I’m Ben, I go to North Bristol post 16 studying photography, art and English. I’m interested in documentary film making, documentary photography and photojournalism. I’m interested in cinematography and how a video/image looks. In the academy, I hope to become confident with post production, which I have some expedience of when spending a week being a runner and shadowing editors etc at Films@59. I find the work of up and coming all rounder Frank Lebon inspiring in particular Reely and Truly , a short doc which explores photography and its role as a manipulator of truth.

I would like to Perdue career in the creative industry and I hope that the BFI academy will help me to decide what that could be.
