In 2015, Ace co-produced a horror feature film, Drifter (2017), which secured both North American and foreign distribution and will be released in theaters in 2017. He then produced an action film, Sleepless (2017), which will wrap post-production in August 2016. He recently finished co-producing his third film, FML (2016), where he worked with Point Break (2015) producer John Baldecchi.
Ace worked with Prodigium Pictures on several of his feature films, music videos and commercials.
