Benny Nicks

Benny Nicks is a Brooklyn-based director and visual artist with an already accomplished career as a cinematographer - his comprehensive approach to filmmaking informs the consistent tonality and aesthetic of his work.

Ben has collaborated with some of the world’s leading artists including Usher, James Franco, Daniel Arsham, Justin Peck, Juelz Santana, Jonah Bokaer and Abbott Miller. His work with Mr. Arsham saw a premiere of their film FUTURE RELIC at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival. In 2013, Ben’s collaboration with Abbott Miller and NYC Ballet soloist Tom Gold culminated in ‘Dot Dot Dot,’ an iPad dance application that received a Smithsonian People’s Design Award nomination.

Ben’s most recent music video CHAINS, featuring Usher, focused on the issue of police shootings, and released in early 2016 to critical acclaim.
