Documentary Preview is Here!

Today the preview for the Boomboxラジカセ Creators documentary is here!

Since starting this “docu-manhunt” last year, we’ve been fortunate to locate a few creators, meet some truly amazing and creative people that have become friends and collaborators, and to begin crafting a documentary that will tell the stories of the people, places, and times behind the iconic boomboxes.

After a couple months of filming and editing, the Boomboxラジカセ Creators team is proud to present a preview of the upcoming documentary film!

Thanks to everyone that helped us reach this milestone!

This preview is a great start, but there is still a lot of work left to do. We’re identifying new creators all the time, and need help locating them and telling their stories. These creators span the globe with a majority of them in Asia. We are looking for filmmakers, journalists, investigators, patent hounds, or anyone with a passion and curiosity for the project. Fluency in Japanese, Chinese, or Korean is especially desirable.
