Ben Saunders_Portrait

Ben’s been directing TVC’s for 8.25 years & in that time has worked with cars, banks, cameras, undies, beer & ice cream.  Starting out as a photographer, he made the switch to the moving image through his critically acclaimed work directing music videos for the likes of Eskimo Joe, Paul Kelly & Birds of Tokyo.

With an obvious cinematic sensibility & a passion for strong visual imagery, his in camera approach often sees him take on the challenge of merging the worlds of live action and VFX.   With a love of the casting process & its opportunity to meet some of the strange people that live in our world, Ben’s work continues to evolve around his passion for capturing a moment.

He still enjoys directing music videos and has won both an ARIA  & a Golden Guitar for best music video, a rare double & as Ben says “a bit like winning the Brownlow & the Magarey Medals”.
