The Official Launch of Booooooom TV

tv-boom-screenshot

If you’re a part of our Booooooom Secret Email Club this is old news for you! For the rest of you, we’re excited to officially launch our new video platform, Booooooom TV.

Booooooom TV is for filmmakers and film lovers. We’ll be showcasing what we feel are the best animations, short films, music videos and documentaries. All the content that was previously featured in our film category will now live over there. We will be premiering films with some of our favourite directors and producing our own video content for it as well.

We have a lot of amazing things in the works for this new chapter of Booooooom. Have a look around, test it out, watch a bunch of videos. I think you’ll really enjoy the experience of watching films on there. Some changes yet to be made so if you have any feedback for us, send us a tweet! Enjoy!
