About

Bio:

Bennett came to directing through a background in fine art after a stint of working in the political and financial industries. He started out by making small promos for some electronic artists in the Northeast of England and since then, has gone on to direct a number of music videos, including “Hope Inside the Fire” by Foreign Fields, which earned him a Gold Cannes Lion for Excellence in Music Video in 2017. Bennett’s work is driven by high-concept storytelling, an emotional core and wrapping visual context around the crux of an idea.  He currently resides in Brooklyn, NY
