Ashley Pacini began being interested in film at the age of 16 when her family moved to Rome, Italy. Along with her twin sister she found the local Blockbuster only a few blocks away from their house. Through film they would nostalgically travel to the land they had come from. When she found that BYU had a film program, she didn’t hesitate in finding out more information. She found film magical and the passion that filmmakers displayed was inspiring. After graduating from BYU, she worked as a Producer Assistant for the Church’s Audiovisual department. While working there she applied to grad school and is currently working on an MA in Cinema Studies at NYU. She also works for a business management firm with clients in the entertainment industry.
Currently, Jed resides in New York City with his wife Kate. He is working on an MFA at Columbia University, with an emphasis in film directing and screenwriting.
