Ash's Homecoming is a dramatic parody fan film set in the magical world that we all know and love! Join us on our epic quest to tell an exciting new story that gives the classic character a chance to finally grow up!
Synopsis: "Twenty years after leaving on his journey, Ash returns home after the passing of his old mentor. Little does he know that an old nemesis has been plotting his revenge. Will Ash be able to overcome his fears in order to save those he loves?"
We all face fear, both from the past and from the future. We may spend our lives running away from our inner demons, but eventually we must face them head on in order to be there for those we love. This is the central theme on our film, one which is emotionally compelling for audiences of all ages.

Risks and challenges
Building these large productions on a small-scale budget is a monumental undertaking. Over the past 4 years of filmmaking, our team has overcome an extraordinary range of challenges, from finding dozens of locations to creating hundreds of visual effects. And despite various setbacks along the way, we have proven that we can deliver.
But our success has always come down to the passion and contributions of every member of our team. We couldn't do it without them and have kept every single promise that we've ever made. And if you decide to join us on our quest, we promise that our courage will pull us through!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
