This student’s not your stereotypical layabout.
Ben Aston hasn’t even graduated from film school yet, but he’s already got some pretty interesting films on his reel. Born in London, Ben grew up in Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Australia and Bath, before returning to London to study Philosophy at Kings College.
With a really useful degree in thinking about abstract stuff under his belt, he went about setting up a production company with his friends, making short films, music videos and ads – one of which ended up paying for his first term at the London Film School.
He’s already received festival accolades for his film Dinner and a Movie and is currently working on his graduation film He Took His Skin Off For Me, which looks to be shaping up to be, well, something different.
