ABOUT DEMYSTIFYING CANNABIS
This documentary tackles the myths and taboos that characterize the complex cannabis plant, and the stigma faced by its consumers.
In January 2020, I was brought onto this fascinating documentary project produced by Red Letter Films to create a graphics package and explainer animations. The original French-language version was released as «Le malaise cannabis» for Société Radio-Canada and RDI and can be watched here.
MOOD BOARD
Key words from client: hexagon shapes, gradients, science imagery, fine lines, subtle textures. Stay away from typical "hippy" tie dye imagery usually paired with cannabis products.
Mood boards helps the client visualize what the final animation might look and feel like.
