Ben Ross knew he wanted to be a filmmaker from the first time he visited Universal Studios as a five-year-old. Born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, he spent his early years soaking up film, experimenting with his own style, and creating his own short videos.
Ben received his formal education at The University of Michigan and received his BA in Film and Video Studies. While immersing himself in film theory and production in the classroom, Ben also took on a full-time position with the UofM athletic department as a videographer for their 21 varsity teams. Michigan Sports Television laid the groundwork for Ben’s documentary style, which has carried over into his commercial work.
