Ben Bishop is a Chicago filmmaker that acts, writes, directs, and edits most of his films. During his training to be an actor, Ben learned the value and joy of telling stories. He found directing actors to not be natural, after all the times he had been directed. Ben learned how to edit along the way, and learns new things with each project.
Ben finds a different type of artistic fulfillment with each of the four jobs. Each is a different interpretation and each has to be performed from a different standpoint in order to create the best possible story.
