Director Biography - Beth Ashby

Born to the inexorably flat landscape of the Midwest, Beth Ashby has learned through years in the arts to dig for the extraordinary substratum lying just beneath the outer layer of the ordinary. She has so far enjoyed a varied career with show running, costume design, corsetry, an awkward stint on reality television, production design, puppetry, and of course screenwriting and filmmaking. Her scripts have won awards in both regional and national competitions, and her work has screened at festivals in two countries. Her mastery is one of creating moments, made vividly alive by the collaboration of the energizing minds she is privileged to work with.
