Benjamin Hosking, Producer
Ben Hosking comes from Boston, but has lived in Indianapolis and Australia. He got involved in the film by way of offering feedback on Ben Haven Taylor’s script, and after fruitful discussions and a focusing of scope, Ben was brought on to produce Ben’s short, beginning a dynamic some call BenSquared, which may cause side effects of productivity and name abbreviations. Some of Ben (Hosking)’s diverse influences include his experiences as a clothing store manager, real estate agent, and startup marketer, as well as his own background as a writer and storyteller. He is inspired by filmmakers such as the Wachowski sisters (Cloud Atlas), Richard Linklater (Boyhood), Guðmundur Arnar Guðmundsson (Whale Valley), Damon Lindelof (The Leftovers), and Paolo Sorrentino (Youth, The Young Pope). He recently wrote and directed his first short film, “Dancing on the Yellow Edges,” shot by Ben (Haven Taylor).
