Bennett Johnson BIO
An award-winning director and a UK-US dual citizen, Bennett’s experiences have taken him through a variety of cultures, industries, and modes of artistic expression. His first love for fine art informed his eye and approach to directing, while his studies and work experience in political sciences has drawn him to specific narratives and characters. He started out making promos for electronic artists in the Northeast of England directing a number of music videos, including “Hope Inside the Fire” by Foreign Fields, which earned him a Gold Cannes Lion for Excellence in Music Video in 2017. Bennett’s work is driven by high-concept storytelling with an emotional core, where the human experience comes to life with grit and honesty. Bennett is a sensitive and thoughtful filmmaker with a heart for a cause, and the technical flexibility to broaden his work into meaningful visual effects based projects. He currently resides in Brooklyn, NY.
