BenJamin Batten | Video Editor & Storyteller

I'm a filmmaker and editor who loves the magic of motion pictures and its power to transport the viewer in time and space.

For me, editing is sculpting with motion pictures. Carving away, building on, and rearranging pieces to reveal the true beauty within reels of footage and story lines. I enjoy taking the time to find that frame, that line, that moment that illuminates the truth of a story. Ultimately, encouraging the viewer to think, learn, and explore.

With that power, a filmmaker has a great responsibility because like any tool video can be used for good or evil. I choose good.

Have a story to tell? Let's talk.

Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.
