Ben - who has previously run the now defunct Ben_J Productions -wanted to 'start afresh' in 2018. Speaking about the decision he said "I think as a teenage writer you are still learning so much and at a relatively fast pace, and things you've written even just a year ago, you look back at, and, well cringe sometimes! And no doubt, there will be things that I have yet to write that in two, three years I will look back at and do the same, but I think that's just life. You're constantly learning new things and able to do new things, but I do feel that, that process happens to its greatest degree during your teenage years, and so for that reason, I feel the need to now distance myself from the material I was producing at 15/16 when I first joined Lit 17 months ago under Ben_J Productions"
Why 'Unbroken Pictures?' Edit
Ben feels that his feeling that the original title wasn't working and then the confusion with the second, was all for a reason as he feels that he has now found the 'perfect' company title in Unbroken Pictures.
Speaking about the title Ben explained "I feel the word 'Unbroken' is very fitting for me actually. Without going too much into my personal life, I don't think it would be unfair to say that I've been through some tough patches already, and through not just the writing process, but the whole creative process - creating, building characters, stories and backstories etc - I have been 'Unbroken': it has been an outlet whereby I can express myself, as I already do with music, my other passion. I have really found a love for writing"
The company's choice of name was also party influenced by the title of American Singer Demi Lovato's third album, Unbroken, which was released back in 2011. Ben has spoken in more depth about the reasoning behind this in the past.
