The Story

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.

Our Goals

  • 20-25 minute dramatic film, released online as a 3-part web series
  • Build a diverse cast to portray over a dozen classic characters
  • 7 days of shooting with hundreds of cast, crew, and artists
  • Craft beautiful cinematography, visual effects, and original music
  • Release the film in January 2018 for the 20th Anniversary of the franchise in the US!

Proven Success

After two successful large-scale films involving over 300 artists, we have proven that we can deliver a quality product with a great story. We've traveled all across the US to over a dozen film festivals and Comic-Cons and have brought home awards! Including:

  • Best Short Film, Long Beach Comic-Expo (2017)
  • Best of Fest, Long Beach Comic-Con (2016)
  • 1st Place Short Film, Stan Lee's Los Angeles Comic-Con (2016)
  • Audience Choice, CSU Media Arts Festival (2016)
  • Best Student Film, Long Beach Indie Film Festival (2014)
  • Audience Favorite, Irvine International Film Festival (2014)
  • 1st Place Narrative, CSU Media Arts Festival (2013)

Watch our two comedy films, Star Trek Wars and Steven Spielberg and the Return to Film School!

Diverse Characters

One of the hallmarks of the original television series was its array of colorful characters. As independent filmmakers, we believe that this is a great opportunity to showcase diversity in our cast. Please support us in our vision to bring a wide variety of talent to the big screen!

Like No Film Ever Was

Ash's Homecoming is a rare film that serves as both an homage to the cultural touchstone of a generation, as well as a piece of quality filmmaking. We make these films out of sheer passion because we believe that great stories can change people's lives for the better. We'd greatly appreciate your support and can't wait to show you all of the exciting things we have planned. Join us today on our epic quest to be the very best, like no film ever was!

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!
