His first feature film Holes in the Sky has now won 25 awards on the festival circuit beating out the long-standing Blair Witch Project as the most highly awarded found footage film of all time. The film is Hamilton’s attempt at translating his long-held fascination with the paranormal, specifically the alien abduction phenomena. Hamilton is also hard at work on his follow-up, a post-apocalyptic horror anthology he will begin shooting in April.

    Ash resides in Springfield, IL with his wife and son. Holes in the Sky: The Sedan Miller Story is available on all major streaming and VOD platforms including Amazon, Vudu, Plex, Tubi, Google, Youtube, Redbox, and more.
