Ben Dewey was born and raised at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Denver, Colorado. In 2000 he got his first 2.1 megapixel camera and was PSYCHED. In high school he began taking video cameras on mountain climbing trips and making adventure documentaries. Now he lives in New York and shoots narrative films, music videos, and documentaries, but his mind still spends a lot of time in the mountains. You can see his work at BenDeweyFilms.com.
At the tender age of 17, Ben Dewey accepted the challenge of producing the video, WHAT YOU LEAVE BEHIND, which is used for educational purposes to raise awareness that, suddenly, your perfect world can be altered, beyond the ability of human understanding. Our existence is so very fragile–this is the message that we want to convey, not just to teenagers, but to everyone.
