We Are Vapers
I have started the process of shutting down principle filming! What does that mean? That means that there are no more planned trips to film for the documentary. I was very torn on making this decision, we are at a critical juncture in time with events unfolding worldwide that would be great to cover in the documentary. There are still so many more stories I wanted to collect…. but alas one must stop filming at some point or risk suffering a case of “Exit through the Gift Shop”. The footage is being backed up off site in 2 locations. During the last year the We Are Vapers Crew has shot 413 hours of footage for just shy of 11 Terabytes of storage. (Backup offsite will take 8 weeks alone)
So what happens now that principle filming is done?
The first there will be a month break where I will take a break and spend time with my family before begin the long process of screen writing , reviewing the 400+ hours of footage and laying in the rough edit. This will be a long process that I will do after work and on weekends. This process will take 12+ months to complete. During which time we will also do any reshoots or additional shoots as events unfold.
Once the Rough Edit is done then is critiqued then we work on a polish edit and the music score.

Smoking tobacco can contribute to major health,problems. In the United States and Canada alone, over 50 million people are spending over $50 billion each year for a product which could eventually kill them. The vast majority of smokers who attempt to quit fail.
Today virtually all efforts in tobacco control are prohibitionist in nature and are aimed at breaking nicotine addiction to prevent the use of all tobacco products, rather than focusing on reducing smoke exposure.
There is a different approach to saving lives – Tobacco Harm Reduction
Tobacco harm reduction describes actions that one can take to lower the health risks associated with smoking tobacco. Tobacco Harm Reduction strategies center around providing sufficient nicotine to maintain normal functioning while eliminating the harmful effects of inhaling smoke. A very important part of tobacco harm reduction is simply educating people about the risks of different sources of nicotine.
Electronic cigarettes are intended as an alternative to smoking tobacco cigarettes. They are not designed to treat nicotine addiction, only provide nicotine in a safer manner. Electronic cigarettes are a simple devices that affords the committed smoker nicotine intake through a battery-operated system.
Recent estimates indicate that there are approximately 2.5 million e-cigarette users in the United States.
This film will explore the concept of Smoking Tobacco Harm Reduction, e-cigarettes role and the community that has risen alongside it.
This documentary will cover:
· History of E-Cigarettes
· Personal Stories of e-cigarette users (also known as Vapers)
· The Concept of Harm Reduction
· The Personalities of the Community
· The Health Implications
