An overview of the process of the proposal, attempt at production, re-proposal, and ultimate result of the live-action feature film, Sleep Shift. The goal of Sleep Shift on the technical level is to write a feature-length script, raise funds, and produce and finish the film. The aesthetic purpose of Sleep Shift is to evoke a visceral response from the audience as they watch a murder mystery unfold. Included are the original proposal and re-proposal, sample budgets, sample business plans, a finder's agreement, a letter of intent from a production company, storyboards, trailer stills, and the script.
