Ben Ireland

Ben was born in Chicago Ill and grew up in Seattle WA. In addition to his filmmaking, Ben has been the drummer with cosmic rockers Sky Cries Mary for the last 9 years.

"I make films about my obsessions and passions. They are diaries of space and time through which I attempt to externalize my rich inner world. My films are impressionistic and symbolic in nature. Being involved with Emerald Reels has put me in touch with like-minded artists. I have made new friends that inspire me and help me to grow as an artist. My goal as an artist is to explore and discover my true identity."
