Inside the Outside

Outsider Music is a genre of self-taught or naïve musicians who lack formal training, technical skill, or commercial appeal. It emerged in the 1960s and 1970s and has since expanded to include a diverse range of styles and subgenres.

The movement has significantly impacted contemporary music and thrives today as a space for unconventional and boundary-pushing artists. Feature documentary, ‘Inside the Outside’, explores the creative dissonance that drives this global community to produce and perform, celebrating the often wild genre with empathy and humour.

The ‘Inside the Outside’ film is currently in development and at the pre-production stage. If you would like any additional information please use the button below to get in touch with us at Paper Vision Films or visit our website at
