Ben Richardson has been a part of the independent film scene for over 5 years, playing a wide range of characters along the way. Constantly pushing himself to grow as a filmmaker, person, and as an actor to be “true in imaginary circumstances.” He has a true passion and love for the art. He enjoys collaboration, and diving into characters that are nothing like himself, but finding an immersive level of authenticity to portray them.
In addition to acting, his short film writing/directing debut, REPERCUSSION, recently finished its film festival run. Garnering over 35 awards nominations, and 12 wins! Including individual accolades for “Best Screenplay,” “Best Lead Actor,” “Best Oklahoma Director,” and the “Horizon Award” which is given to the most up-and-coming actor/director in the state of Oklahoma.
More recently, Richardson has tried his hand at producing, citing that he wants to “learn all aspects of film.” To that, he has now produced 5 short films, and 2 features throughout the past three years, and is looking forward to continuing that trend in 2019.
