THE BUILDING OF A FOUNDATION
A Video & Photography Collective. What's a collective? The three of us (April, Benjamin and David) have been collaborating on projects for over twenty years — from broadcast programming on such television networks as HGTV, INSP and the DIY Network — to creating massive programming for small businesses.
We learned early on we work well as a team and feed each other creatively. It’s a wonderful thing to find collaborators who help you elevate your game.
With Slang Creative, you can trust you are getting years of experience and industry prowess. We know this business inside and out, and we understand the power of video and digital marketing.
When it comes to hiring someone to help you tell your story, we want you to know we deeply appreciate the trust you’ll put with us and we will do everything we can to ensure you are wildly happy with the end results.
Benjamin shot his first film when he was in the fourth grade. Using a stationary 8 mm film camera and stop motion control, the ten second animation entitled, “Man Falls on Banana” inspired this thing he calls a career.
Later in life, he received his BA degree in Media Communications from Carson-Newman University, interned for Magnovox in their corporate video production facility, worked for PBS Televison, served as President of the Digital Video Professionals Association (DVPA), launched his own successful video production company called Aardvark Interactive Studios and is currently co-founder of Slang Creative.
He loves his girls Rebecca and Abby. He’s passionate about God, Clemson football, music, 80s trivia, hiking, camping, white water rafting and playing tennis. He also knows every 80s song ever written.
As a life-long photography hobbiest, Benjamin finally put highlights from the last few years of photo-taking into a public collection called J BENJAMIN creative.
