IndiePix, Celebrating Independent Film

Ben Hillman

Ben Hillman is a film maker, designer, writer and illustrator who loves subatomic particles and Betty Boop.

Ben made millions of animated sperm explode onto the screen in Spike Lee's film "She Hate Me." Bursting forth in the middle of a live action flick about a fired corporate whistleblower forced to make a living by impregnating lesbians, these sperm shots combine mixed media of live action, 2D and 3D animation.

The independent musical short "Little Red Jiving Hood" -- with music by Donald Sosin-- is a swinging tale of mystery, destiny, redemption and sukiyaki that has been screened in film festivals and won awards in the US, Europe and Asia.

In addition, Ben has written and illustrated several picture books including "The Devil Ate My Blintzes" (Waterfront Press) and "That Pesky Toaster" (The Walt Disney Company). He also conceived, wrote and designed a series of four pictorial science books for children published by Scholastic.: "How Big Is It?", "How Strong Is It?", "How Fast Is It?" and "How Weird Is It?." Publisher's Weekly calls them "so freakin' cool."

After obsessing for years about the evils of mass manipulation, Ben decided to do it himself by forming Ben Hillman & Company -- realizing his boyhood dream of messing with the minds of the general public (as well as making films and writing and illustrating books). He has won numerous awards for print and television advertising including the Art Directors Club, International Advertising Festival and Clio nominations.
