he Fandom is a collaboration between Director/DP Ash Coyote and Director/Editor Ash the Eagle. Our goal going into this project was to tell the story of our community through the voices of the artists and creators that help us to really thrive. Each episode focuses on different topics within the fandom itself.

Full feature Kickstarter
The Fandom is a documentary series that is focused on giving you a real life look into the furry community as told by the artists and creators who have helped build it to where it is today. We have already completed part one of the documentary and will be releasing it here shortly as web series. This kickstarter is to fund part two which will be released as a feature film!
For this documentary, we would like to take an in-depth look at the early history of the fandom and really explore our origins as the first internet subculture. We will focus on the individuals who helped to start our first conventions, meetups and facilitate artistic expression. Then, we will examine where we are headed as a community today. As furries ourselves we would like to show the world what our community is really about!
