About

Good evening.

For years, I've been championing the genius of Alfred Hitchcock online, in classrooms and on speaking gigs everywhere from Broadway to the Beaverton Public Library. I'm now bringing the Master of Cinema to a wider world of film lovers, fans, nerds, geeks, teachers, students and filmmakers with this video series. But I can't do this alone—your help is essential.

FOR THAT, IN ADVANCE, THANK YOU! This is an extremely ambitious project. Your monthly support will be used for video equipment upgrades, to pay my talented pro team and to support the many hours of research and production that go into each carefully crafted project. In return, you get access to a range of exclusive rewards.

Patreon: What? Why?

Patreon is a crowdfunding platform whose monthly subscription model makes it possible to bring a steady stream of cool stuff into the world. Personally, I love that the platform leans towards smaller pledges. A $2 pledge truly can go a long way—I'm just glad that you're along for the ride. And don't worry, you can quit any time! Here's more detail.

Beyond the geekery.

I also write humorous pieces, art theory and memoirs for The Big Smoke, McSweeney's Internet Tendency and a variety of Medium publications, as well as paint and create mixed-media art. Stay tuned for my 360 VR film, now in post-production! As a patron, you'll be in the know on all of it. Plans are in the works to deliver some of these creations to your front door.

Have you tired of hearing my echo-ey voice and putting up with that jumpy-jerky editing? Me too! Let's up our movie magic game with the purchase of a lavalier mic, a teleprompter, a green screen and a decent lighting setup!
