Ben Seresin



Ben Seresin has shot several of the biggest blockbuster action films of this century, including Michael Bay’s Pain & Gain and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Tony Scott’s final film Unstoppable, and Tom Cruise’s reboot of The Mummy. He is also cinematographer for Chaos Walking, the adaptation of the popular young adult novel starring Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland.

In July 2013, Seresin spoke with students at the New York Film Academy’s Union Square campus in New York in a conversation moderated by John Loughlin. The discussion included a lot of advice to students from Seresin, including “Try to stay detached. Be relaxed. Do not be stressed and trust your eyes.”
