First and foremost, I have to say that I am fortunate this remarkable career allows me to collaborate with talented colleagues on a variety of fascinating projects. I have won a Clio a Telly and numerous Addy awards as a producer of National TV commercial campaigns. My client list includes major advertising agencies, Coco-Cola, Walt Disney Studios, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures Studios, Payless, Burger King, CDC, Western Union, Continental Airlines, and Proctor & Gamble. In addition I have produced long form work for The History Channel ®, National Geographic Channel, The Walt Disney Studios, Paramount Pictures, and PBS.
I'm a member of the Producers Guild of America and the International Advanced Imaging Society. I founded 1080, Inc., a production and post, TV and film company which employed more than 100 editors, animators, cameramen, and artists with facilities operating in San Antonio and Austin Texas. I have a BA in TV Film & Journalism from Trinity University.

"Ken Ashe has produced projects for me ranging from music videos for ABC, MTV, Paramount Pictures, Disney, and MCA Records, to network TV specials for NBC, HBO, Showtime and FOX. In addition, he has managed original production and post-production for our clients at Direct TV, 20th Television, Hollywood Pictures, Touchstone Pictures, CBS, and Sony. Ken brings a unique blend of talents to every project he produces. It starts with his understanding of all aspects of the production process, and then he adds value to everything that goes on-screen by making sure that both time and money are spent in the right places. His depth of experience, his "check-your-ego at the door" attitude, and his gift for finding rising talent set him apart from the vast majority of producers I've encountered in this business. He knows how to get what you want on the screen and not blow the budget."

When you put a project in his hands, you can rest assured that everything will go smoothly and efficiently, no matter how complicated. The assignment will always come in on time, on budget, and looking as good or better than you expected. For over a dozen years, I counted on Ken and his people to make our ad agency look good in the eyes of national and global clients such as Coca-Cola, Burger King, Bud Light to name a few. The big plus is that Ken is easy to work with, always available and willing to do whatever it takes to deliver a first-class job."
