Director Biography - Ben Winston

Born in San Mateo California on July 13th 1992. Got into art at a young age and soon became obsessed with film after receiving my first vhs-c camera at age 10. What started as blowing up model spaceships with firecrackers, turned into stopmotion animation shorts and by high school, live action war and horror videos with my friends. After high school, I went to film school at the San Francisco Academy of Art and soon fell in love with 16mm film. Made some shorts there and dropped out after I learned all the equipment. I then moved to Atlanta Georgia where I got into a bad motorcycle wreck that funded my 1st feature film Hellbound.

Director Statement

I knew I wanted to make a black and white film from the get go. I thought about what subject matter would best suit this medium and decided old choppers and naked witches was the only option.
