Let’s go over what I am thinking the documentary series will look like so you’ll have a better understanding of what all will go into this.
We are looking at doing a YouTube series versus DVD or Amazon Prime since my experience from my mob film* (which you can see on this page) was that very few people will pay to see content since there is so much content you can see for free. Even 99 cents is too much for many to pay these days!
On YouTube, you can monetize the shows for about the same rate as Prime. And yet, for whatever reason, many will not use Prime to view a show yet they will watch the same show on YouTube. No idea why! That’s just been my experience. (I’d love to get your ideas on why).
Anyway, if we look at what would have been a DVD with a run time of about 60 minutes as a “season,” this is what we have:
Return of Industrial Hemp to Wisconsin:
- The history of industrial hemp in Wisconsin
- The removal of hemp from Wisconsin agriculture
- The Return of industrial hemp to Wisconsin
- Economic impact
The Promise Medical Cannabis:
- Known treatments
- CBD oil as a cancer treatment
- Cannabis use in opioid addiction treatment
- Future possibilities
We will go out of the way to ensure that all who watch know that THEY NEED TO TALK TO THEIR DOCTOR!
Promise and Pitfalls:
- Economic boom in legal states
- Medical research
- Cannabis millionaires
- Penny stock frauds
- Quack cures
- Issues to overcome in banking
We’re hoping to get any type of fund drive going at the start of Hemp History Week, with pre-production completed in mid July 2018, and the shows going up on YouTube in August 2018.
I estimate that the cost of this production will be between $8,000 and $15,000.
Understanding how the project will make the money back is important, but that will be for another post.
Until next time.
*Note: The mob documentary may be sold soon. If so, it will only be available via Amazon Prime. Watch it for free while you can!
