The working title of his movie was, “P.A.I.N.” and is now released as “3AMASMR” or you can think of the title as “3 am ASMR.”
Will Koziey-Kronas is an undergraduate student majoring in Professional Writing at the University of Toronto in Canada.

“People who aren’t familiar with ASMR are usually fascinated by it when their introduced for the first time. I figured a piece about an ASMR creator, written as an introduction to ASMR, would be very compelling.”
