"I worked on my very first feature film with Ben Pohl.  The whole experience, from casting to production, was professional, done with extreme care and thought to all involved and incredibly fun.  Ben is the kind of director who combines technical skill with a really gifted voice to speak and work with artists.  A rarity. "
Lisa Coronado, Actor
 
"Ben knows the language of storytelling.  He instinctively gets it.  Whenever we collaborate, it's a great experience."
Geoff Dunlap, Director of Photography
