Question:  Was there an earlier release of The Zen Rap?


Answer:  There was indeed.  The Z-Rap was the first footage from the documentary that I cut together (with the help of Gary Lamb* for this initial effort).  Mister Pinc wanted to premiere the song on YouTube around 4-20, so this is what we came up with, a mere five months after the wrap of principal photography in Amsterdam...

[Speaking of which, the guy who did the green dialogue titles for us used the wrong word toward the end of the sequence: it’s supposed to be “a wrap on The Zen Rap,” of course - although I think “a rap on this zen crap” at the very end still still works.]

<-- *Gary does double-duty on the project by manning one of the video cameras at the 11-26-11 SZN Director’s Cut screening.
