Director Statement

ASMR: The Phenomenon That Changed The World, for me, is a short documentary aiming to show the world what ASMR is truly about and an attempt to remove any negative connotations or stigma surrounding the term. Additionally, I think that it is my best project I have created so far and acts as a demonstration of my various skills.

I created this project with no budget whatsoever and I cannot begin to imagine the level of sophistication and potential this project would have with an actual filming budget. If I were given the opportunity to remake this project into a full-length feature, I would take it in a heartbeat.
