A paradigm shift is a different way of looking at things.
Things: the world, creativity, mind, body—
To see is to peer hard into every scene and locale you pass, to feel it out, for you will find what is…and most importantly…what isn’t there.
For instance, a churchyard. Night. Calm and serene—secure, as one would expect a sacred vessel to be. A statue of the Virgin Mary greets from afar in the garden, basking in the glow of a divine white flood light. She is surrounded by greenery, benches and the architecture that honors Her being. On a bench nearby is a wanderlust teenager who just experienced love for the first time and you can see their racing heart pulse in their eyes. Two lovers make out, using the nearest sanctuary to fall against the wall open their shirts and perform the acts of their lust. But there are corners, nooks and crannies. Nearby, a decaying tree’s thick branch gnarls across the church facade and casts a shadow across a stained glass window. The window is that of a saint knelt in prayer. His eyes are aimed at the looming branch because perched atop it, also knelt on its haunches is a scaly, red-eyed yellow-bellied demon wringing its hands in anticipation while other variants of its brethren lurk about waiting to debauch passerby with their silver tongues and glistening fangs. An exorcism is being performed on the sidewalk, blood gurgling from the mouth as the demon fluids engorge them with pleasure and pain in equal, unbearable measures. And then, in the pale blue moonlight, you stand, realizing the quiet is actually silence, and before you coalesce all the moods of the holy, the damned and the in-between. Look. Feel. Know. What is and what isn’t.
A different way of looking at things is only the start. Where the status quo ends is where our art begins.
Paradigm Shift Productions is a multimedia venture who specializes in genre fare linking a cherished past of tropes, tricks and lore to an exciting, innovative future of challenges, entertainment and stimulation.
We peer into the unnerving realities and fantasies that shape our everyday experiences and fuse them with unique storytelling to reach for an emotional core of understanding. We honor what has come before, for what is not to love? We live in suspense of the creaks that emanate from the insane beings in The Old Dark House, the vampires teasing themselves towards our necks, our inner Boyyyyy shuddering at the voice of The Tall Man and jolting every damn time Kurt Russell tests that second to last blood sample. Our work is a fusion of the two experiences to reach the basest human feelings and while, have a conversation with you.
We invite you on our journey where imagination is limitless and bountiful.
Are you ready?
Are you scared?
Are you aroused?
Time to play.
