Editor / Producer Ben "REDD" Rojas began his career, oddly enough, in the hospitality industry working for hotel giant Marriott in various facets of management. It was there that a team attitude and relentless drive to exceed customer expectations was born. A childhood passion turned weekend club-gig, DeeJaying, refined REDD's auditory senses. Florida International University’s School of Journalism & Mass Communications shaped his mind… But it's 20 years editing, compositing and most recently producing and directing that has polished his creative talents.
Throughout the years, REDD has worked at several of South Florida’s top facilities: KSC KREATE where he helped create the video & film division... Only a year later, KSC launched KREATE FILMS and produced it's first feature film the romantic comedy "Finding Joy", which is slated for theatrical release in early 2013. The renowned post facility, Vision Touch Amplify (GA.) tapped Ben to help open VTA FL., which had huge success in the late 80's & early 90's; later becoming Post Edge. And many others including: Manhattan Transfer Miami, Estefan Television Productions, Broadcast Video Inc., Discovery Production Group, Direct TV and in 2000, PanAmerican Sports Network. It was there that REDD took on both the creative and business side of TV by taking on the roll of Chief Editor overseeing the Post division.
Adept at long or short format, brands (Benefit Cosmetics, City Furniture, Karisma Resorts, Turbana Banana), networks (ESPN, Discovery, NBC Telemundo) and content creators (One World Sports Media, The Brand Group, KSC Kreate) turn to REDD for creative editorial, production and finishing.
In 2005, Ben expanded his portfolio to include feature films: “Hitters Anonymous” an action packed dark comedy directed by Monte A. Young starring Steven Bauer, Clint Howard and Linda Blair. In 2009: "JARRING", a psycho-thriller directed by Ivo Raza ( www.ivoraza.com ). In 2010 Ben & Ivo joined creative forces again on “Renting Washers” a satirically cute short taking the bronze at the Park City Music Film Festival. In 2012, while at KREATE FILMS, Ben cut and post supervised “FINDING JOY”, a romantic comedy starring Josh Cooke, Liane Balaban, Barry Bostwick and Laine Kazan. And recently, again teaming up with director Ivo Raza, the short “17 Hours In Bed” staring David Lipper, Jennifer Dawson and Aniela McGuiness.
