Ren is a new original independent fantasy series from producer and director Kate Madison, the creator of the hugely successful Lord of the Rings prequel Born of Hope which has had more than 29 million online views.
The aim for Ren is to build a successful new fantasy franchise for an international (online) audience. Kate has both the faithful fan base and the proven track record to make that happen.
The team behind Ren ran a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2013 with fans contributing more than £35,000 towards the project.
Filming is currently underway on Ren Season One, which will consist of 6 ten-minute episodes created especially for the web. The show will be screened online in 2015.
Ren will tell a serious story with amazing fights, epic scenery, a strong female lead, a splash of humour and fantastic characters we will all fall in love with.
When a young woman is possessed and her face branded by a powerful ancient spirit, she becomes feared by all who see her. Banished from her home and hunted by the powerful ruling order of the Kah’Nath, Ren refuses to accept her fate and journeys across the land to discover what she is and if there are others like her. Joined on her perilous quest by a small band of outcasts, led by the mysterious Hunter, she discovers that the truths she has been taught may all have been a lie.
