1. What's your full name?

Benjamin James Barton

2. One thing most people don't know about


I'm afraid of bats.

3. Life or death situation, pick your favourite film?

John Carpenter's The Thing.

4. Where does your inspiration come from? 

The thought of being able to look back when

it's all said and done and be proud of my work. 

5. If you could do anything right now, what would it be?

I'd probably go hang with the Dalai Lama for a bit.

6. Favourite meal? 

Bacon, eggs and coffee.

7. Favourite genre of music? 

90s era hiphop has a big place in my

heart, but I can honestly go from

Mozart to Meatloaf in one playlist.

8. If you could work with anyone in

the world, who would it be? 

I think Spike Jonze would be a really

cool person to work alongside, and I'm

a big fan of his work.

9. Film or digital?

For a sound guy that's more of a digital vs.

analog question haha. Obviously the digital

revolution has made so many things easier and more

affordable, while analog still offers a lot

when it comes to adding character and those

intangible qualities. I think the magic really

happens when you're able to utilize

both to compliment each other.

10. Red or blue pill? 

I tend to walk my own line,

so I'll go with the green pill.

11. Where can you be found on the 

inter web machine?
