Ben Barlow is a videographer based in Provo, Utah with over five years of experience in his craft. Ben was first introduced to videography during his sophomore year of high school, editing a lightsaber battle video that was painted frame by frame until its completion three months later. He has since grown from the videos he created using Adobe After Effects, Blender, and Davinci Resolve to create more cinematic and closer-to-life videos that can help spread positivity and change the world for the better.
Through constant creation and a different perception of how most view the world, Ben has grown constantly seeking to push the boundaries on what is possible and what can be accomplished. You do not need to be signed by a label to create an album, you do not need to be contracted with a production company to create a full-length film, and you do not need anyone else’s permission to create the art that lives inside of you.
