A Letter from the CEO


To Our Potential Investors, 


First off, I want to personally thank you for taking the time to visit our page and for taking the time to learn more about our company. If you've watched the video, then you've already gotten a chance to learn a little bit about us and why we're so excited about Called Higher Studios.

The BIG QUESTION is this, "Why Should I Invest In This Company?" and that's a great question. Below you'll find some information on the space, potential market, and strategy but at the end of the day, you need to be passionate about Christ. Jesus taught through parables...stories that changed people's lives and that's ultimately what we're doing. Sure, we have business sense, models, and a deep desire to turn this company into something profitable and amazing, but at the end of the day I'm going to be called home at some point and I will not be on this earth... and the most important thing that I can personally do is to tell people about Christ and point them to him. If you want to share in that, then you should keep reading or just go hit the invest button now. 


Ash and I have had tremendous success in this business. To be successful you need three things. First, great projects and we know that we can find those...they are all around us...you might even have the perfect story for a movie. Second, the ability to create movies at a high level. You can watch our reel and see the movies we've worked on, they are tv and theater-quality no doubt and we'll only get better. Third, you need marketing, marketing, marketing. Ash has been the premier marketer for Christian films for a long time, so we've got that covered. By adding you to the mix, we can be unstoppable. If we can execute those three things flawlessly AND then add a passionate community of investors that can potentially share in the profits and reward, then I believe the sky is the limit! I can only imagine how this company will look five years from now! It's going to be exciting. 


Thanks for stopping by and I sincerely hope that you'll invest in Called Higher Studios, it's going to be an amazing ride. This is the best opportunity for you to own the largest piece of the pie...the ground floor and through StartEngine you have the opportunity right now to get in on the opportunity. 


Sincerely, 


Jason Brown

CEO of Called Higher Studios, Inc.

Notable faith based films

The world needs the gospel

As Christians, we are called to love people and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Currently, there is not enough quality Christian content being made, but there is no shortage of secular content for our children to watch. This content promotes principles that go against our core beliefs and together we can change that. There are faith-based movies and television shows that exist, but there is currently NO OPPORTUNITY for YOU to be a part of it. UNTIL NOW. There is a huge base of Christian content creators, fans, and investors, with exciting ideas, who want to PARTICIPATE in projects with people who believe what they believe...who hold the same passions and values as they do and who want the OPPORTUNITY to SHARE in potential PROFITS.

We are the first fan owned Christian Movie Studio 

New streaming services are popping up all over the place, Apple and Disney+ are just a few...and they are well-capitalized and need content. Called Higher Studios is giving millions of Christian fans the opportunity to serve by creating content that honors God’s values AND the opportunity to share in the business! We're giving you a voice in the TV and Movie industry. YOU own the company, therefore you own a piece of every project that we do! Together, we will leverage the power of community to make better faith-based movies, and together, we’ll make the company great. 

Strong foundation + early quick wins = momentum 

The company is in an early stage of development. We are beginning to source projects and put deals together...which means if you invest, you have the opportunity to weigh in on some of these decisions. We’ve laid the groundwork and cultivated many worthwhile relationships within this community. Ash Greyson, one of our co-founders, has worked on over 90 feature films and has helped in generating over $1 Billion Dollars in World Wide Gross Box Office Receipts for films that he has worked on [1]. If you want to reach the faith-based audience, he's your guy and now you can be his partner. 


When you take the team we've put together, our industry knowledge of crowd building, identifying potentially successful IP, cost-conscious production, and distribution and marketing expertise...you've got a recipe for success. Please take a look at the publications below that published our latest press release. All we need is the final ingredient, that's YOU. You are our strategic advantage, as a crowd and community, we can be UNSTOPPABLE.

Faith driven consumers spend around $2 TRILLION dollars annually...Yes Trillion with a "T"

While 71% of Americans self-identify as “Christian”, there is a rapidly emerging and economically powerful subset known as Faith Driven Consumers. These consumers constitute 17% of the American adult population, which is approximately 41 Million people. Along with producing faith-based movies, there is a broader market opportunity to serve this community with additional faith-based products such as merchandise, books, religious study materials, and more. The current Christian publishing market has been estimated at $1.2 Billion [2].

Our model is revolutionary, forward-thinking, and Christ-centered

Called Higher Studios is a professional movie studio. We will do exactly what our founders have done in the past, create high-quality feature films and television entertainment. The strategic advantage and opportunity is partnering with YOU, the fans. By creating a community of passionate Christian fans, we are closer to our consumers than any of our competitors. By creating a relationship with you, together we will be able to create films that you desire and want to see. After WE produce the films, together WE will distribute the film and use our collective VOICE to market and distribute our CREATION!

Create and distribute quality entertainment

The faith-based genre is one of the few genres where it is possible to create a film for under $2 Million dollars and have potential returns of 30X or higher. For example, the 2014 film “God’s Not Dead” had an estimated production budget of approximately $2,000,000 and grossed approximately $60,755,732 in the domestic box office theatrical release [3].


There is no doubt that the potential exists to create exponentially rewarding returns through faith-based films, but we also have the additional advantage of other non-traditional revenue streams because of how we structured YOUR company.



Other revenue streams include:


  • Marketing Services for other Christian Studios and Content Creators

  • The Ability to Grow Influencers & Brands

  • Company Branded Merchandise

  • Owned or Affiliated Merchandise or Brand Collaborations

  • Facebook, Instagram & YouTube Shows

We openly share our faith

Our mission statement is “To serve God by creating content that inspires, teaches, and introduces people to Christ, Christian principles, and a pathway to salvation.” That's how we're different, we believe that God created us for COMMUNITY and we are going to run our business that WAY. We're going to openly use our platform and our content to share the message of Jesus Christ, that's what we're here for. If you believe this way and share that vision then we hope you'll join us by investing. 

Our vision is to be a beacon of light

When we close our eyes, we see a full-scale studio located in Nashville TN, producing feature films, television shows, and social media content that honors and spreads the gospel of Jesus Christ. We see ourselves as a launching pad for innovative, young Christian content creators, giving them the support and infrastructure to thrive in their calling. 

A company built on family values

Jesus had a small core team that he trusted with his mission. Film production is very similar, we begin with a small group of people to keep costs down but when we move into physical production it is not uncommon to hire hundreds of people to work on a movie. If you've ever seen the credits after a feature film, then you understand how many people it actually takes to make a movie. It's very similar to construction, once we, as a company, develop the project then we have to hire all the contractors and trades to build the house. We have the experience, the relationships, and a track record of creating success in this industry...and we're going to do it by putting Christ first. Our community gives us an advantage, and we’re asking you to be a part of it! 

If you've made it this far, you're interested...here's a bonus.

Investing is about taking what we have and creating more, but to us, that doesn't just mean more money. Of course, we're going to develop projects that make business sense and have the greatest potential for a monetary ROI, but we also believe that Jesus commanded us to love and serve our neighbors. To help do that, we are giving investors and fans the opportunity to not only get a potential return on their investment, to have a voice in the movie industry, and a voice in culture...but when you become one of “The Called” you're going to feed hungry children, give an orphan a home, help veterans struggling with PTSD, and help children with genetic disorders and disabilities.

10% of our First Raise will be donated to the following charities:

* (10% of the first raise will be divided equally by 5 (five) and that portion will be donated to each charity) * 


Thank you for your time and please click in the "Invest Now" button if you would like to purchase stock in Called Higher Studios, Inc. and take advantage of this amazing opportunity.

A Few Hours Left....

Hi Everyone, 


Just wanted to send out one FINAL notice to all of the followers on the campaign. If you haven't joined the waitlist, there are a few hours left before the campaign closes tonight. 


To our investors, please see the below links where you can follow us on social media, join our facebook group, etc. Please do this, it helps us keep in contact with you and also strengthens our community. 


All the best,

Waitlist Only

3 months ago

Who could have imagined that this would be the final day of our StartEngine offering?


Today is bittersweet for a lot of reasons, first it marks the close to our first Regulation CF round where we have maxed out our available and allowable amount that we can raise under the Securities and Exchange Commission's rules for our offering....and while we are thrilled that God has allowed us to be in this position, it is bitter because we know that many of you did not get an opportunity to invest and to join our community through Ownership. 


We have had many messages asking us to extend the round or to allow people to still invest, and while this is technically not an option...there is One option that IS available to you. You can still join the Waitlist.


What does this mean....to join the waitlist? Here's a quick and easy summary of the process. When you join the waitlist, you submit an indication of interest.


  • If a company has reached their maximum funding goal (oversubscribed), you can submit an "indication of interest".
  • An indication of interest is similar to a reservation. It’s a non-binding commitment.
  • This is not an investment and does not guarantee a place in the offering. If your indication of interest is accepted, you will be notified to sign your binding agreement.
  • You will have only 24 hours to sign the approved indication of interest.
  • You can cancel your indication of interest at any time up until 48 hours before the target deadline. If you cancel your indication of interest, you will lose your place on the waitlist.
  • You will not become an investor in this offering unless your indication of interest is accepted and pushed off the waitlist and you sign your binding subscription agreement via email, within 24 hours of notification.


As you can see, the waitlist is a great opportunity to be accepted into the round, should potential spots open up in the round. From our understanding, many times this does happen and often times a significant portion of the waitlist gets moved to the investor list. Why could this potentially happen? This could happen for many reasons such as:


  • An investor entered the wrong payment information and has not corrected it in their dashboard. 
  • An investor missed a follow up action or task that they were required to do by StartEngine.com
  • An investor's payment was not received and/or cleared


There are many reasons that we feel it makes sense to join the waitlist, so we wanted to take a minute on the last day of the campaign to urge you, if you are following the campaign and have not invested, to take advantage of this final option on the last day of the campaign. 


To all of our investors, we appreciate you and look forward to serving you. 


Sincerely, 

Jason Brown

The Importance of....

3 months ago

Hi Everyone, 


I wanted to take just a minute and give you a quick update on the Importance of Spreading the Gospel for Christians. We are called to Go and tell all the nations of the "Good News" which is Jesus Christ, and for Christians this is the foundation of our beliefs. We believe that we can tell amazing, great stories that teach Good things...things like loving your neighbor, how to deal with adversity, what it means to have faith, and other important topics. I do not believe that it is our job to force our religion on anyone, our job is to live differently...to love people so much that others ask us where we get that kind of hope from and that opens the door for us to 1 Peter 3:15. 


Thank you to everyone who has supported us so far. I am so excited to see what the next year, 2 years, 5 years looks like and I can only imagine where we will be. To everyone from the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you, may God bless you, and my hope is that you and I know him more intimately every day.

Why We Exist....

3 months ago

To All The Followers Who Are Following This Campaign,


We know that we have accumulated a lot of people who are watching this campaign closely, but who for whatever reason have not invested. For that reason, we wanted to re-post this video to allow you to meet Jason Brown. He is one of the co-founders of Called Higher Studios and this is his story on WHY he felt led to create a company that not only "Tells" about Christ, but also "Does" what Christ tells us to do which is to take care of the least of these, to love your neighbor as yourself, and to love the Lord God with all your heart. We've been blessed to donate to wonderful charities like The Joseph School, Josiah's House, The Angel Foundation, ReBoot Combat Recovery, and others. We invite you to watch the video below and if you believe in our mission and our WHY, please join us by investing in Called Higher Studios. 



To our Investors - Thank you again for the unbelievable support! In our Final Days before the Round Closes...we ask for your support in sharing his campaign with all of your friends.

To All the Fans and Investors of Called Higher Studios,


Because of you, orphans in the Dominican Republic are going to get a chance to have a family, a mother and father, an education and a chance to better their lives...and more importantly they know that Jesus is the reason that every opportunity and volunteer there exists. On behalf of Called Higher Studios, this is what gets us excited. Yes, we're going to make some great entertainment and we hope and pray that people come to know Christ because of it, but these boys and girls will be impacted for generations and YOU did that...so be very proud of yourselves. From the bottom of my heart...Thank You.

Here is a special message from Donna Boone on behalf of Josiah's House.

To All the Fans and Investors of Called Higher Studios,

Thank you for allowing us to make a $10,000.00 donation to the Joseph School in Haiti. You can check out the video below, but because of you there are orphans who will have two meals per day and get an education that was previously unavailable to them. Congratulations on being the hands and feet of Jesus. It is our intention to spread the name of Jesus through film and television, but we have also made a commitment to feed and take care of the least of these…and you have been a huge part of that. Be very proud of your own generosity. Thank you & here is a special message from Jim Bryson, former Tennessee State Senator & the Founder of The Joseph School.

A Message of Hope...

3 months ago

2 Timothy 1:7 “For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love, and sound judgment”

 

It seems more than ever, today, people are worried, panicking, and have a higher level of uncertainty. We at Called Higher Studios just wanted to take a minute to point you back to Christ.

 

We, as believers and followers of Jesus Christ, can stand on his word….and his word teaches us the following:

 

  • Psalm 56:3 - When I am afraid, I will trust in You
  • Isaiah 41:10 – Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand
  • Deuteronomy 31:6 – Be strong and courageous; don’t be terrified or afraid of them. For it is the Lord you God who goes with you; He will not leave you or forsake you

 

The Word teaches us in Ecclesiastes that there is an occasion for everything, and a time for every activity under heaven. Our GOD is sovereign, and this time shall pass.

 

Fear not, the greatest of these is Love and his name is Jesus. Take comfort in knowing that the God of all creation loves you, knows you intimately, and desires for you to have peace beyond all understanding.


In Love, 


Jason Brown

Another day another milestone....

4 months ago

Over $700,000 committed to spreading the name of Jesus through media. We absolutely could not have done this without you....our FANS and INVESTORS. Most people think that the value of crowdfunding is the investment dollars, but to us that is NOT the case. The real value of crowdfunding is the COMMUNITY. It is the people, rallying behind a common cause and making a difference in their space. For us, it is the community that says we are going to spread the good news, we are going to make a difference in the world, we are going to be obedient and faithful in our mission to tell about Jesus through film, television, and other media forms. 


I just wanted to personally thank each and every one of you for the comments, the support, the investments. If you're following our progress, then you know that our goal, our mission is to max out our current Regulation CF round...so we know that with your help and your support that is possible. Thank you to each and every one of you for coming along side Called Higher Studios.


Sincerely, 

Jason Brown

If you've been watching you've seen....

5 months ago

It was 4 days ago that we made the announcement that we had reached 1300 investors, today that number has grown to 1521 as of the time of writing this update to be exact. We're not sure about you, but to us...that is unbelievably impressive. Not impressive for Called Higher Studios, but impressive that so many people have committed to lock arms and believe in a mission...in a cause that can create good in the world...to spread the Gospel through film and television.


We have raised to date over $428,000K dollars! What an amazing accomplishment and feeling to know that as a community, we are loading the war chest* to go and fight the good fight! But I want to be very clear, this is just the beginning. We have a vision to build the largest faith based community in the world around media, and that is no small task...but with prayer, hard work, and the efforts of our brothers and sisters in the community...we believe that it IS POSSIBLE!


Thank you to everyone who has invested so far, and to everyone watching the campaign we urge you to make your investment now. To everyone, if you are part of our community and you believe in our mission, then we're asking you to share it with your community. We've made it easy...you can just copy this link and tweet, post, or email to your friends and family. By spreading the word about Called Higher Studios, we get stronger everyday. Thank you.

PS - We thought the definition of war chest was fitting for this post. 

War Chest (noun)

a fund accumulated to finance a war

broadly a fund earmarked for a specific purpose, action, or campaign

According to the Hartford Institute for Religion Research*, 88% of US churches have less that 1000 members. We understand that we are not a church and could never replace the church, but we do believe that we are a community of Christ followers who have the power to do good in the world. Whether that is feeding hungry orphans in the Dominican Republic through Josiah's House or educating children in Haiti, who without the Joseph School, would have no other way to get two meals a day and an education for a better life. These are just two of the charities that this raise is going to support, so for every dollar that you invest 10% of our raise goes to actually making a difference in someone's life. 

So, 1300 people, investors... have said YES to our Calling...Called Higher Studios, and we're inviting you to make the decision to invest in our Mission as well. If you have not invested yet, you have time and we're asking you to join us in making a difference in the world for good...God knows we need it today more than ever. 

Thank you for all of our current investors for your support so far...

5 months ago

We cannot believe that only 6 days ago we were sending out an update about hitting 900 investors....Oh how times have changed! We can't say thank you enough to the community that has responded to our offering. As of today, we have over 1200 investors! Please keep us in your prayers as we continue to break barriers and build one of the largest faith based communities in tv and film production. 

If you are still following this campaign, then we invite you to make your investment today in Called Higher Studios and join the over 1200 other investors that believe that we can change the future of faith based film and television.

Hey, is this ok?

6 months ago

Is it ok that we haven't hit 1000 investors yet? We don't think so....so we're working really hard to break that barrier! We believe that it will send a powerful message to everyone watching once we break 1000 Investors, so if you're watching the campaign...then you can help us by joining over 900 investors who have already said YES to Called Higher Studios. 

Thank you to everyone who has invested so far. We're one of the top companies on StartEngine in terms of number of investors, so let's continue that trend!

If you were paying attention, on Friday we sent out an update letting our community know that we had reached 700 investors. Well, that was short lived.

So, with great excitement and honor, we're proud to announce that we have surpassed 800 investors who have said that they believe in our experience, our mission, and the opportunity of Called Higher Studios. Thank you everyone for your support and your belief in OUR company.

700 Said YES.....

6 months ago

700 Investors said YES to The Called. It seemed like just 4 days ago that we sent out an update saying we broke 600 investors...wait is was just 4 days ago! Congratulations to all of our investors and our followers. Our momentum is moving and we're not slowing down. 

Just so everyone is clear, it is our GOAL to max out our Regulation CF raise and the SEC sets that limit at $1,070,000.00 , so if you're following this campaign then we're asking you to go ahead and stand with the other 700 investors who said "YES!" to Called Higher Studios. 

We believe that we can disrupt and change the movie industry forever by allowing our fans and investors to shape the future of faith and family based entertainment by collectively creating projects and spreading the gospel! If you believe what we believe then say...

YES!


Thank you,

It's Unbelievable what GOD is doing...

7 months ago

As I sit here and ponder the thought that I'm listening to Kanye West's album about Jesus Christ, I have to laugh a little bit. Not because I think it's funny or that Kanye is disingenuous, I laugh because I find humor in how big God really is and how he chooses to show up. If you would have told me 5 years ago that Kanye would be preaching in prisons and that people would come to Google information about Jesus because of his album, I would have laughed at you, but God works in mysterious ways. And so I believe it is with us, no one really thought that God's studio, Called Higher Studios, could aggregate over a 100 investors so quickly...in only a few short weeks...and that we could begin to make an impact in people's lives. We have a vision to not only make unbelievable wonderful faith movies that show the glory of God, but we also have a vision to feed orphan children in his name, to cloth the poor and sick, to give education to children born, at no fault of their own, into situations of poverty and despair. We have the ability to help people in Jesus' name while also being given the opportunity to build a wonderful company. So, to all those who have invested...thank you from the bottom of my heart. To those following the campaign, thank you for following...but I'm asking you personally to join the mission, to join the vision, and to join the Called. God works in mysterious ways and I am so excited to see that Called Higher Studios looks like 5 years from now!
