Ben deHoedt

Composer / Film Maker


Ben deHoedt is an Australian musician and documentary film maker. Originally from Adelaide, he has lived in Melbourne since 2007 where he works by day as a social worker. He recently resumed writing songs with his band the American Public after a 17 year hiatus. Ben is presently working on two projects. One is called "Disappear Here", a documentary about Australian rock group Glide, their much missed songwriter William Arthur and the shifting sands of the Australian music scene of the 1990’s. The other is about rock group The Police. Thus far made with the participation of Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers, "All Noises by the Police" is a visually arresting portrait of the band scored with their music and told in their own words through archival and contemporary interviews. Ben is writer, director and editor of both features.
