Film Teacher, Concord Academy
As a Boston-based documentary filmmaker, editor, and teacher, Ben Stumpf loves to make films that raise awareness about social causes. He produced and edited a documentary for WGBH about the pros and cons of competition, and he worked with his students on another WGBH short about global warming’s effects on New England fishing. He worked on camera, sound, editing, and research for a feature-length documentary, Traces of the Trade, which opened the POV season in 2008. He has produced awareness-raising short pieces on time banks, local currencies, immigration, and climate change, and he cut the trailers for the 2009 and 2010 Boston Jewish Film Festivals. Ben currently teaches high school film and creative technology courses at Concord Academy and the Video for Teachers summer workshop at Maine Media Workshops and College.
