7ACRES – ACCEPT NOTHING LESS
10 EPISODE SERIES
Create a 10 part video series exploring 7ACRES meticulous cannabis growing and manufacturing process.
All 10 episodes are driven by voice over so we needed to find interesting ways to give this magical plant and process a personality its own.
Working with the agency, Cruel Commons, we built a creative visual approach that would allow us to create 10 unique episodes that all fit within the campaigns style but allowed each one to feel unique in it’s presentation.
Like David Attenborough, but for weed.
We focused on a combination of specialty camera and lens techniques to shoot the plant in unique ways we hadn’t seen before. Using microscopic lenses we were able to shoot these plants in extreme detail and make science a little more cinematic.

The campaign kicked off with a profile on Highsnobiety and releases weekly across the 7AC social and web outlets.
Check out the first 3 episodes below.
