This craft-driven approach is vivid in his diverse projects, whether its crafting an 80s inspired animated music video for The Strokes, directing the star studded music video "The Three Branches of Government" for Netflix's We the People, or working with notable brands like Converse, Disney, and Adult Swim.
Benjy's innate passion and innovative to his workspirit in animation is felt in every frame, his latest work includes Supervising Director on the Max original 'Scavenger's Rein' a thrilling drama centered on a group of castaways fending for their lives on a remote alien planet, and Animation Director for "Kill Team kill" episode of Love Death and Robots Vol. 3.
