"Black Speculative Fiction, Horror and Sci-Fi represent a vastly underserved segment in cinema that is begging to be explored. African Americans fully support these genres but constantly complaining about the lack of quality representation. With the runaway success of Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” the world saw that there is a huge market for Black genre films. And with the massive anticipation of Marvel's “Black Panther”, Paradigm Grey is poised to be a groundbreaking new chapter in Black Cinema." - stated in the Paradigm Grey press-release.
Paradigm Grey is also a victory of collaboration and local production, so rarely seen these days in the film industry. Six Chicago-based Black Production Companies (IMPAKT STUDIO, SEI STUDIOS, BRIGHTSEED COLLAB, FILM BARREL STUDIOS, CASSANDRA BELL STUDIOS, 21H2), along with outstanding Chicago talent, have come together, pulling on shared resources and expertise. The Paradigm Grey features content from various genres: post apocalyptic, sci-fi futuristic, supernatural horror, political horror, social thriller to name a few.
