I'm Harris Bomberguy! That's not my real name, but it's close.

I work as a freelance writer, editor, and animator, and have worked for, among others, films of the School of Life. But I also make videos of my own for the internet. That's probably why you're here.



A lot of videos on the internet are funny. A lot of videos on the internet are smart. My goal has always been to do both at the same time - to make a useful or important point in the guise of comedy. My videos cover a variety of topics and styles, but the overall focus is on analysing media and trying to contribute to the discussion.

I aim to release around three videos a month. I usually end up making less.

The content I create is often too off-the-cuff, or weird, or esoteric for a mainstream audience, which is why I use Patreon to support my work.



You get access to bonus, extra content I either make specially for my backers, or which I thought was too experimental or out-there for the full videos and didn't want to risk inflicting on a more casual audience.

You can also get your name in the credits, or have your name spoken out over the ending of videos as a direct way of thanking you for your direct help with making these videos possible.



Supporting me helps me take more risks with my projects - a lot of material I cover is copyrighted, and Fair Use is more of a guideline than a law, making it impossible for me to ever really profit from monetising my work. With your support, I can afford to continue to cover topics in a valuable way without fear of being rendered incapable of feeding myself in the space of a single copyright claim.

The money also goes to better production equipment and also the various props and bits of software that get used in the course of making internet videos.



A less foolhardy critic would tell you there's no easy answer, and it depends on what you personally prefer.

But there's actually a right answer, and that answer is Xavier: Renegade Angel. There are no other correct answers, and if you disagree, you are wrong.
Tiers
Backer
$2 or more per Video

If you donate this much a month you get access to the backer videos, such as all the outtakes, BTS, and other stuff I cut out of the videos for time. I try to get these up within a few days of the original video.


You also get access to my Discord, and a backer role acknowledging that you are one of my bosses!

Includes Discord rewards
Fundie
$5 or more per Video

In addition to the other stuff, I will thank you in the credits of every video after the one you pledged, immortalising you as an enabler of my garbage! Thanks buddy friend!

Includes Discord rewards
Absolute Unit
$10 or more per Video

On top of the other stuff, I will openly thank you in-video for it and be all genuine about it or something. Using clever editing you can then make it look like I'm calling you the next Jesus. Which you probably are.

Goals
100% complete
At this level of funding, along with another increase in the quality of equipment I'll have access to, I want to start making more stuff specifically for backers, such as whole commentary tracks for movies (which backers can vote on). But also, I want to start going into game development.

Backers will receive frequent and detailed video updates on the progress of the game, along with direct input on the direction of its development and access to playable betas for testing, and in addition will get the game for free upon its release.
