L.A.-based award-winning filmmaker Benjamin Walter grew up in the royal city of Versailles (France), cradle of the "Electro French Touch" (Air, Phoenix, Alex Gopher, Michel Gondry) and as far back as he can remember he always wanted to be a storyteller.

After working as a reporter, he moved to L.A. in 2012, at age 24, and got into the Directing Program at UCLA, where he directed a bunch of stylized genre shorts. There, he also began writing his first feature film, Pink Zone. The movie, shot in the summer of 2013 over the course of 12 days, had its World Premiere at the Chinese Theatre, was selected into a dozen film festivals and received several awards.
