About Dan Root



Hello! I'm a professional animator called Dan Root.

I make videos for YouTube that study video game animation
I look at things like how character animations work, why a special effects animation is good, and how you can improve your video game animation. These videos are helpful for game devs looking to get better at game animation, learn why some things look the way they do, and generally be entertaining and insightful for your general YouTuber viewer.



I make these videos in my spare time around my family, career and hobbies. 
That doesn't usually amount to much time, perhaps a few hours a week!
In this day and age, it's incredibly popular to be able to support your favourite artists financially, so this way you can help them produce the things you like.

And this is your chance to do that with myself, to help keep my channel running,
to which I am incredibly grateful.

Patreon pledges will make producing videos a little easier and better, allow me to make purchases towards the channel, such as games, software and the time to research everything properly.



You can decide how much you want to pledge, any amount is fantastic!

But most importantly, don't worry if you start pledging and then you decide you don't want to or you can't anymore. I currently don't make enough money from Patreon that my life will fall apart if I don't receive payment, so it's absolutely fine!

You need to feel comfortable pledging an amount that suits you!

My tier rewards aren't amazing I'm afraid, as I don't get that much time to produce lots of extras.
But here's what's on offer!

$1 - You get access to blog updates and occasional behind the scenes stuff.
$3 - You get early access to videos, usually at least 24 hours if I can.
$5 - You get access to the video script upon completion.
As well as all that, all Patrons get their names in the credits in the video somewhere

You'd be absolutely amazing for helping this channel grow and explore new avenues, and helping me get to the root of video game animation!






Goals
47% complete
I'll be able to spend more full days on episodes, allowing for greater quality of editing, research and animation. Episodes will be uploaded ad-free.
And hey, maybe a special video for Patrons only.
