About TROY BENJAMIN
TROY BENJAMIN is an author, writer, producer, part-time audio and on-camera host, sometimes dabbles in theatrical film marketing, and probably most noticeably an executive (but not a weirdo) nerd with an encyclopedic knowledge of the geek variety.
As an author, he’s curated the insight of Marvel Studios' VisDev department for How to Paint Characters the Marvel Studios Way, authored Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Seasons One through Four Declassified, and the Haynes Ghostbusters Ectomobile Owner's Workshop Manual, and contributed to the exhaustive Guidebook to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He also writes guest columns for the COMET and CHARGE television networks. He is currently in development and writing several forthcoming projects.
As a producer, he’s co-produced Studio 54, a documentary on the world's most famous nightclub, a documentary on urban planning and the iconic Jane Jacobs and Robert Moses, Citizen Jane: Battle for the City, the Alfonso Cuarón executive produced look at the evolution of filmmaking techniques, Looking to the Stars: The Evolution of Space Films, and is also a co-producer on the upcoming behind the scenes documentary Cleanin’ Up the Town: Remembering Ghostbusters for Bueno Productions. In addition, he’s worked for over ten years in marketing and behind the scenes content on projects for Marvel, Disney, Lucasfilm, Universal, Fox, Paramount, Sony, Warner Bros., Microsoft, and Summit Entertainment. He’s been trusted with content for properties including Star Wars, Transformers, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Alien, Gravity, Halo, Peanuts, The X-Files, Twilight, Deadpool, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and countless others.
And last but certainly not least; you might recognize him as an on-camera host for Ivan Reitman’s Ghostbusters-centric production company Ghost Corps, and the YouTube show Still Playing with Toys Live. Or you might recognize his voice as a frequent podcast guest and the co-host of the Ghostbusters Interdimensional Crossrip, a weekly Ghostbusters fan podcast (that yes, he also produces).
