About The Shift

I'm Brock Heasley, the Writer and Director of The Shift, a short film about Kevin Garner, a frustrated man who encounters a mysterious stranger offering untold wealth and power—a stranger who turns out to be the devil himself. If there's one question everyone who watches The Shift asks, it's this: after Kevin makes his choice at the end, what happens next? And now, with your help, we have the chance to answer that question by turning The Shift into a feature length film to encourage people in their struggle to reject the dark and seek the light. I can't do it without you.

A Second Opportunity

Our previous offering was so successful over the short term, especially in the home stretch, that we've decided to open up a second opportunity for everyone who missed out the first time. Then, we were largely limited by how much we were allowed to raise, but the rules have changed and, as we have brought on board more and more industry professionals (see “The Team” below!), our understanding of the quality and potential of THE SHIFT has evolved.

We believe we can attract some truly great name actors that will give THE SHIFT a chance at the best possible return in the marketplace as a crossover hit with appeal to both faith and general audiences. With actors of that caliber come unions, and with unions come costs. The film is now budgeted at $6.4 million. It’s a modest sum by Hollywood standards, but with interest already strong from private equity investors, we believe it’s the smartest way forward.

That’s where you come in. If we can raise a significant portion of the budget through crowdfunding, that will put us in prime position to make up the difference with private investment. We can now raise up to $5 million through equity crowdfunding, but even if we are only able to raise our set minimum of $500,000, that will still give us the big boost we are looking.

More importantly, we want to partner with YOU because we know that you understand the soul of what this film is trying to be, and private investors aren’t necessarily going to get that. The best part about equity crowdfunding (this isn’t a Kickstarter—we’re inviting you to own a piece of the film) is how it allows us to work outside the system to make the type of movie that people want to exist because they know Hollywood is not going to make it. The more people we have in our corner, the more powerful the impact. Because this isn’t just a movie. It’s an opportunity to show the power of God in dark times. By working together with you, we believe this film can serve as a light to all who see it.

What is The Shift Feature Film About?

THE SHIFT is unabashedly a science fiction film. It is also unabashedly a faith-based film. It is a modern day, sci-fi re-telling of the story of Job.

What's striking about Job's story is that he was a person who already had faith and was then seemingly abandoned by God and severely tested. Job's test was to endure. It was to make the choice, every day, to still believe despite all hardship and evidence to the contrary. That’s a challenge every person of faith knows well.

This will be a film about choice. In this case, the choices made by Kevin Garner, a man who is approached by Satan himself and offered fame and wealth in exchange for doing the devil’s bidding. All of us, every day, either give into temptation or choose what is right instead. The world is set against us and circumstances fluctuate, but the same choice is always before us: faith in the long haul, or self-interest in the short term.

In the end, Job proved worthy of God's faith in him. The question is: can Kevin do the same?

How will we get The Shift to market?

Over the last several years, faith-based films have been firmly established as a large and thriving niche market, often braking into the box office top ten on their week of release. To cite a recent example, I Can Only Imagine (starring Dennis Quaid) opened with over $17 million receipts in its first week of release, eventually reaching a total of over $83 million. Faith-based films are in a growth period, but they can only keep growing if they continue to offer audiences something new.

Our plan is to seek a theatrical release for THE SHIFT feature film by reaching out to known, successful faith-based film distributors like PureFlix and Mission Pictures International, along with major distributors that are friendly to faith-based films, like Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions. We have already brought on board a skilled team of industry professionals with extensive experience in bringing films to market and the right contacts. We have also conducted a sales projection analysis and have every reason to believe that, even under COVID-19 conditions, the market will treat THE SHIFT well. While there is no guarantee of success, we believe there are many different avenues for exhibition that are open to us.

As both a sci-fi film and a faith-based film, THE SHIFT has a crossover appeal that can help it reach new people and new markets. We are also planning for distribution through VidAngel and other streaming platforms after the potential theatrical release.

What it means to invest in The Shift

As a purchaser of a preferred unit of stock in the film, if the film succeeds in the marketplace, you will receive up to 120% of your investment before the creators receive any of the profits. After you receive your 120%, any further profits will be distributed according to your ownership percentage. This isn’t a guarantee that you will receive a return, but only a deal that the founders won’t take a return until you have received 120% of your investment.

If for some reason we are not able to achieve our minimum funding goal for this round of crowdfunding, every dollar you have invested will be returned to you.

THE SHIFT is a chance to put something good into the world and to share a thought-provoking and challenging story of faith and struggle that can inspire and be appreciated by anyone. We hope you’ll join us in bringing this hopeful, important story to life.
