Black​ ​Speculative​ ​Fiction,Horror​ ​and​ ​Sci-Fi​ ​represent​ ​a​ ​vastly​ ​under​ ​served​ ​segment​ ​in​ ​cinema that​ ​is​ ​begging​ ​to​ ​be​ ​explored.​ ​African​ ​Americans​ ​fully​ ​support​ ​these​ ​genres​ ​but​ ​constantly complaining​ ​about​ ​the​ ​lack​ ​of​ ​quality​ ​representation.

With​ ​the​ ​runaway​ ​success​ ​of​ ​Jordan​ ​Peele’s​ ​“Get​ ​Out”​ ​the​ ​world​ ​saw​ ​that​ ​there​ ​is​ ​a​ ​huge market​ ​for​ ​Black​ ​genre​ ​films.​ ​And​ ​with​ ​the​ ​massive​ ​anticipation​ ​of​ ​marvels​ ​“Black​ ​Panther”, Paradigm​ ​Grey​ ​is​ ​poised​ ​to​ ​be​ ​a​ ​groundbreaking​ ​new​ ​chapter​ ​in​ ​Black​ ​Cinema.​

Chicago​ ​based​ ​filmmaker​ ​Christopher​ ​Adams​ ​of​ ​Impakt​ ​Studio,​ ​assembled​ ​a​ ​like​ ​minded​ ​team of​ ​extremely​ ​talented​ ​fellow​ ​Filmmakers​ ​and​ ​Industry​ ​Professionals​ ​to​ ​create​ ​the​ ​beginning​ ​of several​ ​volumes​ ​of​ ​genre​ ​defying​ ​feature​ ​length​ ​films​ ​and​ ​television​ ​projects,​ ​with​ ​a​ ​focus​ ​on spotlighting​ ​the​ ​African​ ​Diaspora​ ​in​ ​roles​ ​you​ ​don’t​ ​typically​ ​see​ ​them​ ​in.

There​ ​are​ ​whispers​ ​and​ ​murmurs​ ​from​ ​the​ ​Black​ ​TV​ ​and​ ​Film​ ​Industry​ ​in​ ​Chicago,​ ​that​ ​no​ ​one wants​ ​to​ ​work​ ​together​ ​to​ ​build​ ​a​ ​stronger​ ​platform​ ​coming​ ​out​ ​of​ ​Chicago.​ ​​ ​Paradigm​ ​Grey negates​ ​that.​ ​​ ​Six​ ​Chicago​ ​Based​ ​Black​ ​Production​ ​Companies​ ​IMPAKT​ ​STUDIO​ ​,SEI STUDIOS,​ ​​ ​BRIGHTSEED​ ​COLLAB,​ ​FILM​ ​BARREL​ ​STUDIOS,​ ​CASSANDRA​ ​BELL​ ​STUDIOS, 21H2,​ ​​ ​along​ ​with​ ​outstanding​ ​Chicago​ ​based​ ​talent,​ ​have​ ​worked​ ​countless​ ​hours​ ​in​ ​production to​ ​develop​ ​content​ ​from​ ​various​ ​aspects​ ​of​ ​the​ ​genre​ ​to​ ​include:​ ​post​ ​apocalyptic,​ ​sci-fi​ ​futuristic, supernatural​ ​horror,​ ​political​ ​horror,​ ​social​ ​thriller.

Chris​ ​Adams​ ​states,​ ​“The​ ​greatest​ ​thing​ ​to​ ​come​ ​out​ ​of​ ​this​ ​process​ ​was​ ​the​ ​creative​ ​problem solving​ ​that​ ​came​ ​from​ ​the​ ​open​ ​sharing​ ​of​ ​knowledge​ ​on​ ​a​ ​myriad​ ​of​ ​tasks​ ​that​ ​enabled​ ​us​ ​to overcome​ ​the​ ​budgetary​ ​constraints​ ​of​ ​such​ ​diverse​ ​and​ ​dynamic​ ​visions,​ ​allowing​ ​this​ ​dynamic team​ ​of​ ​innovative​ ​creators​ ​to​ ​successfully​ ​collaborate​ ​and​ ​explore​ ​the​ ​possibilities.​ ​​ ​Welcome To​ ​The​ ​Shift.
