“His eye and attention to detail...”
Ben Hoffman has served as Director of Photography for three major projects produced by my company, Plausible Films. They include a feature documentary, a scripted series and a documentary series.
Ben’s work ethic is second to none, but his eye and attention to detail is what makes us keep hiring him. Ben’s camera has a way to telling a story while capturing the essence of the thematic elements at hand. His work is aesthetically pleasing and contributes to the film's distinctive character and identity.
In addition, when we’ve been short-handed, he has the ability to be a “one man band,” handling all of the duties, including sound, with flawless efficiency. And due to that, he works well independently without much oversight.
I highly recommend Ben Hoffman and have total confidence that anyone hiring him would write a similar letter to this one.

“Superb footage and careful data management...”
Ben Hoffman is not only a talented cinematographer, he is a joy to work with. I have had the pleasure of working with Ben on two feature length documentaries and I couldn’t have asked for a better fit. He is professional, easy to communicate with and always prepared for whatever obstacles come his way. The quality of his footage is superb and he is incredibly careful in managing the data after each shoot to ensure no errors occur. He is a master at lighting any situation and makes every frame look the absolute best it possibly can. On top of all that, he has a fantastic list of equipment that is kept in impeccable condition and available at a moments notice. I am thrilled to recommend him any chance I get and look forward to having the opportunity to work with him on all of my future endeavors!
