High There - a Man's Descent Into Drugs and Paranoia

Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
A real-life attempt to film a reality television pilot turned into the most unreal experiences of a lifetime for veteran journalist and producer Wayne Darwen and videographer Henry Goren, when they found themselves transformed into the characters Dave High and Roland Jointz in an accidental immersive investigation of the marijuana wars on the island of Hawai'i.. Not quite sure what they had when they brought their film and video back to the mainland, the pair edited a brief trailer that was posted on YouTube and quickly racked up more than 1.5 million views -- that's one point five MILLION -- while Darwen's appearance as Dave High on TheLipTV's Buzzsaw podcast shattered previous download records. With the help of veteran producer Burt Kearns, HIGH THERE became a film, Darwen found himself compared to gonzo legend Hunter S. Thompson and Australian comedic icon Barry MacKenzie, and a new legend was born..
