Ben was extremely willing to work, offer ideas and engage with us as a company. He is innovative and shows dedication to the projects. He went above and beyond for the projects and would be an asset to any production company. We enjoy his company and he has great writing and organisational skills.

Ben worked with us on two separate film shoots: Endeavour IV and Victoria, both for ITV. Ben is very personable, hard working and works well within a team. He treated crew and cast with respect and understood on set behaviour. We are looking to use Ben again in the future for other productions.

Ben is a pleasure to work with. I have found him to be sensitive to the needs of his students and equally with staff. He combined high academic achievement with a sense of fun and a clear sense of self. I am hoping to work with Ben in a professional capacity in the future in content production and have no hesitation in recommending him.
