Ben Smith

Executive Creative Director, The Mill, USA

Ben started his journey at The Mill as a 3D artist and VFX supervisor back in 2002 and has since creatively spearheaded some of The Mill’s most recognizable work, such as Sony Playstation ‘Mountain’, Norfolk Southern’s ‘City of Possibilities’ and Coca Cola’s ‘It’s Mine’, which was named Spot of the Decade by Adweek.

Other creative highlights and iconic work include Direct TV’s ‘Opulence’ and Playstations ‘A Day In The Life’ and the multi award winning Marco Polo Title Sequence amongst others.

Using his rich knowledge of VFX, Ben has carved a niche out of directing rich visual work that uses a combination of animation techniques and live action footage.

Ben’s latest creative endeavors have seen him travel from the Red Carpet to the Super Bowl 50th Anniversary with a range of projects that span traditional advertising, title sequence and short film format.
