Be A Part Of The Sanrio Documentary

Okay, let’s see exactly who we have here in the Nerdist community, shall we? Trina Calderon, supervising producer on the Nerdist TV specials and Web Soup, is working on a documentary with Exit Through the Gift Shop producer Roger Gastman and she wants to find people to appear in it, and, well, maybe it’s you or someone you know.

So… Sanrio. You know, the Hello Kitty empire. You’re aware of Sanrio, right? Are you… shall we say… into Sanrio? Are you a fan?  Were you all about the Kitty when you were a kid?  Are you still?  Or do you know someone else who’s obsessed with a Sanrio character? Do you have any Sanrio stories that would make a good segment in a Sanrio documentary? We’re not talking merely walking around with a Chococat backpack or an “ironic” (sure it is) My Melody t-shirt. We’re talking visible tattoos, pilgrimages to Harmonyland, Hello Kitty shrines in your house with candles, stuff that establishes Super Fandom. Or maybe you were traumatized by Hello Kitty and have the therapy bills to prove it. Good or bad, the movie may just need you or someone you know.

If you think you might have what they’re looking for, drop ’em a line at [email protected]. Oh, and the cat says hello.

    No one loves Hello Kitty more than I do. No one. I turned my V.W Cabrio into a Hello Kitty mobile and I think I’m quite close to having all the collectibles. If I see something Hello Kitty that I don’t have I buy it, no questions asked. She makes me happy and helps me remain positive and childlike in this very scary world. I instantly feel happy when I see her face. There are no words how thankful I am for Hello Kitty, she has carried me through some very rough times and I believe without a doubt that she has a soul of an angel. ♥Seja
