Benjamin Asciutto

Visual Artist / Filmmaker

I am a 21 year old third-year student at the University of Pittsburgh. My main passions growing up in New Jersey have always been taking photos and watching movies, so why not combine the two? After college, I have become very interested in a future career in the film industry within the production department. Pursuing an Honors Degree in Film and Business, I’m fascinated by the overlaps between both sides of my education.

I am the filmmaker behind “Next Stop”, which is a personal documentary short film about the effects of COVID-19 on our hometown of Leonia. I would love to expand my knowledge of production and develop more experiences within the film and entertainment industry by collaborating with the people from my hometown!
