  1. MDOT with Ben Hagarty Modern Day Overthinker 1:59:53

Ben Hagarty is a video director, cinematographer, and podcaster from Cedar Falls, Iowa.

On this episode (recorded 1/8/24), Ben and I discuss his journey to success as a creator who has worked with some of the biggest artists, celebrities, and brands in the world. His journey is inspiring to say the least. When it comes to his work ethic, networking skills, and talents behind the scenes, Ben is a creator like no other. His value in his industry is an another level. That is not him saying this either because he is too humble to say all of that… which is another reason I enjoyed speaking with Ben. We even talked about how much he could flex with his accomplishments, but doesn’t feel the need to do so. The dude has a Grammy award for his work on Homecoming: A Film By Beyonce and casually brought it up like it wasn’t a big deal. That’s the kind of Ben is. A successful guy with humility who keeps himself grounded. We talk about how and what attributes to those qualities as well.

We talked about a lot on this episode because Ben loves to talk about what he does considering he 100% loves what he does. I was also ready to listen and ask all the questions I could think of to learn more about a dude I have watched explode into a creative machine online for over a decade after connecting in Cedar Falls around 2010. 

Here are the 5 key topics of discussion I had with Ben Hagarty:

– Creative journey – Personal growth & challenges – The inspiration from artists he loves and has worked with he is obtained – Building a creative community (Black With No Cream) – His family upbringing and Iowa roots It was awesome having Ben Hagarty on the podcast as a fellow Iowan, dreamer, and creator. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did making it.
