About Us

Founded by Robert Butler III, Burning Ashes Productions LLC is an independent short film and media production company that amplifies diverse voices in genre-based storytelling.


Robert Butler III is a filmmaker born, raised, and based in Compton, CA. Initially, Robert’s career path veered towards engineering, as he excelled in prestige STEM-oriented magnet middle and high schools. But his love for cinema led him to graduate from the USC School of Cinematic Arts in 2019 - the same school his inspiration John Singleton attended.


Robert has worked as a producer, camera operator, and editor for various online video platforms. Still building his directorial body of work, Robert recently co-directed “Time Stamp,” which was selected for 12 festivals and won the Miami Sci-Fi Film Festival for “Best Director.”

Currently, Burning Ashes has 2 projects in post-production, as well as a new original short in active development.
