Biscuit Filmworks has added Ben Strebel to its roster of directors in the U.S. and the U.K. for commercials and branded content.
Working across music videos, short film and commercials, Strebel has developed a stunning portfolio of critically acclaimed work, picking up awards including Gold and Bronze Lions at Cannes, Ciclope and Kinsale Sharks honors, a Young Directors Award and D&AD pencils. His commercial campaigns include spots for Nike, Samsonite, Lexus, Nissan, Apple, Adidas, BMW and Jägermeister. His Guy Cotton film “A Trip To Sea” alone earned assorted accolades, including a Cannes Gold Lion, four Bronze Lions, five D&AD pencils, Clio, One Show and Webby honors.
Prior to joining Biscuit, Strebel was repped by production house Skunk in the U.S. and U.K. He is known for blending cinematic realism with a surreal twist, commanding a vivid filmic canvas with which to tell human stories—changing and diversifying the viewer’s perception of the world.
“I’ve admired Ben’s commercial and music video work for a long time and we’re already developing a great creative partnership,” said Rupert Reynolds-MacLean, managing director at Biscuit U.K.
Strebel studied History of Art in Edinburgh, and created fashion films for Vivienne Westwood and AllSaints early in his production career.
