about a+b

We are a content live action production primarily in broadcast, social, digital. We are 100% minority/female-owned (1/2 LGBTQ), and proudly represent a diverse roster of director talent including AA, Latin, and LGBTQ. We are committed to giving back 5% of our handling fee to the charity of our client's choice (projects at or above 18%), and we regularly schedule volunteering opportunities to give back to our Los Angeles community. We also have projects currently in development in film and television (series), if there is interest in placement or corporate sponsorship opportunities. We are primarily live action, but are happy to curate and oversee post, vfx, edit, graphics, music and audio if preferred, and with female or minority-owned vendors all the way down (we have these relationships already in place).

Ashley Hydrick + Beth Aranda-Hodzic

Ashley has earned a reputation for infusing collaborations with a spirit of fun and a deep sense of trust. She loves the people and problem solving involved in bringing ideas to audiences. Previously as Partner/EP of @Large Productions, Executive Producer of Arsenal FX and Producer at Jigsaw, Chrome, and Beast editorials, Ashley developed a deep understanding of all things productions and post and has a vast network of creative collaborators at her fingertips. In addition to these key roles, she was a member of the board of the AICE. All of these experiences inform her partner role in Above+Beyond Films where she heads all things sales and post, and is co-Managing Director . Make no mistake, behind her infectious optimism is the grit and determination to make it all happen, shiny with perfection. Ashley’s hidden talents include sound editing, audio engineering, and drumming. So if she’s marching to the beat of a different drummer, it is truly percussion of her own making -- precise and bold.
