Actor And Writer Benedikt Sebastian’s Love For Words And How He Brings Them To Life

Please introduce yourself. What do you do? Why? What do you want people to know about you?

My name is Benedikt Sebastian, I’m an Actor and a writer with a Bachelor’s in Visual Communication and a Master’s in Creative Writing.

I’m a storyteller using different mediums and disciplines to create worlds. I love everything filmmaking and relish the process. I’m a filmmaker!

What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?

My passion for storytelling and my determination to succeed as a filmmaker are what drive me. There are stories to be told and adventures to pursue and life is short, best we get to it!

Besides that, I love the collaborative space within the creative world. I enjoy meeting new people and creating with others.

Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do.

My mother was a writer and a storyteller and as a child, I was fascinated by the stories she wrote and then told us at night. She would spend hours in front of her typewriter and later computer and I would draw on the floor and look up and imagine creating like that.

She would also always take my sister and me to theatre shows and I was always blown away at the mysteries of how those shows were created and seeing words come to life. Mix in with that a healthy dose of watching cartoons or reading and all I could think about all the time were different characters going on adventures.

What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through and how did you grow through it?

What would life be without challenges to overcome? Very bland. I feel like every year I task myself with a handful of new challenges. Every time I write a new screenplay I spend time fixing it and trying to make it better. Every time I put a project together it is an enormous mission with lots of parts to oil.

I believe we should never stop growing so every year I find new avenues in my line to pursue, whether it is studying new disciplines of creativity or pursuing more projects within the collective field. Each one brings hardships and challenges and opportunities.

The biggest challenge was moving from South Africa to Los Angeles and establishing myself as a creative. All the elements associated with that have been extremely difficult to navigate. But here I am and what an adventure it is!

Who are the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could elevate your career or business? Why these specific individuals?

These change all the time but a the time of writing I would love to meet and work with Christopher Nolan, Jason Blum, and Eric Kripke. CN for his insane genius of a brain when it comes to sculpting multi-layer narratives that you can watch over and over again.

JB because I think he is one of the most exceptional and intelligent producers but also specifically genre producers out there. EK because I love his shows show much and would love to be staffed as a writer on one of them.
