Cannabis Culture Explored

Operating as usual

Filter x Ashley Orr 17/11/2023

WE ALMOST DID IT ... we got soooooo close to meeting our Kickstarter goal and the whole process of running a campaign has been WILD! What a rollercoaster of emotion and what a heartwarming adventure, at the end of the day.

We are blown away and really, REALLY want to thank our early backers/adopters/supporters of this campaign as well as those who amplified it. It means a lot. Kickstarter is known for making creative and innovative projects a reality and it really comes down to community support! In their own words “Creating something new is hard, full of ups and downs. Your pledge is an up—it's a sign that you believe in this project, and a step toward making it a reality.”

THANK YOU!! ❤️💯🔥🥰 and ... there might be a re-launch take 2 which we'll send personal invites to. Stay tuned …

In the meantime, check out this teaser for Season 1! We are going to be releasing 4 episodes soon and it’s been a loooooooong time coming for this release!!

We're about halfway through our Kickstarter Campaign for Filter and thank you to everyone so far who has backed us in this labour of love and the 1st of many provocative (IMO) originals we’ve been working on. If you are thinking of backing the project, check out the campaign page, and we would appreciate the boost! (Kickstarter is stressful 😂😓)

If you believe in changing the filmmaking and storytelling around cannabis content/culture/conversations, this is right up your alley!

We’ve reached 7% funded for our Kickstarter campaign!!!! 😍🍾🤩

That is 7% closer to 100% funded and we really can’t thank our first 10 backers enough for the amazing early days support and for giving us that glowing feeling of support and encouragement as we work on getting Season 2 ready (and Season 1 release ready). THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU ❤️❤️❤️

Check out the campaign. 🎉🔥

We’ve launched our first Kickstarter for one of our original projects, Filter - and we’re excited to see how this goes! They say that it’s usually people that have been in your corner through the years that are first to support you, so blasting this to our valued ecosystem and community!

So... if you've followed D55, collaborated with D55, networked with D55, been supported by D55, rooted for D55, stayed up late getting deadlines done with D55, then check out our Kickstarter and consider backing the project. The rewards are pretty cool including credit opportunities (your name on the big screen) and visits to set during Season 2 filming! 🎉🔥😎

Hey Buds! We want you to meet the Buds behind Filter! ⁠

It's been great having Michael on our Filter post-production editing team, with his talent as well as thoughtful eye for composition and storytelling. He’s been exploring each frame of footage and helping us save some of our past shoots from the cutting room floor 💯

BTS Filter Moments 18/04/2023

Everyone that’s been on a film set, especially an indie set, knows how hard people work and how many minds it takes to “get the shot”. Thanks to those that have been involved in Filter, past, present, future and we look to shoot more footage and grow the Filter channel! A collection of some behind-the-scenes moments, over the years!

Filter x Blondies Pizza 30/03/2023

In anticipation of summer...here’s a short clip from Filter Season 1, just an ordinary day, exploring the Tdot, chatting about art, cannabis and pizza...or more succinctly, a pizza vending machine 😆

We loved mixing Cannabis + Food Culture, as a bit of a driver and storytelling device and hope to explore more of this for future content!

V***r Central Tour 28/03/2023

We’re excited to FINALLY be releasing footage we shot way back in 2020 🫣. The past few years have been chaotic to say the least but saving these important conversations from the cutting room floor is giving us new life for new Filter content and getting a Season 1 for the series produced!

This video was filmed at V***r Central in August 2020. V***r Central closed 6 months later due to the pandemic. RIP to an integral part of the community that was so important to so many. It was an honour for the Filter team to film in the space before it shut its doors and document how so very special it was!
