After graduating from Sheffield Hallam University with a degree in film studies/film production, Benjamin moved to London to begin a career in production.
He established himself in the freelance world, working on productions such as The Inbetweeners, Dead Set, and Desperate Romantics. He was soon co-ordinating on comedy pilots (Lizzie and Sarah and HBO’s Documental) and drama series (Silent Witness, The Fades, The Mystery of Edwin Drood and The Hollow Crown: Henry V). He worked on the two short films directed by Danny Boyle that formed part of the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 Olympics, then met Big Talk on their first drama The Town.
Moving in-house, Benjamin now works under the Head of Production, helping manage Big Talk’s extensive and ever-growing television slate from a production point of view – from commission through to delivery.
