Ben Sharony has been working as a composer and music producer in New York City for the past eight years. Recent work includes his score for the feature film Fatal Secrets (Showtime, The Movie Channel, 2009 Best Score Prize - Moondance Film Festival), and the short film Bridge (Audience Choice Award - New York Blackout Film Festival.) His commercial work can be heard on MTV, Vh1, Sundance Channel, and Nickelodeon. His original song “Dumpling Butts,” written for comedian Tracy Morgan was central to the promotion of Vh1‘s Hip-Hop Honors Ceremony. Ben’s work is defined by its eclectic and diverse influences; pop, hip-hop, and rock sensibilities filter through and converse with symphonic and classical technique.
The short film Last Words of the Holy Ghost marks Sharony’s first foray into writing and directing. It has garnered multiple awards and screened at over a dozen festivals internationally including Austin, LA Shorts, Atlanta, Mexico and Lucerne. View the trailer and learn more about the project here.
