Four years ago, you helped print the first edition of The 420 Code. Since then, I’ve written a novel and co-directed a low-budget feature film.
Now, I want to shoot a short film adaptation of The 420 Code. A minor motion picture.
I want it to look like a Terrence Malick movie, if Terrence Malick got really high. Magic-hour lighting, whispered wisdom, and beautiful shots of trees.
This will share the Code with a whole new audience.
And it will cost at least $420. Any more will be spent on better lenses and better lighting. If you can spare a few dollars, help share the Code.
Four dollars will help a lot and get you a special thanks in the movie. Fourteen dollars will get you an autographed copy of The 420 Code. And twenty-four dollars will get you a short short story featuring the character of the stoner discoursing on any topic you choose.
It will probably take about four months to make the movie.
In keeping with the Code, the film will be available for free online. But everyone who gives will get to see it early.
Thank you very much for reading. Be open, honest, free, and fun.
And may you never be dry.
Risks and challenges
There are major risks with making any movie. Fortunately, this project (and therefore its risks) are small. Our major challenge will be finding locations that are both beautiful and free to use. However, I believe that my experience shooting a low-budget feature has prepared me for this.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
