When Benjamin MINEL started his broadcasting training at the university, Benjamin did not know what he would eventually do for a living. He just knew he liked well-composed frames, which is how he decided to work as cinematographer on student projects and short movies. Benjamin worked as stage manager on the feature film "L'Oeil de l'Astronome" directed by Stan Neumann.

He is also interested in urban explorative photography.

The goal was for the story and the special effects to be related, and to complement each other.
