There’s No Such Thing As An Old Junkie

Focus 12, Arran Bowyn, Bare Films, AMV-BBDO

This compelling drugs awareness/ promotional film was for Focus 12, a rehab clinic. The strong & sadly true message being: ‘There’s no such thing as an old Junkie’. Award winning Casting Director Mark Summers and his team were challenged with this casting showing older drug abusers indulging in their addiction to heroin, crack and cocaine. 

For many of the actors’, both the final selection & in the casting process, it was their first experience of acting as if using drugs! We were proud to be part of this very powerful film.
