Ben Strebel - who has just been signed by Biscuit Filmworks – is a director who always brings something special to his work. Filled with curiosity, he continually pushes at creative limits in a fashion which inevitably benefits his projects.
In their press release, Biscuit Filmworks describe him as having "a style that blends cinematic realism with a surreal twist" and say that "he commands a vivid filmic canvas with which to tell human stories – changing and diversifying the viewer’s perception of the world with a strong focus on storytelling, casting, technical prowess and cinematography to bring his subjects to life." We can't argue with that.
Rupert Reynolds-MacLean, Managing Director at Biscuit UK, says: "I’m incredibly excited abut working with Ben. We’ve already got a great creative flow going and the time is right for him to make a huge global impact on commercials and music videos. Ben’s desire to push the boundaries and take the audience on a journey that surprises them and alters the way we look at things is what sets him apart as a film maker."
In addition to his TVC work, Strebel has created extraordinary promos including this strikingly disturbing piece for The Hour. It's a film which illustrates Strebel's willingness to push creativity as hard as possible and take big risks if he feels it will enhance the outcome.
