Ben deHoedt

Composer / Film Maker

Ben deHoedt is an Australian musician and documentary film maker. He writes and releases music under his own name and with his band The American Public. Originally from Adelaide, he has lived in Melbourne since 2007 where he works by day as a social worker. Ben is making Disappear Here, a documentary about Australian rock group Glide, their much missed songwriter William Arthur and the shifting sands of the Australian music scene of the 1990’s. He has also been making a documentary about rock group The Police. Thus far made with the participation of Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers, with the intention of involving all three band members for a balanced narrative, All Noises by the Police is a visually arresting portrait of the band scored with their music and told in their own words through archival and contemporary interviews. Ben is writer, director and editor of both features.
