Everyday Driver is creating Car Review Films
143
patrons
$1,053
per month
What we do:
While there are a few other web-shows creating TV-quality car reviews like ours, all of them operate with large staffs and high budgets, and most have the financial backing of a large corporation.

"Everyday Driver" was created by two of us, Paul Schmucker and Todd Deeken, and we still do the vast majority of the work for the show.  We have a few guys that help us shoot when we need extra hands, but we all work for free.  We strive to grow our show out of a passion for cars and a desire to make some of the best car-content available.

Unfortunately, YouTube income doesn't provide enough for us to put all the time we'd like into the show.  So, we create new reviews as fast as we can, with all the time and money we have available. Only outside help will allow us to increase our speed without sacrificing the quality of our work.  We want to create even more.

What a "Patron" does:
Being a Patron allows you, the most supportive and vocal members of our audience, to have a direct role in the growth of our show.  If less than 5% of our audience became patrons, our little show would be revolutionized.  Much more content. The same high quality you've come to expect... and even an increase in scale.

How Patreon works:
Select a support amount. Enjoy your little extras for being a Patron, (such as seeing our reviews before everyone else!) and smile as you see our films come out more frequently. This is a monthly contribution, so as we do more your amount will NOT increase. Our videos will remain free to everyone on YouTube - but you will be a vital part in helping "Everyday Driver" do much more.

Hang out with us!  Once a month, join Paul and Todd on a Google Hangout.  This will be an informal half-hour or so with "Ask us Anything" style discussion. We can talk car debates, behind the scenes, or just life.  You'll also get everything else listed here: the images, the early access, and the free copies of our larger work.
Goals
$1,000 – reached! per month
Once we reach this amount we'll add more locations to our travels, allowing us to get into unique cars all over the country.  Many people have asked us to come review their cars, but we just can't afford to go to them.  Plus, we'll finally get to put some more out-of-the way great roads on camera for all of you to enjoy.
