved to take advantage of shooting abroad in his creative and human approach. He shot films in Russia, Cuba, Ukraine, Romania, Belgium, Algeria, Texas, NYC, Tunisia, France, China, South Africa, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Kenya, Slovenia,…
In 2014, Ben produced and directed a documentary feature film that he shot in Cuba, EL SACRIFICIO DE LOS PAJAROS.
Ben is currently working on his first narrative feature film, LE TEMPS ARRANGERA BIEN LES CHOSES.
