Hello to anyone who blundered in here!
I make documentaries. Not an awful lot of them as I only really want to make ones about subjects that matter to me. It’s not easy to get funding for these films so it might take a good couple of years or more to finish a project, especially if it’s not destined to be broadcast.
At the moment I’m trying to get funding for a follow-up documentary to my BBC film from 2004 called Detox or Die. I had so much great feedback related to that film that I felt the time was right to further investigate the strange psychedelic detox substance I used to get off methadone/heroin. Known as ibogaine, and in its raw form as iboga, the drug puts the user into a 36 hour gut-wrenching trip that often purges and cleanses soul, body and mind of the cravings and most of the terrible withdrawals associated with addiction.
I hope to finish this proposed feature documentary by the end of this year (2012). The working title is Iboga Nights and I’ll be seeking funding to complete the film from crowd-funding sources and various charitable bodies.
I’ll keep you posted on any updates as they happen.
That’s all for now and I’ll post again soon.
