BEN DAVIS | FILMMAKER
Ben Davis is a filmmaker originally from Dallas, Texas. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Baylor University in 2011 (sic em) and works as a commercial director and screenwriter in LA and Texas. In 2014 his feature script CHASING SHADOWS placed in the top 15% of the Academy of Motion Picture's Nicholl Fellowship and in 2016 his sci-fi pilot WATCH THE SKIES became the top rated teleplay on the BlackList. Commercially Ben has directed spots for Netflix, Fuller House, Play Station 4, Metro by T Mobile, BP, Sinclair Oil, and more.
Ben's all-American sensibilities, Southern upbringing, and liberal arts education offer a distinctly sentimental perspective on faith, family, and the modern American dream. His stories tend to show that, with faith and perseverance, even the most broken souls can accomplish beautiful things.
Ben is managed by Adam Rejwan at REJ Entertainment. Commercially he is on the roster of Southern Sky Films. However, he also free-lances out to other agencies//production companies on a project basis as a director and copywriter.
FROM BEN HIMSELF:
To please all the folks obsessed with personality assessments (you're in good company): I'm a true-blue Enneagram 4 and ENFP for you Myer's Briggs nerds. I also have an undying love for the following: Deathcab, Spielberg and Scorsese movies, the Dallas Cowboys, New York Yankees, (buffalo chicken) pizza, Star Wars, John Williams, nostalgia, disposable cameras, Donald Miller/Peter Rollins books, and podcasts. All the podcasts.
I work with a lot of talented people who inspire me, but I should absolutely mention a few folks specifically: Tyler Hiott who has been my best pal since high school, we write together from time-to-time, he designs a lot of my artwork, and also edits a good hunk of my directorial work. Vinnie Oppido and Chris Billings whose music inspires me whether it's in my work or someone else's. Adam Hagenbuch who has acted in my stuff since we he was a pre-teen and has created some great work with me behind the camera as a writer and director. And last, but not least Greg Cotten and Aaron Youngblood whose technical gifts behind the camera have made me look so damn good time and time again. Also, Jacob Robinson for reading my words and inspiring me with his and Gregory Bordelon for keeping me sane, laughing, and enjoying the ride.
