 WHO AM I? 
My name is Jonathan Sladko, though online I commonly go by EpicSoren. I am creating a YouTube Studio to help develop my creative ideas and make entertaining, and/or educational content. Right now I'm just a guy in his bedroom making videos, but with your support I aim to become the man who entertains, educates, and inspires. I want to make good quality content, and handle projects of high production value, such as scripted shows.

I am starting, for now, with revitalizing my channel. I'll be devoting most of my free time to this, and I can only do it with support from wonderful people in the community like you! I'm attending university for the next 4 years, and thus, can't make my YouTube videos and have a job and maintain good grades.

 WHAT WILL I DO WITH THE MONEY? 
I will start by pouring my heart into everything I do, making sure that the information I bring to you guys is verifiable and truthful. I'll be able to produce more content with more funding, and my dream is to bring serialized, scripted series to YouTube, in a free-to-anyone, crowdfunded setting. 

As soon as our first goal is met, this will include: 
  • My personal channel, EpicSoren will receive a steady 1 or 2 videos a week as well. These videos will be generally fun, entertaining videos that I can create quickly myself, or with other YouTubers. Think challenges, reviews, nerdy stuff and the like.
  • My vlogging channel,  Jonathan Sladko will continue to simply focus on the daily aspects of my life and adventures around the world. These videos are my pride and joy because I get to have my own little tv show, like I joked about in high school.
  • My gaming channel,  EpicSorenGames will receive daily lets-play style videos. Making these videos helps me relax and have fun at the end of each day.
LET ME ALSO SAY:  As time goes by, if this is successful, I'd like to be running several scripted, highly produced shows on ESTV, and maybe even a news show! As of right now, I don't have the time or manpower, and especially not the funding required to make these the right way. As any other features and projects roll out, Patrons will be the first to know!

 WHY NOT JUST WORK TO FUND THIS MYSELF? 
YouTube has recently faced some controversies which have led them to demonetize large swaths of content. On top of this, they're becoming increasingly unsupportive of their smaller creators. The newest requirements mean that I can no longer earn any money from my videos until I have grown substantially.

On top of that, most YouTubers putting out even 2 videos a week have people working behind the scenes; teams putting out a video a day or more are just that: teams. I am the only person working on this dream of mine right now, and I am asking you all to become a part of it, even if only in the smallest way.

In 2017 I worked as much as 40 hours a week, sometimes more, just to pay my bills, and was still barely scraping by. As 2018 ticks by, I will be attending college full time. Rather than take another job to pay my bills there, it would be huge for me if I could instead focus all of my spare time on my work on YouTube. In this digital age, the kind of content I would like to produce needs to be made regularly, and in a timely matter. I can't simply do what I dream of doing, on my own dime, especially not while working as hard as I have been, and attending college. And that's where you come in.

Reaching even just my first goal on here would allow me to dive into the ocean that is online content, and allow me to have the time and money to make more, better videos in a timely matter. Without your support, I simply don't have the time and money to do this on my own.

 IN CONCLUSION: 
I recognize that one can't simply create success on YouTube anymore. The process is much longer, much more complicated, and there are many more things that could go wrong. This is why I am coming to you for help. If nothing else, Patreon will allow me to continue to put out the videos I want to put out.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for considering this, and especially thank you if you choose to support me.

Awesome! I can now take some time off from my day to put fully towards my videos and other content development, without having to sacrifice that time to a fast food job.
