Benjamin’s debut feature was Sundance hit 'Dream Horse', directed by Euros Lyn and starring Toni Collette and Damien Lewis; and he has since gone on to work with Terence Davies on his critically acclaimed Siegfried Sassoon biopic 'Benediction', starring Jack Lowden and Peter Capaldi.

He has also orchestrated and/or conducted the scores to a host of films, series and games including Aaron Sorkin’s 'Being The Ricardos' and BAFTA-winners 'Landscapers' and 'Immortality'; and has composed the music for a series of high-profile advertising campaigns for Google, Honda, Emirates and many more.

Beyond film, Benjamin is a longterm collaborator with some of the World’s top Classical, Folk and World musicians; including RPS Award-winner Abel Selaocoe and Martin Green, for whom he arranged the Ivor Novello Award-winning 'Aeons'. He has also written a series of concert and site-specific works, including commissions for St Paul’s Cathedral and the WDR Funkhausorchester.
