Benna is exploring all of the industries that storytelling exists in - Spoken word, Poetry, Film/TV, Books and the rest.
Benna is a Brixton born, South London raised writer. Since Durand primary school he has been in love with words and how they are put together to create worlds on a piece of paper. His journey started in Stockwell park high school when Media studies caught his attention by showing him a glimpse of how his favourite films done what they did to create the narratives he loves soo much. His passion for telling stories through film followed him into his late teenage years where he started writing scripts and attending film courses. He finally found himself as a runner on the Channel 4 series ‘Youngers’ and the BBC show ‘Peaky Blinders’ whilst still making short films on the estate with his friends. Once he had a peak into the industry and how it works, he realised being on set at that time wasn’t for him but his love for writing and telling stories hadn’t swayed, this passion led him into the performance aspect of storytelling.
Benna brings storytelling into corporate spaces by connecting with the internal culture of any given brand and combining their themes, values and principles to create bespoke commissions for any area of the business in any industry.
He has worked with various brands including the ones below.
