Benjamin joined the WSAcademy in 2021 after his debut feature film score to Dream Horse (Toni Collette, Damian Lewis) was singled out for praise in Variety and The Hollywood Reporter. He’s also worked behind the scenes on a series of projects including BAFTA-nominated scores to Landscapers (Orchestrator and Conductor) and Being The Ricardos (Orchestrator); and on Terence Davies’ hotly anticipated Siegfried Sassoon biopic Benediction (Musical Director).

Outside of visual media, Benjamin’s recent collaborations have included Martin Green’s Ivor Novello Award-winning Aeons at the Great Exhibition of the North, Celeste’s Surrealism Beyond Borders performance at the Tate Modern and Abel Selaocoe’s Africa Meets Europe at the BBC Proms.
