The Mindshifter follows hypnotist Marshal Manlove on stage, behind the scenes, and chronicles some mysterious occurrences.
For many, many years, Marshal Manlove has helped people and entertained people using hypnosis.

Live comedy stage shows and group hypnotherapy seminars comprise the bulk of what he does.
We work with Marshal on a couple of other projects and have had the chance to see some amazing things while he wasn't working in his traditional role as a hypnotist. On a podcast we produce we have been able to capture some of this on video.
Our project idea is one which will feature more of what you see in this video as well as highlights from stage shows Marshal does around the country. These will include all sorts of interesting, mysteriously, hysterical, and sometimes unsettling scenes. We will do interviews with show volunteers, people who benefit from hypnotherapy and their progress, and take an in-depth look at hypnosis in general - the methods and the myths with The Mindshifter himself.
This project is one for which we need funds to professionally produce this show. Our funding goal is truly a tenth of what we will need to make this happen but we can get up and running with what we asked.
There is a possibility that our project will be officially pitched to at least one network. That interest created our desire to work to make this a regular and viable project that can live on even if it never makes it that far.
We have enough equipment to use to create our project. This is labor intensive and we believe worthy of your support. Some of what you will see will make you gasp, make you laugh, and make you wonder.
We will over deliver on our promises to our backers if you help us reach our goal and beyond.
Risks and challenges
The risks are that we create something that people don't want to watch. With more and more things to see, hear, and do something like this can easily get lost like a proverbial needle in a haystack.
We know that the subject is a niche subject. Its not music...its not stand-up comedy, etc.
The challenge is strictly financial, though. There are barriers that can only be overcome by the accumulation of backer funds. There has to be a marketing campaign and that takes money.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
