Ben Procter is a veteran creative designer with more than two decades of award-winning experience collaborating with the top creative minds, brands, and franchises in the entertainment industry.
In his world-building role as production designer for James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water (working in tandem with co-designer Dylan Cole), Ben conceived and managed the construction of all elements of the live-action world, including numerous, high-tech sets and vehicles, both practically and digitally, through the virtual production and visual effects processes. Additionally, he has worked closely with the Avatar franchise teams and partners, ensuring concept and design integrity across games, theme parks, publishing, television, corporate partnerships, and more. The Way of Water is not his first trip to Pandora, however, as Ben was also a concept art director on Avatar, which among its numerous accolades earned for the art department team an Art Directors Guild Award for Excellence in Production Design.
Ben also served as production designer on Gavin Hood’s adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s landmark sci-fi novel Ender’s Game, starring Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, and Abigail Breslin. His credits as art director include three installments in the Transformers franchise—Age of Extinction, Dark of the Moon, and Revenge of the Fallen—as well as Tron: Legacy (as VFX Art Director). Previously, he was a concept designer on such blockbusters as Prometheus, Superman Returns, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
A native of New York City, Ben currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, son, and altogether too many dogs.
