About Ascension Stories

Ascension Stories is a collaboration focused on story-based content, entertainment, and building a strong community of like-minded people. We love what we do and we want to do more of it, and that’s where you come in!

How We Tell Stories
Streaming
The focus of our stream is to create a positive, fun environment where we can connect in a meaningful way to you, our community and audience. Streaming is the premiere method of daily content, connections, and entertainment, so embracing streaming has been pivotal for us as the entertainment industry progresses in its evolution.
Our current stream shows:
  • Creative Content (video/film editing, writing)
  • Variety Gaming
  • D&D every week
  • Community game nights

D&D

Dungeons and Dragons, in our opinion, is the most collaborative form of active storytelling. Each week we both create and experience a story together, and we share that experience with our community. We play two long-term homebrew campaigns as well as running various one-shots.

Filmmaking
Matt has been making movies for eleven years and while his heart is in storytelling as a general category, his training has been focused on motion pictures. He released his directorial debut, Taking Back the Future, in February of 2018, and there are more films on the horizon! Film work happens behind the scenes, but when the final product is done our supporters get first dibs to celebrate the project before it launches.

Matt’s IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm7479460/

Book Writing
This one was unexpected. A story Matt wrote that originally started as a feature film was turned into the form of a novel through a partnership with a ghost writer. Matt is now rewriting the book to refine the tone, character progression, and truly bring out the heart of the story to the audience. This is a long-haul project that Matt works on both on and off stream.

Where does the money go?
Ascension Stories is a 3-part organism: Marketing and Film Studio - Original Content and Storytelling - Gaming and Community. The funds earned from the Marketing and Film side of the biz go toward paying the monthly cost of living, keeping the lights on, and the funds from Patreon supplement that. Once the base financial needs are covered, however, any extra is directly used to improve the quality of the other two and add to whatever current projects are going on. There could be short films being created, there could be a new game coming out that would be fun to play through together as a community, or a myriad of other scenarios that offer the incredible opportunity for our community to connect in a more powerful way. 

Thank you!
Whether you’re hanging out with us on Twitch, checking in on Twitter, chatting in Discord, or supporting us here on Patreon – we appreciate you! Your support allows us to keep going and working towards bigger and better things. We thank you so much for coming along on our adventures!

Goals
$54.32 of $1,000 per month
Sara works full time at Ascension Stories! At this point, combined with Twitch, we can sustainably stream a full-time schedule (50+hrs/week) without Sara needing other jobs for income to cover living expenses.
