NEW YORK, USA // Ashley Benton has worked in production & post-production for over six years in Los Angeles, California. Her career took off at Barking Owl, a music and sound company which she joined in 2015. She has since established herself as Executive Creative Producer, relocating to New York City in 2021 to open Barking Owl’s first satellite location as the company expands. In addition to having several Super Bowl ads under her belt, Ashley has been at the helm of Barking Owl’s most notable, socially conscious, and culturally impactful projects, such as LFG, a documentary for the USWS lawsuit for equal pay, Lululemon’s “Selfish Giant” ad which looks at the human experience in solitude and repetition, as well as “Corazón,” a film spreading awareness for organ donation and Barking Owl’s first full-length feature.
Outside of the studio, Ashley has partnered with the Shafranski Art Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to enriching underfunded public school art programs by providing supplies, cultivating skills, and facilitating creative experiences for students. Prior to joining the Barking Owl team, Ashley worked in movies and digital production where she gained her early production experience, after graduating from UCLA.
