Community Films has added the directing duo Ben/Dave--consisting of Ben Hurst and Dave Thomas--to its talent roster.
Hurst and Thomas first met in Salt Lake City, Utah, when the latter was an agency creative director and Hurst was directing commercials. They later joined forces and have gone on to turn out work for such brands as Pepsi, Bowlmor/AMF, Honda, Samsung, Progressive Insurance, Heinz and GE. Prior to coming aboard Community Films, Ben/Dave was with Washington Square Films for commercials and branded content.
Ben/Dave joins a Community directorial lineup which includes Seth Gordon, Jared Hess, Pam Thomas, Clay Williams, Emil Möller, Marius Crowne, Clay Tweel, Albert Uria, Aleysa Young, and John Wikstrom.
Hurst and Thomas said they were drawn to Community on several levels, including their admiration for its well curated roster of directors, and their affinity for company partners/exec producers Lizzie Schwartz and Carl Swan.
