Ben's next project for Chevrolet was nominated for a D&AD Next director award. Since then Ben has shot commercials all over the world with agencies including McCann, M&C Saatchi, Leo Burnett, AMV and Google Creative. One of his most recent projects for The Cornerstone Partnership has been hailed as a global first for social innovation and premiered at London's city Hall with praise from top industry professionals. Ben created a hard hitting film in both VR and traditional 2D, showing great versatility in his craft.
