We had hoped to be ready with the crowdsourcing aspect of the documentary by the beginning of Hemp History Week (starting June 4th); however, upon looking over what steps still need to be done, Jason Love and I thought “yes, we could get everything ready to have the effort launch on June 4th… but why not take the time to make the launch golden versus rush to get the effort done?”
After all, this is a very large scale documentary with content coming from around the country! Issues will occur and take time to fix. Taking chances with mistakes not being caught is too great a risk.
So, as we set a new date for the launch, we quickly saw we had the opportunity to create an animation to not only increase engagement in the documentary but help break up the interviews and help explain the harder-to-grasp concepts. A very winning idea!
Something else we can do is to gather more information to better show what industrial hemp means to the American farmer, as well as to the general economy. I think that this alone will blow your mind and convince many in government positions that the time to act to fix issues in industrial hemp is NOW.
Mr. Love will use this added time to, we hope, pay a visit or two to…well…let’s just say the best spokesmen on the issue of hemp. 😉
We also have a new logo in the works! I’ve attached a preview below, though keep in mind that the text still has to be adjusted.
Stay tuned! More news coming soon.
