Our Producers. Pinball Studios is a

two-headed beast. It's better than one.

 
Ashley Horner

Ashley misspent the early 90’s playing guitar with indie art rockers PALE SAINTS & EDSEL AUCTIONEER. Film school beckoned in Newcastle and Toronto, where he made his first shorts and spent hard time cutting celluloid.

Ashley’s last feature film BRILLIANTLOVE (aka THE ORGASM DIARIES) screened at Tribeca in 2010, was released internationally by IFC in the US and SODA PICTURES in the UK. The Sundance Channel has taken rights to the Rest of the World and to date the film has grossed over double its production budget in the US alone. Described by festival programmer Roya Rastegar as “a gorgeous and dangerous marinade of passion, art, and ambition that languorously intoxicates the senses”. Its explicit content divided the critics and and audiences alike, but everyone HAD to SEE IT!

 

Ashley is a member of ACE, EAVE, TAPS and the European Film Academy.
