About Ben Avchen
It all started in the 5th grade when I created a character called "Buzzy the Bee." It's how I got my username and it has stuck with me since 2006. In 2010, I expanded my Buzzy the Bee character into an animated series. It went on from May 2nd, 2010 to June 11th, 2012 where I made around 15 episodes total. With my knowledge now and tools I have at my disposal (Toon Boom Harmony), I hope to continue working on this series someday.
Before I quit working on these animations, I turned to editing live action skits with a group of friends we called "Final Generation." We posted our skits to a YouTube channel. This however, was short lived for there were disagreements. So we all split. Fortunately, we all remained friends, but focused our talents into our own YouTube channels.
In August, 2012, I joined my high school's broadcasting team and became producer of a show called "Royal 3 News." My responsibility was to edit and produce the episodes of this weekly news show. I eventually graduated from high school and moved on to working on improving my craft in editing.
After attending community college for a year and a half, I transferred to Columbia College Hollywood, a film school in Los Angeles and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Cinema and Television with an emphasis in film editing.
