CREATING COMMUNITY THROUGH FILM
PRODUCER / DIRECTOR
Do Good Films was started in 2016 by Ashley Bearden, a New York and Los Angeles based producer and director with over 15 years experience in film, television and digital media.
Ashley has made it a priority to seek out projects that tell stories about culture, community and identity through a nontraditional lens.
Her most recent projects include an entirely quarantine produced series for NBC's Think called Positive Spin. She spent three years producing series for Vox Media including Consider It and the award-winning Divided States of Women with Liz Plank. In 2017 she was proud to produce the Emmy-winning digital series - Return to Catalunya with Anthony Bourdain for CNN.
She has worked as the Head of Production for both The Onion and Lorne Michaels’ digital company, Above Average. Additionally, her production experience includes projects such as Lost in Translation, The Sopranos, Reading Rainbow and Killing Them Softly as well as multiple projects for HBO, Amazon, Sony Pictures and PBS.
Do Good Films was founded as a way to use her production skills to help nonprofits share their stories through film. In the last four years, it has produced films for small organizations with big missions in Ghana, Kenya, Vietnam, South Africa and Zambia.
