‘On The Lot’ Episode 5 (June 6th, ’07)

As one of 15 finalists Trever James submitted a 3 minute film, ‘Teri (Blind Date)’. The film features Ben playing a down to earth guy with an Australian accent, named ‘Ben’.., imagining the worst while he waits for his date, Teri, to turn up. On the show the panel of 3 film-experienced judges gave Trever’s film praise and criticism. Outspoken judge, Gary Marshall, had this to say about Ben’s performance:
