Chronic: Need for Weed (teaser clip)

4,314 views

I've released a small clip, this may or may not be in the final film, it's a bit of a pro-stoner sort of sequence but the whole film in the end will hopefully appeal to everyone, not just smokers :) that's the idea anyway.

Let me know what you think.

 

EDIT: PS - watch in HD if you can, it looks much nicer

Just a thought, how bout taking a more educated, posative and professional approach? I personally think the last thing we need is another guy in a singlet teaching people how to roll a scoob, thats more of a you tube kinda tutorial.

This isn't actually intended to be in the film, it's a teaser for the unabashed stoner to enjoy. Have a look at some of the participants in the film, lots of Dr's, PhD's etc.

 

My approach though is to make the film entertaining as well as covering the issues (in a serious way), there's nothing more unengaging than a serious issue driven film, you've gotta maintain people's interest with a bit of humour and production value. There is also an element of destigmatisation with clips like this though with all stoner interviews there's no smoking during real interview, don't want people to discredited... anyway wait for the next trailer, it's not going to be advocating use or glorifying the issues etc. cheers

[duplicated message] Greets everyone, I'll be in Nimbin for MardiGrass showing some clips from the doco and answering questions anyone might have. I'm doing a crowdfunding campaign to coincide with the festival too. This will help me finish the doco much more quickly. Please spread the word, will be great to see you all there. 6pm, Saturday 5th May, Low THC Tent @ Peace Park.

This is going to be awesome. Hope you are putting in some negative things about smoking aswell just so more political figures can see it as a more serious thing aswell. Top job can't wait!

It's a pretty balanced look at things - it's best to hear all sides of the story and let people make up their own minds... there are plenty of esteemed people in the film on both sides of the issue.

 

If you load this up and click "read more" you can see the list of participants so far... www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIH25kBrNg0

 

Thanks for your interest :)
