This Is Why I Can't Wear White
A video that I directed and edited for the song "(This is Why) I Can't Wear White" by Flock of
(Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak).
The video is a "supercut" of underwater scenes from various movies
and television shows. I combed through over 200 hundred movies and in the end 77 different movies
were used to create the video.
I also created this screenshot poster which is available for sale in my online store
A video that I directed and edited for Dan Deacon's
song "Crash Jam" off of his album, America. Made entirely out of footage from the P90X workout system.
"I'm a fan Ben. Nice job. Saw my work in a whole new light." -P90X Director, Mason Bendewald
True Thrush is a music video that I co-directed and co-produced with Dan Deacon
for his song
"True Thrush" off of his 2013 album, America.
The video is based on the game of Telephone.
We began by shooting a scene in a cluttered room of our own design. We then showed the next
team of two people the video we made, they were only allowed to watch the video twice.
From memory they had to recreate everything in the room as well as the actions that took place.
The third team was shown the second team's video and so on and so forth.
