Who Am I 
My name is Aamuro. I’m 17 years old and I’m a filmmaker. In 2010 my friend Sophia and I were bored, so we decided to make a science fiction movie with my dad’s camera using ice from our freezer. We named the movie “ICE” and edited it with software on an older Mac. When the movie was finished, we showed it to our 4th grade class and it was a big hit. A few weeks later we made another ICE film, and then another.
That ignited my passion. Sophia and I have since taken different paths, and now I’ve been making movies on a regular basis. Early on, my friend Max and I made an action movie “driving” cars in our garage and providing sound effects with our voices. One day Max gave me a shirt with a smiley face character on the front, and that is how HappyMovies was born! From that point I started following my dream of movie making. Recently I have been incorporating better editing software and equipment for a more professional result. In March of 2015 my film was selected and shown at a local film fest. I took home the Most Likely to Go Viral prize which wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for my supporters. Since then I have had my films shown around the country and at various International Film Festivals! Now it's time for college. But, I need your help.

MY Goals
Kanda Films has been making movies on little-to-no budget using my parents’ money and old equipment. I now want to take our movies to the next level. With your support I will be able to make higher quality movies using better props and editing software to create awesome visual effects. I will also be able to delve deeper into the world of film, no really, like literal film. I have been working on creating unique experimental movies using 35mm film with various cameras. Also, raising money with Patreon will teach me about the world of crowdfunding. Your donations will help me learn both the craft of filmmaking and the tools for running my own business.

What You Get
First of all, I will release a new video near the end of each month. Then, depending on how much you donate, you can receive exclusive Kanda Films merchandise (limited quantities) and even online Q&A sessions!
