Welcome to BenjaminDewhurst.com

filmmaker, multimedia artist, part-time superhero (shh)

Thank you for visiting my site.

I’m an award-winning independent filmmaker and multimedia artist. I’ve written/produced/directed/animated/edited many narrative short films, documentary short films, commercials, and corporate videos, and I’ve crewed countless others. Storytelling in all forms is my passion and purpose. I’m a writer for the popular independent filmmaking blog NoFilmSchool.com, and I serve on the executive committee of the Indiana Media Production Alliance.

My short film ”the best part of my day“ won the Clover and Maggie Award Celebrating Life in the Cleveland International Film Fest.  It was also shown at the Heartland Film Festival in Indianapolis and the Big Island Film Festival in Hawaii. My short film “in the long run” premiered at the Indiana State Museum IMAX theatre and was also shown at the Big Island Film Festival. Most recently, I released “It’s the LAW.”

I’m presently working on a Static Shock fanfilm, and I have several scripts in development.

When not involved in filmmaking or other motion art, I’m very into jogging on the Monon trail, enjoying a nice campfire/firepit, losing at fantasy football, and enjoying a local microbrew (Sun King and Three Floyds are a couple favorites). I read up daily on my favorite blogs daily (boingboing, Seth Godin, Geekologie, to name a few).  I’m a total board game hipster, as I probably have board games you haven’t heard of *dramatic hair flip*. I’ll occasionally get back to my video game roots — Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy Tactics,  Earthbound, etc. I like to spend time with my girlfriend and German shepherd puppy.

Thanks again for visiting.
