WHAT ARE WE TRYING TO DO?

After driving 8500 kilometres across Canada interviewing over 50 people in 14 cities, 9 provinces in 6 weeks, we have begun The Social Shift, a documentary that tells the story of business for good.

The face of business is changing. The focus is shifting from profit driven to progress driven. Not to mention, people are seeking for meaningful work where they feel like they are contributing to a better world. It's happening across all generations, but particularly with millennials. We want to be part of something more. We want to create genuine and substantial impact in the work that we do, in the communities we live in, and in the brands we buy into.

Travel with us on a journey of discovery. Watch as we drive across a nation, floating on a geographic canvas of greed and inequity, kindness and generosity and, most of all, calls for change. We will discover the stories of interesting and engaged people adding a different type of value to the world. Value that is economic, yet improve people’s lives and betters society; that builds communities, protects the environment, supports local and employs people of all abilities; a type of value that lives up to the responsibilities that our world and future rely on.


Although the travelling has ended, we still need you. We need your help to make this dream become a reality -- check out the fundraising campaign above. Compelling and entertaining, this is a story of self discovery through finding values-based work. The Social Shift will show you that, although social purpose business isn’t the only way to change the world, it is certainly one way…

and it’s here to stay.

THE VIDEO KING 

Kevin Courtney | Toronto, Ontario

Founder & Videographer - KC Productions

Kevin’s passion for filmmaking led him to work with the StFX video team and the Athletic department during University, which led him to start KC Productions. Kevin believes that while an effective director needs to be able to tell as story and convey their ideas, it is of paramount importance to be a good listener and effective communicator. The success of any creative project relies not only on the skills of one person, but also on the talents of an entire group and their ability to collaborate. Kevin’s ability to do so is evident in his work, producing powerful short form high quality films for artists and brands alike.
