CO-FOUNDER & MANAGING DIRECTOR
Ben Link has been on film sets all of his life, as his mother was an actress mother and father a producer/director. He first job was at Riverside Studios, following that he worked as a runner (to this day still claims it was the best job he ever had) at Limelight which led to feature films (Sleepy Hollow, Event Horizon) and commercials. He has won innumerable Cannes Lions/British Arrows/D&AD awards and worked with some of the most highly acclaimed industry directors. Everyone who has ever worked with Ben knows how his energy is contagious. Some commercial career highlights include producing John Lewis, The Long Wait and the banned Cadbury Flake ad. He founded Missing Link Films with his wife in 2017 and he is committed to finding and supporting diverse British talent.
CO-FOUNDER & EXECUTIVE PRODUCER
Heather Link’s love of production comes from her years in global marketing at HSBC, CNN and consulting for luxury brands. Moving around the US, Canada and UK as a child, a nomadic production lifestyle was always on the cards.
A passion for storytelling, people and culture is at the heart of everything she does. She worked at HSBC for 10 years and was part of the team responsible for building the brand, including infamous global airport campaigns and countless TV commercials. In this role it really hit home that female directors were under-represented, and with only 5%-8% of commercials in the UK directed by women, it was one of the key reasons that she co-founded Missing Link Films with her husband Ben. She has been a judge at the British Arrows and the Young Directors Awards in Cannes Lions.
