New Project "ADRIFT" Kickstarter

Burning Shade Productions is proud to present to you a new project, ADRIFT. We have completed 95% of the hard work on our own, we just need a little bit of help from you to help us bring it across the finish line so we're able to present the film to your screens. 

Information for the project is on the Kickstarter page at the link provided below or by clicking on this postings title above. Any donation helps, no matter how small. We thank you in advance for any and all contributions. If you're unable to donate in a monetary way and would still like to help us out, even sharing the Adrift Kickstarter page across your social media pages is a huge help. 

Thank you again from us all at Burning Shade Productions as well as the rest of the cast and crew of ADRIFT.
