Casting call for young people for drug culture documentary

Channel V is an all-music channel on the Foxtel / Austar subscription TV service. They’re working in conjunction with Reachout.com to produce a documentary on the Australian drug culture and young people and are seeking some to play a role. It’s a shame alcohol has been quarantined from the process.

Full details:

“Channel [V] together with Reachout.com.au are producing a one hour documentary on Australian drug culture and how it impacts young people’s lives, which is due to broadcast on Channel [V] in June 2008.

We are seeking young people (18 – 25) to take part and share their own opinions, knowledge and questions about this important issue.

We are looking for people who are willing to speak frankly and openly on camera about how drugs have affected their lives – whether they have had no contact with drugs, some or a lot. We are mainly looking to discuss Cannabis, Ecstasy, and amphetamine type substances (speed, ice etc).

If you would like to take part and share your story, please complete the form below and be honest as possible. You are under no obligation to take part and your privacy will be protected at all times. A representative from Channel [V] or Reachout.com.au will contact you to talk directly through the project in more detail.

If you’ve ever thought you weren’t being heard or given the right information, then this is an exciting opportunity to be involved in a project that will give a real insight into the situations and problems young people face with drugs.
