An ASMR Documentary is in the Works

I looked on the Facebook group this week (where else?), and came upon yet another interesting topic that was brought up.

John, a new community member who has joined recently, or so it would seem, spoke of an ASMR documentary that is in the early stages of preproduction. It will cover the people who experience it, as well as the subculture of whisper videos and the like on YouTube that we tend to like, and might also feature some opinions from medical professionals on the subject, too.

John is a film maker, and studied film for 4 years. He’s sold some short films to various broadcasters. He is also an ASMR experiencer.

He’s currently looking for individuals in our community to interview and to get on record their take on ASMR, their own personal experiences and the like. Knowing our perhaps shy, introverted nature in general, John has given the option of an audio recording or a video recording of said interview – but says that video would be preferable seeing as the documentary will be directed in that medium. He adds that it's strictly a non-profit documentary which will be released online.

If you would like to get involved, head over to the Facebook group (link in sidebar) if you’re a member (if not, then please feel free to sign up!). There you can get his contact details and arrange a date, time and place to perhaps meet up with him. John works in the UK, so naturally if you live there this would be very advantageous, needless to say. I merely left out John's surname for privacy reasons. It's easy to search the Facebook group, if you're a member. All you do is find the magnifying glass at the top right, and search for "documentary".

A presence on the web dedicated to this documentary should be up and running very soon, too.

We hope to see this documentary see the light of day some time in the future, so thanks go to John for this idea and to everyone who participates. Good luck!

  1. Hi, I wonder if you could tell me a little bit more about finding 'John' on facebook. The asmr groups are quite large and it would be nearly impossible to find him :) Also does he still plane to go ahead with the doc. Thanks.

Bookmarking and commenting only takes a little time, and you can also consider subscribing to my RSS feed for more!

I apologise if you are having trouble leaving a comment. Sometimes the comment system doesn't accept comments. I'm looking in to this right now, and hopefully can find a fix soon. There are several potentional reasons why this may be happening to some people, and one of them points in the direction of a recent Blogger update.

This is the main reason why I am unable to respond to comments left on the blog for the time being, but rest assured that I do read and approve comments that make it through. If you really need to get a hold of me, then visit my contact page in the sidebar to the right. Thanks.
