Ben Cowper

I have always loved working with video, and began producing professional work in 2007. Since then I have worked on hundreds of projects for a wide variety of individuals, artists, and commercial clients including: Yale University, PBS American Masters, and Cambridge University Press.

At the moment I am most interested in collaborative narrative and documentary film, audio storytelling, interactive or experimental installation, and commercial work. If you would like to work together you can send me an email at [email protected]
