I (Jeremey) worked as a Producer on this season of Addicted. What that means is that I was in the field with a Sony camera embedded with an addict almost 24/7. In fact that’s what I was doing while Abby and Ben were working the San Francisco International Film Festival (click that link for an example of the awesome work they were doing). Those were some interesting, and radically different check-in calls.
My embed was two weeks (luckily with a partner) and then I picked up intervention, after-vention, and check-in shoots with other addicts. It was a unique experience to say the least, and I have not yet digested it completely. I can’t really get into too much detail about it here, but I will say this about the show, it was exactly the kind of gritty, verite documentary that we find ourselves drawn to at JADED. We love telling stories, real stories, and the lives of those addicts certainly were that. I’d love to do more work like that, it was exhausting, but rewarding. A part of me is glad my stint on Addicted was not for the duration, but another part of me kinda wishes I’d been able to produce more. So with that said, I’ve got to give a shout out and huge congrats to all of our friends on the Addicted team who did the entire six month+ production schedule. Those guys and gals are the true soldiers. You know who you are.
