UPDATE: Taylor and Smoot's Kickstarter campaign has come and gone. They have successfully collected the 25K they requested and will go ahead with the completion of their documentary. I'm quite surprised that they hit their target, since they were sitting at 10K the day before their deadline. Congrats and we'll keep you posted as more details become available.

From Taylor and Smoot's Kickstarter page describing the project:
As recorded sound continues its love affair with the downloadable, ethereal digital file, the tangible artefact is quickly becoming a thing of the past.
Help us celebrate the A Side, the B Side, the mixtape, and the whole of cassette culture by supporting Cassette: A Documentary. We'll look at all parts of popular culture influenced by the cassette, including hip-hop and B-Boy culture, indie rock, home recording, and beyond.
Funding platform Kickstarter is a great tool for artists to solicit cash needed to complete their vision. If you dig Taylor and Smoot's idea for this doc, head on over to their Kickstarter page and get your generosity on.
