Ben Gill 1st AD

I have  been a 1st Assistant Director for more than 20 years, shooting over 1000 commercials as well as music videos and features. There is little that I haven't seen before and I am adept at handling crowds, celebrities, stunts, children, animals, cars, boats and helicopters. I bring a calming presence to set while getting things done smoothly and efficiently. I speak fluent French and reasonable Spanish. I am based in London and love shooting there but have also worked in France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland,  Ireland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Romania, Ukraine, Russia, Croatia, Greece, Turkey, Portugal, Sweden, Iceland, Bulgaria, Azerbaijan, USA, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, Venezuela, Panama,  Japan, China, Thailand, Jamaica, India, South Africa, Kenya, Egypt, Qatar and UAE. Outside work I raise teenagers, read books, watch films, cycle and listen to The Fall.

I avoid most social media like the plague because it rots the brain but I do do Instagram (which also rots the brain but does encourage photography)
