The main focus of this Patreon will be my In Depth Analysis series: mini-documentaries, each of which explores its own topic. Visual elements will supplement the narration, they will be cited where relevant, and they'll be thoroughly researched in advance.
Episode 1, Charisma For Introverts:
Episode 2, The Broken Relationships of Star Trek: The Next Generation
The Broken Relationships of Star Trek: The Next Generation (In Depth Analysis Episode 2) from Davis M.J. Aurini on Vimeo.
Episode 3, Trotsky and Lenin: Early Marxist Philosophers
My goal with these videos is to appeal to two distinct groups:
- My core audience. Each episode of In Depth Analysis will be the same sort of abstract philosophical content they're used to. Insightful, practical, and covering the sort of topics I cover every day - art, culture, philosophy, and politics.
- Anybody who's not necessarily part of this community, but who is open minded and curious. These videos will be less 'niche', more accessible, and (if I do my job right) they will wind up improving the quality and erudition of our society's dialogue.
Ultimately what I want to create - and what I'm asking you to help me create - is the sort of stuff that will improve the lives of anyone who watches it. Whether it's self-help, education, age-old wisdom, or just entertainment - I want everybody who watches these videos to walk away stronger, happier, and more confident in themselves so that all of us can work together to build a better future.
