Ben joined the BBC in 2000 as a casting assistant, and rose through the ranks swiftly and started casting dramas in his own right, with hundreds of soap episodes and several TV movies including: Eastenders, Doctors, The Afternoon Play, Casualty and some short films under his belt.
After 15 years at the BBC Ben branched out to became a freelance casting director and has worked on a number of short films and features, as well as running regular workshops and one-on-one events with actors.
Through working with writers and producers, Ben casts the very best actors (including those all important names who help unlock financing) into the shoes of a character and is richly experienced in guiding, assisting and encouraging all of the creatives involved.
Ben will share with us some of his experiences, ideas, thoughts and insights.
