Name: Tom Bennett
Job Role: Editor/Animator/Camera operator
What did you do before joining the team at Hurricane?
I was in a similar in-house role for a global marketing agency. Shooting and editing videos for large global brands including Ericsson and SAAB.
What does your role at Team Hurricane involve?
A little bit of everything! In my first few months at Hurricane I’ve worked as a camera operator on multiple shoots, across four countries. I’ve also handled a variety of post-production tasks including editing, 2d and 3d animation, compositing and grading.
The best thing about working at Hurricane is… ?
The people. It’s a lovely team and everyone gets on really well which creates a great working environment. The variety of the work is also a real bonus.
What would be included in a montage of your best bits so far?
Shooting the recent AXA promo in Hong Kong and Paris, has to be at the top. A really fun job in two amazing cities. The charity abseil was also really good fun.
Who would play you in a movie of your life?
If it were up to me, Daniel Day-Lewis. He’d have to put on a few pounds though. Realistically, probably someone terrible, like Seth Rogen.
Top of your current workday playlist?
Not one for playlists so much, more of an album person. Cope, by Manchester Orchestra, or Hurry and the Harm by City and Color.
Best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Something like, “Don’t worry about what people think of you, because they’re probably not thinking of you anyway.” I don’t know, I probably wasn’t really listening.
