I’m a Producer with Dig, an ethnographic research firm out of Evanston, IL. We are currently developing a small research documentary on recreational cannabis—and I’ve just begun casting for this project, which will be filmed in the general Chicago area in early June 2021.
We are looking to cast a wide, diverse variety of people aged 30-55 in the greater Chicago area. We are definitely aiming to include voices from the Black, Latinx, and Asian communities—and from urban, suburban, and rural areas.
I’m reaching out to a variety of cannabis-friendly forums, businesses, publications, etc., that might have people in their networks who could be interested in participating. (Chosen participants will receive stipends for their participation. It’s also worth noting that this project will not be published or broadcast, but is rather intended for internal educational purposes. To be mindful of privacy considerations, no one will be identified by name on-camera.)
Please feel free to DM me if you’re interested in learning more & I’d be happy to share details.
