Oddball Films is letting you in on some of our most recent stock footage projects in film, television, commercials and more. Recent highlights include providing offbeat footage for the credits for the Emmy nominated series Transparent, The New York Times, Ray Donovan as well as the documentary series OJ: Made in America and We've Been Around about transgender trailblazers. We also did research for Jim Jarmusch’s Iggy Pop documentary Gimme Danger, retro-tech for Danny Boyle’s Academy Award nominated Steve Jobs. And wouldn’t you know it? They came to us when they wanted some 70s smut for The Nice Guys, Ryan Gosling’s latest movie!
Oddball Films presents Boozers, Users, and Losers - Vintage Drug and Alcohol Scare Films, a program of mind-expanding, terror-intending and hilarity-inducing short 16mm educational films about the dangers of drugs. These classroom classics from the 1950s through the 1980s were meant to scare the pants off the junior-high set but probably encouraged as many to experiment with drugs and alcohol as it discouraged. Watch mice get drunk and drunks flip cars in the teen drunk-driving scare film None for the Road (1957). Real teens talk about their dalliances with substance abuse in the classroom primer aimed at preteens, Drugs: First Decision (1978). Melanie and Kathleen are desperate to experiment with drugs in excerpts from Degrassi Jr. High - The Experiment (1987). As seen on TV, filthy hippies druggies get what's coming to them in Dragnet: Little Pusher (1969). It may be in Spanish, but you won't miss the message behind the bizarro cartoon Sex, Booze, Blues and Those Pills You Use (1982). And because it never gets old, the Oddball favorite The Cat Who Drank... And Used Too Much (1987) will be drunk driving by. Plus! Vintage Drug and Alcohol PSAs, Beer Commercials, LSD freakouts, the angel dust documentary PCP: You Never Know (1979) for the early birds and more tripped out cinema - all on 16mm film from our massive stock footage archive!
