Benjamin Pascoe is an independent filmmaker who spent over a decade in Austin, Texas working on both sides of the camera. With a background in acting and several films under his belt, Ben transitioned to the role of producer before becoming an instructor for the Austin Film Society. By the time he entered the MFA program at Ohio University School of Film, Ben had produced two feature films and a variety of smaller projects ranging from music videos to live-fundraising events. He has since written, directed and edited a number of short films that have screened at festivals throughout the nation. In 2009, his film, "Empathy", won an Award of Merit from The Indie Fest, and in 2010 his film, "Nuts", was a finalist in the "It Came From Kuchar" experimental film competition sponsored by IndiePix. His most recent project, "Leave It on the Track" (2012), is a feature documentary that explores roller derby culture in Austin, Texas. Ben looks forward to continuing his creative works while teaching and mentoring students at Avila University.
