New TV Series, The Bench : If a stranger stopped you late at night, what would you do?
Filmed across 7 evenings, writer & creator CK Goldiing sits on an anonymous bench in Sheffield, UK. It was often 11pm or later.
Each night, he asked passing strangers a different question – inviting them to join him on the bench to explore their answers.
During the series, Goldiing is of course occasionally ignored by passing people – seemingly unnerved by his sudden but friendly invite to answer questions like, “if you were offered a pill that would make you the most famous person in the world, would you take it?”. But, the number of people willing to stop and engage with his topics might surprise you.
Series 1 of ‘THE BENCH’ is out now
An experienced producer of unscripted videos, Goldiing’s work has been profiled by BBC, Metro, Huffington Post, Red Bull & Evening Standard – with his 2018 debut short film 61 HUGS taking him to San Diego for its US premiere.
