Brock Heasley is a writer, filmmaker, and artist. From 1996-1998, Brock served as a Spanish-speaking missionary for the Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-Day Saints (but speaks terrible Spanish now; really, it’s embarrassing). After graduating from California State University Fresno with a degree in Graphic Design, Brock became a full-time Graphic Designer and, later, an Art Director. In 2006, he launched the online comic The SuperFogeys, published by Th3rd World Studios (SuperFogeys Vol. 1: Inaction Heroes due in stores July 7, 2020). In 2010, Brock co-created the online comic Monsterplex, which went on to win the DC Comics Zuda competition. In 2018, Brock’s YA Contemporary novel Paper Bag Mask (Pen Name Publishing) was published, reaching the top of Amazon’s Young Adult Fiction New Release chart in the first week. Brock’s debut memoir, The Other Side of Fear: A True Coming-of-Age Story of Murder, Forgiveness, and the Peace Only Faith Can Bring, is due Fall 2020 from Cedar Fort Publishing. His writing has appeared on the Independent Journal Review and at ForEveryMom.com.
In 2015, Brock left the Graphic Design world for the film world, working on and producing feature films for Tremendum Pictures, Blumhouse Productions, New Line Cinema, Warner Bros., and Lionsgate. In 2017 he released his directorial debut, The Shift, about an ordinary man receiving a job offer from the Devil himself. The short film earned him an Outstanding Filmmaker of the Year Award from the Hollywood Dreamz International Film Festival and is currently streaming at VidAngel.com. He is now working in partnership with VidAngel Studios and Stellar Lense Productions to turn The Shift into a feature film. His second short film, The Two Hundred Fifth, about a young college girl with a dark past that comes back to haunt her on the day she chooses to reveal all to her best friend, had its World Premiere at the renowned Fantasia International Film Festival in 2019.
Brock lives with his wife, three daughters, three dogs, and one cat in California. Brock didn’t want a third dog, but his girls made a pretty killer Power Point presentation and he didn’t want to look like a jerk.

Our stories share many similarities.
Thankfully at this moment I am employed. Not happily employed, but employed. The experience has really shaken me to the core at times but I am still here! I know I have opportunities and I am working harder than ever to improve.
Oddly enough, my experience has also changed me. Now I know how others must live to get by. I look beyond stereotypes and look for reasons that a person is having problems in their life. Are they financially strapped? Suffering from an illness? Do they have a criminal record? There are many reasons far beyond just being a lazy person who does not want to work. For someone who is employed, they do not see the hurdles that are in place to gain employment. It is difficult enough for candidates who are qualified. Imagine having no skills on a computer or not having the correct presentation in a job interview. Forget it!
I wish you the best of luck and Merry Christmas!
Interesting blog. I also ejoyed watching _The Shift_ pilot.
I have an unrelated side note that may come off as obnoxious, nit-picky, not important, or whatever other adjective you may think is fitting, but I decided I would share: The official spelling of the Church, when not in all caps as it is on the official website, is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (hyphenated with LOWER-case “d”).
The Community of Christ, before it changed its name, used the upper-case “D” without the hyphen, thus: The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The Church of Jesus Christ (LDS, formerly “Mormon”) has gone with the “Latter-day” spelling.
Simply FYI. Your choice of “Latter-Day” does NOT invalidate you, your blog, or your opinions, but you might consider changing it in order to be WordPerfect.
Keep up the good work and keep keeping the faith. 🙂
