Lechnology is creating CG Brickfilms

$4
per animated video
Hey everyone.  I am Lewis, I love LEGO and brickfilm animation.

I also love making CGI brickfilms.  I've uploaded a few CGI brickfilms over the years but not a lot, likely because I'm working or job hunting, or because producing a CGI brickfilm takes time and energy (mostly electricity to power my render farm*).

If you enjoy the animations I make and would like to support me in continuing to make animated videos, consider supporting me here on Patreon.

Your patronage goes to helping me:

  • Pay the electric bill (and gas milk for my car cereal)
  • Upgrade/maintain my render farm*
  • Produce more animated shorts and 360 VR that you want to see.

In return for your patronage, you get:

  • Updates on upcoming projects and you get to provide input for future animations.
  • Advance access to animated shorts (about a month before everyone else does)
  • Advance access to behind-the-scene and bonus content (about a month before everyone else does)
  • And more (I don't know...cat videos maybe?  I'll get back to you)

* A render farm is a group of computers used to render (create) each frame of animation you see in my videos.  Without them, it would take months or years for one computer to produce CGI videos.

I don't plan to post more than two videos per month.  I give you my word that I won't charge you for posting a bunch of videos all at once.  As Patreon users, you have full control of how much you're willing to pledge per month.

Test clips, previews, and update videos will not be counted as animated shorts, although they may be shared as Reward content.

Also, take a look at my milestone goals.  Your support can help me reach those goals.

Thank you for your consideration and even if you're unable to pledge, you can still show your support by liking and sharing my videos and subscribing to my channel.  My YouTube videos will always be free (and ad-free) for all to watch, but Patreon supporters will get early access.

Tiers
Bronze Tier
$1 or more per animated video 0 patrons
My gratitude for your support and your name in the credits of future animations.
Silver Tier
$2 or more per animated video 0 patrons
Along with Bronze Tier reward, you'll get early access to monthly (if not weekly) updates on ongoing projects via the Patreon feed.
Gold Tier
$4 or more per animated video 1 patron
Along with Silver tier, you'll get advance access (typically up to a month before the general public) to some animation and 360 VR videos. Maybe a thumbs up from me if we ever meet.
Platinum Tier
$8 or more per animated video 0 patrons
Along with Gold tier rewards, you'll get access to exclusive content.  It' TBD but say HD wallpaper, a cameo of you as a minifig in future animations (excluding projects where your minifig doesn't fit in any scene).  I'll also be your friend on Facebook.  People still use that right?
Diamond Tier
$25 or more per animated video 0 patrons
Who are you? You are too generous. I can afford air conditioning this month.

Along with Platinum tier rewards, I'm opened to suggestions. Perhaps an AMA session? Blood of my first born? We'll work it out.

Maybe list you as a sponsor in the next video, promoting/featuring your YouTube channel, Facebook page, etc. in some capacity. Terms and limits have to be set, though, especially if you're a brand or company seeking to do product placements.
Goals
$4 of $100 per animated video
It takes time to render a 720p resolution video.  Imagine having to render at 1080p, or 4K.  But if this milestone is met and maintained, all future animation I haven't ready started rendering will be made in full HD (1080p).  You guys deserve Full HD and I'll give you Full HD once we reach this milestone.
