DiRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY
Ben has been working in the film and television industry for nearly ten years and has covered everything from sporting events, to documentaries, to epic productions such as ‘The Grand Tour’. His vast experience, Aussie charm and calm attitude is a winner on set, alongside his all-weather thongs.
An experienced editor and cameraman, Maj has worked for clients such as Sony and the BBC. In 2017 he directed his first short film 'The Pitch' which was accepted to Cannes short film corner. Also finding time to write, direct and run his vlog ‘Not an Englishman’, Maj brings a wealth of experience to 'The Passenger’ team, as well as what every production needs; some dry Slovenian wit.
After graduating with a Degree in English Literature, Elena has worked as a production designer on numerous shorts, including Maj Jukic's film 'The Pitch'. Her style and eye for detail shone and the rest is history. An aspiring Director, Elena never fails to surprise - trust us.
Having studied Digital Film Production at the University of Chichester, Mike has worked as a Boom Operator and Sound Recordist on numerous short films, documentaries and features. Always taking pride in his work, he is the man to go to if you're in need of headphones.
A freelance makeup artist, Camile's work has featured in Feroce Magazine and Vogue Italia. Having previously worked on short films and music videos she quickly and seamlessly blended in with the Passenger team. With musical talents to boot, Camile is a joy to have on set.
A talented artist, Magda excels in numerous artistic forms and her work on 'The Passenger' was everything we wanted. A pleasure to work with, she created our striking poster and storyboard shots, sharing with us her ideas and personal style. As a bonus, she can also explain the science of nutrition and your body.
Originally a drummer with the band Slowcoaches, Matt has a natural ear and innate talent for music and rhythm. He released the EP Infrasonic Nature on the Hremig label in 2010 and has worked in different roles across the music industry. Brian first heard Matt's music while working with him earlier this year and instantly knew that his style and vision would bring an unnerving and haunting score to The Passenger.
