NOBODY HERE - The Story of Vaporwave

LINK: https://igg.me/at/nobodyherefilm

'Nobody Here' tells the story of Vaporwave and its evolution into the internet's most aesthetic and celebrated micro-genre.

This is the definitive documentary about Vaporwave, whose story is told by some of the most influential voices in the scene's history. The artists, the writers, the labels and (most importantly) the fans.

This film is a journey through time and a love letter to the music that so many of us adore.

They have already secure interviews with some of the scene's legends, including: 猫シCorp., Dan Mason, Death's Dynamic Shroud, Equip, Eyeliner, Yung Bae, George Clanton, Haircuts for Men, Limousine, Luxury Elite, NMESH, Vaperror, Runners Club 95, Saint Pepsi, Surfing/Hawaii94, Telepath, Whitewoods and more!

The NOBODY HERE album will be released alongside the crowdfunding campaign and will be available on two limited edition vinyl pressings, on cassette and on MiniDisc.

We're exceptionally grateful to the artists and labels – new and old – for giving us permission to use these tracks and for bringing this wonderful music to life.

The album will be available on vinyl, minidisc and cassette - plus digital.

There will also be a box set edition.

Note - there are two vinyl variants and both have the same tracklisting. There is an option to buy both pressings together, a box set, and an option to buy either of the pressings.

There will also be physical options for the film - but all merch items will include a download of the film when complete.

I find myself not just being curious about the documentary, but about what it will mean for the Vaporwave community. Will it attract a wider audience and grow the scene? will the new people be only interested in "the old stuff"? Will there finally be an artists from the 80's to embrace its aesthetic potential and become a vaporwave icon? Who knows!

    American capeshit the way I see it is just mindless fun entertainment. If I want to watch ridiculous fight scenes and shit get blown up ill enjoy it but idgaf about the plot really.

    Industrial age American animation is pretty fascinating to me though. 20s 30s 40s 50s 60s. Nobody made anything else like it in the world and it seems really far ahead of it's time visually.

    A few people on here have inspired me to learn more about Japan than the teeny bit I kinda knew. It has definitely solidified my desire to travel there although living there itself seems intimidating even if just due to the language barrier

    The fact that they did this when "computer" was just some obscure profession is mind blowing

    Back when they used to have sometimes just one or two guys as the design leads for each character instead of whole teams and committees.

    I own an old US designed truck pre EFI. Still works amazingly and is simple but effective. Now no offense but "Made in USA" a lot of the time means Chinese quality at Japanese prices

    Hollywood stuff bores tf out of me except Tarantino he is at least more "organic" and he will probably go into the list of great directors one day in a few decades when he gets old

    I genuinely believe in that too. There's something about his movies. He's definitely what you could call in some way a pop director, and because of that some of his stuff can become a bit of what you could also call "cringe-y". But he clearly loves, like immerses himself, and has done so for a long time, in making movies; and there's some part about that where, when you see it, for me, I just sit back and think ,"Alright let's just see what he does."

    I think like the AAA video game industry the big hollywood studios biggest emphasis is the "latest" visual effects regardless of if the movie itself is good or entertaining

  • lobster45:
    The focus has definitely shifted. It's way easier now to make a big movie for less time and effort than it would take to get even an equivalent, not even speaking of profitable, return for a small movie. Developing story and characters and letting a director really attempt to make a film is too expensive a risk. You don't need something like the original Star Wars from an economic standpoint if you have literally all of its parts. They're literally like stripping down great films and just funneling all their shit into cheaper knock-offs.

    Which is honestly fine because I think it's a strategy that's failing.
