The Impact Factor Movie – Feature Narrative Film
Ambition drives a rising young Philadelphia political operative to disgrace and she finds herself suddenly powerless to help when a rebellious girl on parole pleads for help and shows her what real impact is.
This is the story of Destiny Drifting and how small actions change the world.
This feature narrative film is a drama set in Philadelphia and shows the connections and relationships between a diverse cast of characters who live and work within five miles of Philadelphia City Hall.
It’s the story of the power and the yearning to be significant as seen in the elite of Philadelphia politics and a young girl living in the the despair of the Badlands of Philadelphia in the most violent and crime ridden neighborhood in the city.
It’s the story of how ambition drives a rising young Philadelphia political operative to disgrace and how she finds herself suddenly powerless to help when a rebellious girl on parole pleads for help and shows her what real impact is.
This is the story of how small actions change the world.
If you remember the movie “Crash” you will get a sense of how the city becomes a character in the movie as we travel from the halls of the Mayor’s office to the hopelessness of the Badlands.
This is a movie about seeing no options to be significant when the truth is we all have an impact on thousands of people whether we want to or not just by existing.
It’s about making choices to see the possibilities that exist when we expand our vision. It’s about how one girl who seems to have no options can impact the world and how that can spread to millions.
The Impact Factor Movie – Feature Length Documentary Film
In this life-changing feature-length documentary, you will discover the secrets that enable powerful artists, scientists, authors, speakers, politicians, and ordinary people from all walks of life to impact the future of millions.
Discover the key insights that enable you to use art, science and technology to create your own powerful blueprint for creating significant impact, as you capture the world’s attention, motivate millions of people to champion your ideas and make a real difference in a very noisy world.
This powerful, persuasive and practical movie on creating powerful impact is loaded with ideas, insights and strategies shared by some of the most influential people in the world and distilled into crystal clear nuggets of wisdom that you can use this instant. Your impact will explode.
It’s a universal truth.
People want to have an impact on the world they live in and make a difference through their life.
But, it’s not easy to be noticed in a world that is full of noise – unless you have a simple, proven blueprint that has been proven to work for anyone.
Think of a cross between Gladwell’s “The Tipping Point” and Cialdini’s “Influence.”
The Impact Factor reveals the key strategies used by some of the most influential people in the world as they create measurable and undeniable impact on millions of people.
And… it’s simple.
The stories of these influential people – and the stories of less visible individuals, with equal impact – clearly and simply illustrate vital strategies that allow everyday people get their ideas noticed, motivate millions of people, change lives and make a real difference.
And… it’s backed up with science, common-sense and practical examples.
My goal with The Impact Factor is to have a huge impact.
People’s lives can be changed with a single movie.
Each person whose life is changed causes exponential impact.
And… we can make a difference.
Many best-selling business books, including The Tipping Point, Blink, The Wisdom of Crowds, and Freakonomics attract broad interest through the use of stories and examples than anyone can relate to.
These stories are drawn from widely divergent sources, often completely outside of the realm of business, backed with research.
Malcolm Gladwell uses the spread of syphilis in Baltimore to illustrate key points about the way that key individuals affect the spread of products in an “epidemic” of activity.
There are documentaries available on publicity, persuasion, influence, sales, social networks and business systems.
There is no feature length documentary that effectively and simply ties all of those factors together using simple stories and research to give everyday people the blueprint that they need to get noticed, build momentum and make a difference.
In the same way that Malcolm Gladwell, made social networks interesting, profitable and available to a broader audience this movie will make creating impact accessible to anyone that wants to be noticed.
In the same way that Robert Cialdini helped people see simple actions that can have exponential results in our ability to influence people, The Impact Factor will give people step-by-step actions that they can take to make a difference.
