BENJI EDWARDS

DGA 1ST AD

I am a member of The Directors Guild of America.
I have been working in the Film industry since 1991 & have been a 1st AD since 2000.
I have shot north of 750 Commercials spanning over just under 70 countries.
I have also worked on over 40 long form TV productions including Amazon, Disney, Nat Geo, BBC, & SKY.
I have experienced anything & everything that has been thrown my way including choregraphing and collaborating large stunt set ups, tracking vehicles, process trailers, shooting in & on water, ariel filming, large SFX sets ups including explosions, armoury, battle scenes, hostile environments, drones, large crowds, choreography & movement, fashion, beauty, food, VIPs, VFX, kids, animals.
I enjoy working in a collaborative environment on productions large and small
