Engineer by day, filmmaker by night
Ben Feldman currently works at The Aerospace Corporation in Los Angeles while pursuing filmmaking on the side. A Chicago native and University of Virginia grad, Ben has been writing and directing films his whole life, including selections to the Chicago International Film Festival, the Best Directing winner at the North Shore Film Festival, and the Best Horror winner at the Virginia Emerging Filmmakers Festival that went on to be distributed by DUST Studios. In college, he founded Virginia Filmmakers, an organization dedicated to creating a stronger film community on a campus with no film department. Ben also worked for the university hospital as creative director of medical education 360-videos, which he used as the foundation for his thesis, "Directing for Cinematic Virtual Reality: The Viewer as the Camera". Despite his engineering background, Ben remains committed to learning the craft of film through experience, and continues to get on set every opportunity he can. He recently completed his first feature-length documentary, and has gathered over 100 hours and counting of intimate day-in-the-life footage with a Venice homeless community for another doc coming soon.
