Not Currently Funding |Offering: Reg CF
Yes, we did! Our previous offerings were so successful over the short term, especially in the home stretch, that we've decided to open up another opportunity for those who missed out before.
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 plan is to begin shooting in January 2023. Movies are typically released between 12-18 months after production begins, but we are actually targeting an October 2023 release.
We will be operating under all necessary safety procedures. Thankfully, we have Dallas Jenkins on board as Executive Producer and he's dealt with many of these issues firsthand with the production of The Chosen.
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. We also have the former Producer of The Chosen as one of our Producers, Justin Tolley, former Chosen Associate Producer Justen Overlander as a Co-Producer, Chosen Composers Dan Haseltine and Matthew S. Nelson, Chosen Casting Director Beverly Holloway, and...we're gonna stop there. Suffice it to say, we greatly admire The Chosen and we steal from the best!
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 here, on Facebook, on the Angel Studios YouTube, on VidAngel, and on the Angel Studios app.
Angel Studios is our marketing and distribution partner, and is the studio platform responsible for bringing you The Chosen, Dry Bar Comedy, The Tuttle Twins, The Wingfeather Saga, and more.
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 evidence are seemingly few.
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."
We have! Liz Tabish (Mary Magdalene on The Chosen) has already joined the cast as Molly Garner, and we have many more actors cast we'll be announcing in the next few weeks and months.
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 $102 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 $102.
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 (which will be available on this page). 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 1,328,337 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.
Yes, but only for those investors investing larger amounts (due to the higher processing fee) of greater than $50,000.
Yes, you can now invest in The Shift from one of these entities. Just select that option when moving through the checkout process.
Our ability to offer our units to the public is possible due to recent legislation known as the Jobs Act. This same law limits the amount that investors can purchase based on your annual revenue and net worth. There is no limit, however, if you are an accredited investor. If you have additional questions regarding this limit, feel free to ask in our Q&A tool at the bottom of the main page of this offering.
Every country has its own securities laws. We are offering this Reg CF round under the laws of the US and so we know what we need to do to allow US citizens to invest and be compliant with those laws. We don't have the resources to be able to identify and comply with the securities laws in other jurisdictions, so we limit investments to US citizens.
Because you’re making an investment and not a donation. The escrow agent is subject to banking regulations when they hold your money, and ownership is tracked by social security number.
The final day to invest is October 19, 2022. However, it is possible we will receive our maximum number of investments prior to that date. If that happens, we could close early.
There is no subscription plan to buy securities and all purchases of our securities are a one time payment. Subscribers are simply other investors that have purchased the securities. A "subscription agreement" is a legal term for the contract between an investor (you) and the issuer (us), it details the offering of securities and explains your rights and responsibilities when deciding to purchase our securities.
