Ben Kumanovski

Ben Kumanovski

Director at Global Pictures
Surry Hills, Australia


Recognising that many of the great filmmakers had beards (Kubrick, Spielberg, Lucas, Coppola), Ben believes it's no coincidence his facial hair grows thick and fast.

Ben’s story begins as a boy, fascinated by the production of great films, and a burning desire to tell stories on screen. This passion for visual storytelling has fuelled his career as a filmmaker.

Having studied his craft with the likes of the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS), the University of New England (UNE) and JMC Academy, Ben's style is defined by its distinctly cinematic visuals. He is also a full member of the Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS).

During his career Ben has worked with a variety of known talent including Axle Whitehead (Home and Away), Mikey Robins (Good News Week), Tahir Bilgic (Fat Pizza, Houseos), Rob Shehadie (Fat Pizza) and Darryl Brohman (The Footy Show).

Working with brands such as Toyota, TAFE, Mortgage House and Lowes, Ben has directed and shot numerous TVC’s, campaign films, branded content, corporate videos, music videos, and short films.
