Ben Gill

1st assistant director

I have been a 1st Assistant Director for more than 25 years, shooting over 1500 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 good French and reasonable Spanish. I am based in London and love shooting there but have also worked in France, Spain, Italy, Romania, Germany, Holland, Austria, Switzerland, Ireland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Romania, Ukraine, Russia, Croatia, Greece, Turkey, Portugal, Sweden, Iceland, Norway, 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.
