Zero Period is creating Gaming and Comedy Videos

IMPORTANT UPDATE
I was recently diagnosed with cancer and am being treated for it with chemotherapy. Because of this I am unable to maintain my normal video schedule on YouTube, although I am still trying to make most of my scheduled livestreams. During this time I still plan on maintaining the Patreon and getting all promised rewards out, so long as I am able to. I would also like to add that the Patreon is incredibly helpful at this time as I have medical bills coming in, and still have my usual expenses such as rent, electric, internet, and college loans.  
Hi guys I'm George from Zero Period Productions, a YouTube channel that focuses on gaming and comedy. The channel was originally imagined as a group effort, but quickly became more of a “George and sometimes friends” type deal. For the past few years I've been managing the channel, creating regular content, and I've always tried to improve as a creator.  While I got my start on YouTube, I have since expanded into streaming on Twitch, with a schedule of 3 livestreams a week in addition to my YouTube video content.



Despite being partnered on YouTube, ad earnings aren't the magical “get rich quick scheme” that some people seem to think they are. Without going into a whole lot of extremely boring details, some months are better for earnings than others, it also depends on views, and if people are using adblock. With YouTube's more recent changes to their algorithms and the mass demonetization of videos, things can be unstable. Of course that's also the nature of working in an online space, and I've tried to create more stable sources of income through working part time and becoming a Twitch Affiliate.

Now of question I have for you is, will you help me continue to make videos? I'm not requiring anyone to join my Patreon, my content is free and will remain free, it's something that I firmly believe in. However, by becoming a member you'll gain access to the Patron only feed where we can discuss videos, suggest mods and games that I can play, or even chat amongst yourselves. Like I've said, this is all entirely optional, I don't want to be one of those creators who keeps content behind a paywall. 

What your contributions will go towards (highest priority)
  • Video expenses – This covers things that pertain to the channel. New games to play, upgrades to my PC, new hardware and software, anything and everything that is needed to make videos and streams.
  • Living expenses – This is for the more boring stuff in life. Rent, electricity, and food so that I don't die of hunger. You know that game Don't Starve? Well, don't let me starve, please. Oh, and those pesky college loan payments...
  • Travel / Convention expenses – I've attended conventions in the past, but have always been limited by funds. Turns out travel and hotel are kind of expensive. I'd be able to attend more events aside from those in my immediate area (New York Comic Con and PAX East), and see more of you fine folks at conventions! I'll always do meet-ups and hang-outs at conventions, just show up and we'll have some fun times!
