Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Knew he loved movies more than anything else in life, but never thought it could be a career.
Nothing else really jumped out at him, so he majored in communications.
After college, found a production assistant job and fell in love with the film set on the first day.
Did the "grunt work" as a PA, mostly doing coffee orders.
Quit that job to go work on a film for no pay; film got canceled the day he was supposed to start.
A friend felt bad that the film fell through, invited him to help shoot a Wu Tang Clan video.
People at the shoot assumed he knew what he was doing but Ben had never worked grip.
Faked his way through that first music video and the rest was history.
