Who am I?
My name is David Kahl and I am a Software Developer and VFX Artist based in Germany.
After being bored with my occupation as a Developer and Consultant I started to digg into the world of VFX. After some fooling around in After Effects, Blender and Co I stumbled over Houdini and stayed with it ever since.

What do I do in Houdini?
It's build-in programming language VEX helped me to find my own way in Houdini. But since programming does not come easy to everyone I started to focus on that and help people to find an smooth way into it.
As a first step I created the pluralsight course VEX Fundamentals. It allows people without a programmer background to find their way into its mechanics.
Today I created different Streams of Content that also help with that. With the VEX Functions and VEX Quickies there is always something new to discover.

As my next project in Houdini I want to work on something bigger. Something that will challenge my understanding in programming and Houdini but also teach me something new.

What happens on Patreon?
I have a passion for Learning, Creating and Sharing. Patreon is another way to help me do that. It is a brilliant platform to create a community around what I do, start conversations and having a way to return something for the support.

I decided to try a new approach of creating premium content like courses and assets. While going into production for a certain project I am going to take tiers of patreons with me creating the video content. These "courses" might develope like a study starting with a goal and showing the process to get there one clip at a time. So it gives you the option of throwing in your ideas & critism. Whoever is in the Auditorium in that phase will be mentioned as sponsor for this project.
In addition to that there will always be an asset that is the result of that study. Another tier of patreons - the Dev Team - is involved in directing the functionality of those assets. Functionality needed, UI evaluation and general access to the assets during it's development.

But the big difference in this approach - everything that I create, produce and finish will be available for the Gang. Over time, when all Patreons had a chance to get their hands on it, hat time to get potential questions answered - I am going to release that video content free for everyone to watch. So let's see how that works out.

Cheers
Dave

As the community I keep you up to date on what's going on. You get early access to video content before it goes public on youtube. I post regular quick tips in a blog like format. You are always welcome to add to the topic. When that results in a video you are credited for your idea.
