I started vlogging in April of 2015.  I'd spent the past couple years falling in love with several YouTube vloggers and I wanted to step deeper into the community - so I became a creator.  

I love it! 

I love writing.  I love having a schedule on Tuesday and Friday.  I love making people laugh.  

But mostly, I love that I've found a way to be creative on my own.  Theatre and film require so many people and so much time and money, that you can't do it by yourself - which leads to long creative dry spells.

But this?

I've been making two videos a week by myself for months.  They're short and unpolished, but also satisfying and worth sharing.  

That said, I would like them to be better.  

So we've come full circle, because I can't do that on my own.

It takes me about 5 hours to write, film, edit, and upload one of my videos.  I'm happy to schedule 10 hours a week for my hobby, but if I'm going to grow as a creator I need more time.  And that's what your support can buy me.

With time I can take a film editing course. 

I can plan specific vlog segments.  

I can turn the intro song into a full length song with lyrics.

I can write and film sketches.

I can film Someplace - a play I wrote, produced, and acted in while studying at Rosebud School of the Arts.

(Those last two are gonna require money and people, in addition to time - so, you know, long term goals.)

Whatever you decide, thank-you for reading this and thank-you for watching my vlog!

BLOOPERS!!! And access to the patron-only feed!  With each video post, you'll get a bit of extra insight: about what I've put in the intro, how my week's going, what's next, etc.  And once a month (typically at the very end of the month) I will upload a compilation of my favourite vlog mishaps. These may or may not include swearing, unintentional physical comedy, and me talking to myself.

MY THANKS! Nothing extra for this level, just, you know, 2 is twice as much as 1 and if you're inspired to give $2 for bloopers, I will take it :)

Something creative/artistic I've been working on (plus all lower level rewards). It might be some writing, or a cover song on the guitar, or a monologue, or anything really but once a month I will post...something!

Postcards! - (plus all lower level rewards). Three times a year (January, May, and September), I will send you a postcard.  I will write on it.  I will doodle on it.  It'll be great.
Goals
$105 of $200 per month
Whether it's a food, hobby or sport; I will create a recurring vlog segment in which I find something new to try, and I will capture the experience on camera.  I'm open to suggestions (but also afraid - please be kind).
