Creativity with a Conscience.


Hey! I'm Ahsante - YouTuber, multi-media artist, filmmaker, and recent Harvard college grad (i.e. a huge nerd).

As I say on my YouTube channel, I want to encourage folks to live spiritedly and think creatively. My goal is to create media that's a spirited reflection of the lives we live and grapples critically with the problems we face. I aim to make videos that touch people, get you to think about life differently, realize a truth about society or yourself, or that simply inspire and make your day a little brighter :)

On my YouTube channel I make vlogs about social issues, hustling through life (without burning out), and pure expressions of creativity like short films and music videos.



Why Give? 

If you think my videos are valuable, if they've made an impact or inspired you, if you think voices like mine should be represented, then supporting on Patreon is the best way to make sure my videos continue.

Right now I'm squeezing video making into my "free" time, so I can't always make it a priority - and there may come a time where I can't afford to (we all know time = $). But Patreon funds will go directly to making my channel financially sustainable, improving the production quality of my videos, and hopefully growing a team (right now I'm riding solo).

You can also make a one-time donation via PayPal, if that works better for you.

What if you're broke?

No worries! If you're tight on cash, even just $1 per month would be super helpful - and you can do that by pledging $1 and setting a monthly maximum of 1 video per month. Feel free to tailor to your budget!

And even if you don't have $1 to spare (the hustle is real, the rent is too darn high, you're on that student grind - I get it), you can always share my videos, sign up for my email newsletter, and encourage your friends to subscribe! Those are the best non-money ways of supporting - and thanks for watching!

What's in it for you?

I want my Patreon to be a community. As a patron, you can get:
  • Access to my Patreon feed where I post videos, updates, and welcome feedback and discussion.
  • Opportunity to suggest video topics and get shoutouts
  • Behind the scenes looks at my video making and "Ahsante the Artist" activities, monthly livestreams, and more ways for us to connect directly. 
Often the comments that I get on my YouTube videos are what keep me motivated to keep creating, even when time is tight, and I'd like to continue those conversations here.

How often do I post videos?

I typically upload between 2-4 videos a month. Feel free to set a monthly cap on donations if you like, that way you don't have to worry if I'm feeling super productive :) And the nice part is that pledges are directly correlated to output, so if there's a month where I can't make a video - you want be charged. Thanks so much for your support!

Lights, Camera, Audio!
I'll be able to bump up the production quality! I can put these funds towards, lighting equipment, getting a DSLR, and more. Lamps! Bulbs! Stands - oh my! I'd love to get softboxes, a smoother, steadier tripod, a legit microphone, and materials for DIY camera rigs.
