Anvil dust, chopper oil and tank paint. It's not hard to see how Eddie Beniston got the name 'Dirty Ed'. This mini doc focuses on the life, craft and what is just the start of Ed's custom tank art legacy.
We worked with Ed at his home in Yorkshire to produce this short documentary as part of an ongoing series that focuses on creatives and their creative process. Like many creatives Ed has a story to tell that he expresses through his growing collection of tanks painted for his clients.
Ed was open to shooting the interview with a very loose structure so that we could give him room to explore his story and delve into that creative process. We were able to shoot this over a day with minimal crew for minimal interference to his workflow and loved catching up with the man, the myth, the legend.
