Films

I work as a cinematographer and videographer. In 2013 I was the Lighting Cameraman on feature film “One – the movie” shot in Bristol (www.facebook.com/ONEtheMovieBristol) and at the start of 2014 I was the Director of Photography on feature “Oliver Rocket” shot in Bath (www.facebook.com/OliverRocketmovie). I have been DoP on over a dozen short films as well (8 in just the first 6 months of 2014!).

I can work as director of photography, camera op, editor, director in any combination. Final output can be at any resolution upto 1080p, usually for the web but I also create DVD or Blu-ray discs. My main video camera is broadcast quality. I am connected with several make up artists, set designers, costume designers, producers and other film making crew.

My basic rate card (excluding travel):

  • me along with all my gear
    • £80/hour
    • £500/day (max. 10 hour day)
  • just me (you provide camera, lenses, etc.)
    • £30/hour
    • £200/day (max. 10 hour day)
  • Editing
    • £20/hour
    • £150/day (max. 10 hour day)
    • I edit using Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC, etc.
    • I can deliver the video online, on DVD or Blu-ray

I own a lot of gear (see below) which isn’t always needed – let me know what you want to do and I will work out a rate to cover just the necessary gear. Please feel free to talk to me (email owenbenson1@gmail.com or phone +44 (0) 7730 954 751) about what you want to achieve and I will see how best I can work with you.
