I spend my time figuring out whether various unusual videos from around the Internet are real or fake and then present my findings to the world in the form of strange sci-fi comedy web series. Take a look and decide if it's your kind of thing!

If it is, I'm glad you're here. You see, I used to make this stuff infrequently, as a hobby in my spare time. But now, thanks to the amazingly generous support of viewers on this website, I've been able to turn this hobby into my main job and produce a video per month.

I'd like to take it further, however - make my videos better, longer and release them more frequently until they become indistinguishable from, say... a streaming TV series!

If you'd like to support me in this effort, please consider signing up for a pledge from the selection on the right. The rewards are fun and your help will be greatly appreciated (sometimes in a snarky way).

Disillusion Agent Commission
$20 or more per month 15 patrons (sold out!)
A special offer for the truly invested fans. Aside from having constant access to ALL of the rewards above, at the end of the year you will become an official Disillusion Agent.

You will receive a sleek physical package containing:


  • A personal letter of commendation [It may be humorous.]
  • An official insignia pin [Wear it with pride. Or in secret, with only your nerdiest, most understanding friends.]
  • A high-capacity flash drive with the entire year's episodes, making-of-videos, tutorials, artwork and a special bonus video of the Captain personally congratulating you.
Goals
$10,000 – reached! per month
Crew & Studio
While I get a bit of help from friends on some of the videos, 90% of the work is still done by me alone. Also, I film at my parents' house and I think their patience is wearing thin. According to my calculations, this pledge total would allow me to rent a full-time studio space and pay a small crew on a semi-regular basis!
