Hi! My name's Jack Rizzo, I'm a film student from the UK, and I make brickfilms: LEGO stop-motion animations. These range from original works, to comedies and parodies, and more recently to a shared Marvel continuity.

I've been doing this as a hobby since 2007, when I was about 12 (sheesh, nearly 8 years now, I'm starting to feel old) and here I am in 2015, going stronger than ever, and still having a great time doing it.

So what is this Patreon about? Well, as my audience has begun to grow, I've decided it's time for me to up my game. Bigger sets, better lighting etc is all possible with your help. My content is free to view and will always be free, and the fact that I have now set up a Patreon isn't going to change that. I'm not trying to start this as a full-time job, but even a small donation will help me update my equipment and improve the quality of my videos. I'm also hoping to move into creating live-action short films alongside my animations in 2016, and donations will help fund props, costumes and equipment for those too. This is a prospect I am really excited about, and want to be able to create short films that I can truly be proud of.

To clarify, I will only be collecting money from this Patreon to support my larger or longer-term projects. I upload short animations to YouTube quite frequently but many of them (such as my SHIELD Declassified brickfilms and Animation Challenge entries) are spur-of-the-moment productions, and for those I will not ask my patrons for a single penny.



Thank you in advance!

Executive Producer
For being such a generous supporter of my content, you'll receive all the previous rewards, but rather than being listed in the credits as a 'Patron', you will be listed as an 'Executive Producer'! I will also put together an annual DVD of every YouTube video I have uploaded to my main channel that year and send it your way! Finally, I will make you a custom, hand-crafted brickfilm, of any theme or subject within reason, that can be uploaded to my channel, your channel, both or neither, depending on your preference.
