Ben Gordon is an award-winning director specialising in social experiments and documentary-based advertising with an excellent ability to produce work ranging from humorous to emotional, very often both at the same time.

Keen to engage in the creative process early on, he thrives on making non-actors feel at home before the camera, allowing them to be themselves unselfconsciously or perform within the range of their capabilities.

Also an accomplished photographer, DP and editor, Ben Gordon’s versatility and refined aesthetics have led him to have a diverse body of work, from Cars to Comedy to Music Videos.

Festival recognition for his commercial work include Cannes Lions, Caples Awards, FIAP, El Ojo de Iberoamerica and El Sol.  His recent short film The Carriage or: Dracula & My Mother, a crossover documentary/horror film where he used his family and himself as actors, screened in over thirty festivals and took home numerous awards, most notably Best Short Film in the L.A. Fear & Fantasy Fest, the International Horror & Sci-Fi Film Fest and the South African Horrorfest.

Born in London to North American parents and raised on the Costa del Sol in Southern Spain, Ben Gordon fully embraces being from many places and nowhere at the same time.
