Crowdfund This! BRAINGASM And ASMR
Lindsay Ragone's doc on the subject - and any movement that chooses the afro haired PBS painter Bob Ross as their unofficial patron saint is good in my book - traces the history of the online community that has sprung up spontaneously over the past few years on Youtube and beyond.
These online videos of whispering and soft spoken members flipping book pages, stroking fabrics and swishing beads, in the words of the filmmaker, "Actively help each other battle insomnia, depression, and even loneliness through creative expression."
The Braingasm Kickstarter Campaign is hoping to raise enough money to finish principle photography on the project that has been in production for some time (Twitch ran the initial teaser trailer last year).
