Episode 210 – David Ash (Living Two Lives in the Twin Cities)
David Ash lives a double life. The 48-year-old treasury director for Ecolab moonlights as a filmmaker. His latest film, Twin Citites, a film about a troubled marriage, a very pregnant wife struggling with writer’s block and a book that’s due, a depressed husband haunted by something in his past who quits his job and then is diagnosed with terminal cancer, premiered in Oct, 2017.
In this episode David & I chat about making a film while working a day job (which is a common theme on this show), what happens when someone at work brings it up, distributing films in ever crowded market place, and tons more.
