Hi everyone!


I've been creating free content for digital distribution both independently and via my production banner Digital Era Entertainment since 2003 and releasing it online via Youtube and other streaming platforms since 2007.

In that time, I've mostly become known for my musical endeavors, emceeing work, and most recently (in a fitting full-circled callback to an early project) being Lead Announcer for long-running performance troupe Kaiju Big Battel.


Appearance as Batman for a video by my friend (and YouTube personality) DPiddy! Part of a playlist featuring a ton of content I was a part of, from live performances to appearances in other creators' videos and more!

Spoiler-filled Trailer for FFvsKBB (2005). Playlist of related items here, full film page here.


While I've tried other modest fundraising efforts over the years, I didn't push them too hard because I didn't feel confident in one critical thing:

The ability to guarantee persistent content.


The completed 2015 version of the 2007 HD remake of the (publicly unreleased) 2004 DEE short film. Yeah, kinda nuts, right? ^^; Part of a playlist including this and and its incomplete sequels.

Episode 0 of "Doujinopolis" (2009-2010, web series).

Samples of past work commission work, starting with "Durarara!!: Day 2 Remember" pilot (2010); also featured in the playlist are official Aniplex of America promos for the series done in collaboration with American Cosplay Paradise.


This is mostly because while I've had the help of wonderful friends and collaborators along the way, at the end of the day, I've been doing all this by myself: funding, editing...the whole nine! After so many years and non/low-profit projects that have wiped away financial resources and energy, it's been difficult to sustain alone.

That's all changed. Because I'm not doing this alone anymore. :3

After a year of proving the DEE CORe team can be a workhorse of consistency, I'm happily expanding operations to welcome in more people and finally ready to ask for that extra helping hand to keep being able to provide quality content while making new steps forward that weren't possible until now.


The first released video for DEE CORe's 2017 revival, and the first of what we hope to be many more with the extra support! Since it isn't embedding properly, I encourage you to watch live video from the official DEE Twitch Channel on www.twitch.tv, which started broadcasting as of January 1, 2018! As of this writing, it streams gameplay sessions and the live recording of the "DEE CODE" podcast Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7PM EST. Personally, I feel this is the pinnacle of the promise of this page's pledge to provide persistent playback for Patrons. ;D


In short, as best describes my goal for this Patreon:

It takes a village...not a Batman. ;D

I hope you will help be a part of building and sustaining this village, and my deepest thank yous to everyone who has provided years of support up to now; let's take it up a notch and build something even greater together!

Goals
$10 of $250 per month
Basic monthly goal. Note that the first $350 collected every year will help us keep the proverbial lights on year-to-year for both DEE and DEE CORe's websites+domain registrations.

The rest of the year, these funds will be used to keep related "basic" bills at bay and focus squarely on the #CONTENT for smoother long-term operations.
