The IndieMacUser Team

Ben started out as a Technology blogger before branching out into writing about Film & TV. An obsessive fan of indie film & dark comedies you will probably find him waxing lyrical about the movies of Kevin Smith, The Coen Brothers, Robert Rodriguez or Quentin Tarantino. He also loves to discover & promote cult, low-budget indie gems that no-one has heard of. Favourite films include Clerks, Dogma, From Dusk Till Dawn, Pulp Fiction, Office Space, Shallow Grave & Blood Simple. An avid Apple user for over 15 years he also writes all the technology content for the site.
Benjamin is also the Host of ‘Roundup Reviews‘ – a Big Finish Audio news/reviews segment on Gallifrey Stands podcast.
Also a keen supporter of crowd-funded films, see some the projects he’s been involved with on IMDb.

Kenton Hall – Writer; Reviews.
Kenton is a writer, director and actor – a triple threat !!!! In 2015 he produced his first feature length film A Dozen Summers using his own teenage daughters as the stars. As a lifelong fan of Doctor Who his film also features sixth Doctor Colin Baker as the narrator.
Ian McArdell – Writer; Reviews.Ian is a Broadcast Engineer who works in the technical side of television transmission. When not doing that, he spends far too much of his time dreaming about spaceships, spies and monsters. Raised in the 1970s, on a rich diet of BBC drama and comedy; he enjoys a good audio play and steadfastly refuses to choose a favourite Doctor.
Some of Ian’s film favourites include, Grosse Pointe Blank, Coneheads, Dogma and Star Wars (Han shot first!). TV wise, it’s Doctor Who (obviously), Firefly, Survivors, The Prisoner, The Sopranos and Mad Men. Books – the works of Neil Gaiman, Douglas Adams and Paul Magrs.
