SHIFT written by Vincent Shiao
A scientist makes a major breakthrough in quantum computing, only to find that he is the subject of a much larger experiment… SHIFT is a science fiction thriller that combines cutting edge technology with the search for what it means to be alive.
When VINCENT SHIAO joined LIFT’s Screenwriters Circle three and a half years ago, he had never heard the terms “story structure,” “character arc,” or “plot point.” He has now heard of these things.
