Ben Krueger is a dude with a beard in a northern city: Rockin’, Livin’ and Holdin’ Steady (AND keeping the letter “g” off of words ending in “ing”). He’s into episodic television playin’ rock n’ roll, huntin’ agates and eatin’ wrong. He’s also a Producer, Director and all around likable guy.
After attending film school in Minneapolis, Ben started his career as a Production Assistant – working freelance for many years. In 2009, he submitted a commercial (his first) for Doritos “Crash The Super Bowl” contest and was selected as a finalist. His spot “Snack Attack Samurai” aired in the 4th quarter of the 2010 Super Bowl and was “the most watched ad of all time” by Nielsen ratings. It was also rated “best ad with a samurai” by Samurai Zine, which is not a real magazine. Since then he’s kept busy working with Committee Films on all of its projects big and small. He’s been all over the world with Committee and hopes to keep doing just that.Ben’s trademark is his captain’s hat – he is currently on his seven(teen)th. “The Captain stands for quality,” he says, “and being cool with everyone you can, while you can.” He lives in Chaska with his awesome wife, rad sons and odd dog where they have a small garden and a great life.When asked to write a play-by-play fight between his favorite 8Os comedy star and favorite 8Os drama star (this is a standard interview question), Ben wrote about a bout (see how I did that?) between Fozzie Bear and Magnum PI. It speaks volumes about Ben’s character that Fozzie won in this scenario.
