About Me

- Write – Shoot – Direct –

Ben Scott is an experienced Writer, Director, DoP and Editor.

Having performed just about every production and post-production role over the last 15 years across broadcast television, feature and short films, corporate and commercial video, music promos and production work for NGOs Ben can now mostly be found walking the land like Cain from Kung Fu, righting wrongs and occasionally timelapsing stuff. He also likes taking photographs.

If you give him money, adventure or the holy grail of moneventure, he will give you lovely stuff in video/stills/written form.

If you would like to talk to me about commercial work and/or production equipment hire please get in touch via the contact page, and if you have some exciting sounding non-commercial project you’d like to talk to me about, please feel free to get in touch too. I’m all for having adventures.
