About House of History

Welcome to my Patreon page!

Who am I?

My name is Oscar, and I run the Youtube-channel House of History. It is the nexus of my passions: history and politics. Fascinating historical events, periods and people are covered here.

It could be anything: an in-depth documentary about the complete history of Prussia, several videos chronicling the last decades of China's Qing dynasty or a video about a lesser-known secret mission carried out under incredibly dangerous circumstances during the Second World War. History, the real thing, tends to be more amazing than a great film or terrific novel.

My objective is to create documentaries about history and all its bright and dark secrets. The goal is for my videos to be engaging and enjoyable for anyone, young and old, layman and expert.

Why support me?

As a perk to those that support me, you will receive an additional monthly (ad-free) video as part of an exclusive Patreon series. Your support truly does keep this project going, and since YouTube has been my full-time job since the COVID-pandemic, your support allows me to pursue this confidently.

Video editing costs quite a bit. So far my Patrons have enabled me to keep up with my subscriptions to editing software and even upgrade my computer so I can generate high quality animated maps. This increase in video quality would not have been possible without external support.

As of writing this, I have uploaded over 170 videos over the past two years. It has been amazing to work on this channel, and I would love to continue doing so. Unfortunately, many of my videos, especially the better performing videos, run limited-to-no advertisements.

What I'd like to do most is create in-depth documentaries such as the End of Empire: Collapse of the Qing Dynasty (2+ hours of footage, 74 pages of script). This requires not just books, but hundreds of hours of research, recording and editing.

Your support allows me to keep dedicating time to these documentaries. I want to keep working on this channel because it is important to me.

Goals
87 of 100 patrons
The first milestone, ensuring the Patreon series enjoys a regular steady viewer base. From this point onwards Patreon most likely finances all my software- and asset subscriptions for my videos. A great achievement in terms of (financial) security and longevity of the channel.
