Paul Diffley ( Hot Aches ) is creating Climbing Films
78

patrons

My name is Paul Diffley, I run a production company called Hot Aches Productions and my passion is making long form documentaries about rock climbing and mountaineering.

Patreon is a new crowdfunding site, a bit like KickStarter but the pledges are much smaller and are paid monthly.

I've been making climbing films for about 14 years, these include E11, Committed, The Pinnacle, and Wide Boyz. I used to sell these films on DVD but now I sell them as digital downloads from sites like Vimeo VOD but unfortunately the income from these sites is not enough to pay for the cost of the production.

My dream is that Patreon will help finance some fantastic new films which you as a patron will get to see first.

Join me on Patreon and you will also get instant access to my whole back catalogue. That's $140 worth of award winning climbing films that you can watch whenever you like for the cost of a coffee.

Be the first to see new films
I normally make one major film a year and maybe a couple of shorts. This year I'm going to complete my feature on William Bosi and I'm making a short film with Hazel Findlay. Both of these films will be available to you to watch at no additional cost, right here in my Patreon feed. As a supporter you will get to see them before anyone else. In addition, I will upload some exclusive clips and outtakes from the films here, in fact I've just loaded a clip of William Bosi trying Hunger 9a. You also have the option to select a reward which puts your name in lights in the film credits, so everyone can see that you helped make them happen.  

Join me on Patreon and together we can make some great new climbing films.

Thank you.

Knowing that I can find a hundred like minded people to join me on this journey would mean so much and be a great start to this new online community.
