The Sunshine Makers Movie CLIP – First LSD Experiences (2017)

5 Jan

There are a lot of psychedelic videos out there, but usually they are not really psychedelic in the sense that they recreate the visual effects that people actually see while on psychedelics. In other words, their visual effects are not really similar to those of psychedelic experiences. However, there is one subgenre of psychedelic videos that is focused on recreate the specific ways in which psychedelics make us see open eye visuals. Some videos from this genre can be found in scenes from movies like Fear and loathing in Las Vegas or Leaving Woodstock. To my mind the last 40 seconds of this clip out of “Sunshine Makers” (documentary about legendary LSD chemists Nick Sands and Tim Scully is the best rendition of the actual effects of psychedelic visuals so far, really tracing the very subtle and meaningful ways in which psychedelics alter perception. Check it out!
