Ben Altenberg

Ben Altenberg is a documentary filmmaker originally from Albuquerque, NM currently living in Austin, TX. He spent several years working as a videographer for various public health and education nonprofits in New Mexico, single-handedly producing public service announcements, educational videos, and promotional videos for small businesses in need. He completed his master’s degree in Media Studies at the University of Texas at Austin in 2015, receiving an Outstanding MA Thesis Honorable Mention award from RTF for his research in American documentary history. Since 2014 he has been contributing to a number of nationally-televised nonfiction productions such as the ESPN 30 for 30 documentaries Brian and the Boz and Phi Slama Jama.


Field Humphrey

Field Humphrey is an award-winning filmmaker, editor and cameraman based out of Austin, TX.  A native of Roswell, Georgia, Field began working at Zero Point Zero Productions in New York where he was a Post-Production Supervisor and DIT on productions including CNN’s doc Jeremiah Tower: The Last Magnificent and Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. His editorial portfolio includes: ESPN’s 30 for 30 doc Phi Slama Jama—which earned him his first broadcast editor credit—as well as the award-winning short documentary Let ‘Em Know You’re There and RA’s recently finished feature documentary The Shake-Up. In addition to post-production, Field has shot projects for clients that include: Fox Sports, ESPN, Amazon Music, History Channel, and Esquire Network.  


Patrick Newman

Austinite Patrick Newman has had the good fortune to play major roles on several productions over the past few years. Since graduating from the University of Texas’ film program, Patrick has been a Producer on the TV Documentary, MLB Presents: The Eighth Wonder, a Production Coordinator on the History Channel special, Alcatraz: Search for the Truth, and perhaps most enjoyably, an Associate Producer on the Emmy-Award winning installment to ESPN’s 30 for 30 Documentary series, Brian and the Boz. If he’s not wearing one of the many hats afforded to the producer role, that means he’s likely opted for a helmet and a bike ride.
