Benjamin has directed commercials for some of the world’s biggest global agencies. His visually arresting work and cinematic style can be seen in campaigns for McDonald’s, Heinz, Arnott’s, Primo, Proctor & Gamble, Nestle, Oporto’s, Subway, Taco Bell, Hungry Jacks, Red Rooster,  The Coffee Club, amongst many others.

Benjamin is a highly experienced tabletop director who is equally well versed in getting natural and genuine performances from actors.

His approach is visual storytelling in a dynamic manner using in-camera techniques rather than visual effects. He strives to present the subjects honestly and realistically even if it’s heightened realism in order to maximise appetite appeal.

He has spent more than a decade working closely with Australia’s most experienced directors and cinematographers to create a balance between beautiful tabletop imagery and breathtaking performance.
