Not Currently Funding |Offering: Reg CF
Yes, we did! 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 those who missed out the first time. While we did successfully raise $152,848, that was done in such a brief period of time and under different rules and circumstances that now govern crowdfunding. With momentum increasing, and even while we are seeking equity investment from private sources, we want to partner with you.
It's important to remember that THE SHIFT is science fiction, and we're using that genre to express faith, just as C.S. Lewis used fantasy fiction to do the same with the Narnia Chronicles.
THE SHIFT is both a science fiction film and a faith-based film. Granted, those two genres don't usually cross over, but why not? It's exciting to be making something new. Call it a "theo-fiction," if you will.
Our hope and plan is to begin shooting in Fall 2021. Movies are typically released between 12-18 months after production begins.
Thankfully, with vaccinations going out, we’re looking at a potentially safer and easier movie making environment in the near future. Thankfully, we have Dallas Jenkins on board as Executive Producer and he's dealt with many of these issues firsthand with the production of Season 2 of THE CHOSEN. We also conducted our sales projections with an international distributor under current COVID-19 conditions and they indicated a favorable return. We can likely look forward to even more favorable market conditions at the time of the film’s release.
That's right! Dallas, the Creator of THE CHOSEN, is on our team as Executive Producer and we couldn't be more lucky to have him.
The goal for the “The Shift” is to release it theatrically both in the United States and Internationally, and then make it available with Angel Studios and other streaming platforms. The short film that shows you what the feature film will be like is already available free on Facebook and the Angel Studios website.
Angel Studios helps creators fund shows and movies, and distribute them, and is the studio platform responsible for bringing you The Chosen, Dry Bar Comedy, The Tuttle Twins, and more.
Not at all. As in the short film, THE SHIFT feature will tackle its themes in an understated, non-preachy way that will help it appeal to not only the faith-based crowd, but also to anyone who is just looking for a good genre story. In fact, as we took the short film around to secular film festivals, we were struck by how many people enjoyed it and celebrated it who said they didn’t have any particular faith, or that they had left theirs behind. We look forward to the feature film and its message of hope being seen by many more people than just "the choir."
The simple answer is: yes. Not only are most of the core creative team Christians themselves, but THE SHIFT is also very much about the specific struggle believers have to keep on believing that Christ is right there beside them even when times are tough and the evidences are seemingly few.
No. Although no law limits the minimum amount of money you can invest as an individual, transaction costs related to the purchase of the stock and ongoing maintenance make accepting investments less than $100 unreasonable. In fact, most Regulation CF offerings will typically limit investments at $1,000. But we wanted to ensure that anybody who wanted to invest in The Shift would have the opportunity regardless of how large, or small, their investment was, so the minimum is $100.
You may invest as many times as you would like until you reach your investment limit under Reg CF.
As part of Regulation CF, we are required to file annual reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We will also send out regular investor updates via email to let you know all the latest news of the company.
We will be selling up to 4,847,152 preferred units in this offering.
Yes. As an owner of The Shift, you would be entitled to your share of profits as outlined in the operating agreement. The management of The Shift determines when this distribution can be made.
Films generate income from distribution, whether it’s from customers of streaming sites, theatrical ticket sales, DVD rentals and sales, fees from TV stations, and international distributors purchasing the rights. The goal is for The Shift to be distributed in the following ways: In North America, through VidAngel’s streaming service, theatrically, and then down the road potentially on DVD and television; and overseas in all countries through multiple channels.
No. The Shift, LLC is a legal entity that is a separate and distinct company from Angel Studios, Inc. Investments made are in The Shift, LLC, not Angel Studios, Inc.
No. Investment in early-stage companies/films is extremely risky, and you should consult with your independent financial advisor before making a decision on whether you want to invest. In any case, you should never invest more than you could afford to lose!
Unlike securities purchased on a stock market, such as the NYSE or Nasdaq, there is no public market for units in The Shift. Therefore, it is highly unlikely you will be able to SELL your investment. However, you may receive distributions of cash from The Shift if The Shift generates cash flow at a level where management determines to make a distribution – rather than reinvesting in the series. NOTE: management will not receive any profit distributions related to their ownership in The Shift until at least 120% of your investment has been distributed to you.
Investments will be on a first come, first serve basis. We cannot guarantee that there will be opportunities to purchase additional units in the future.
We don't see that happening, but in the event that it does, all the money invested will be returned to the investors.
Yes, we are happy to accept ACH transactions.
No, not at this time.
