ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Sola, is about the adventures of a young girl who discovers she's a magician in a world where it's not safe to be one.

On her quest to find the truth, she is tracked down by magician hunters. Sola has to learn to use her magic or she won't survive this dangerous and deadly world.

THE BACKGROUND

  • Crowdfunding allows us creative control.

What is the plan once 100% funding is received?
