Ben Dolenc is a filmmaker, director, and producer based out of Ventura, CA. After a career as an outdoor athlete, where he was in front of the lens, Ben jumped at a chance to move to Los Angeles and learn the world of broadcast television. Producing over 18 television shows from American Idol to Ax Men for networks like NBC, Discovery Channel and National Geographic, he found his niche creating content that documents the relationships surrounding complex characters like bush pilots, loggers, and fishermen.
Ben opened the Bowsprit Company a small production company in 2011 that he directs commercials, short films, and branded content through. Bowsprits clients have included Toyota, Lululemon, Red Bull, and Suzuki. In 2017, Wilshire Studios (NBC) tapped him to develop a television show around the New York Times best-selling book What Doesn't Kill Us. He is currently in production on a festival short film about two DIY land sailors who broke the 100 mph wind speed record mark in a garage-engineered hand-built land yacht named the Iron Duck.
We have been in the industry since 2011.
