Who I am & what I do
Hey, everyone! My name is Liam Alexandre, and I'm a videomaker. I've been making things for YouTube consistently since I was 12. Since then, I've made vlogs, music, sketch comedy and more, none of which I'm especially proud of, and so I decided in April 2015 that it was time to move on from these things and start a new chapter. For this reason, I deleted almost all of my old videos and have started from scratch to pursue my real passion, which is film. See, I don't want to sound pretentious and call myself a "filmmaker", because I'm not. Being a filmmaker takes years of hard work and often a formal education, neither of which I've accumulated, and I don't do this for a living (for the moment).

Why you should sponsor me
I'm not a professional, I'm just some kid with a camera who loves what he does and wants to do it all the time. I have so much ambition, and to get to where I want to be with all of this, one thing I absolutely need is equipment. I'm currently saving up for new lenses and a camera, as well as a computer to edit on. These will all be instrumental in the creation of a short film I hope to have out by May 2016. Not getting paid for the work I do means that I have a budget of essentially zero, so it's difficult to build up a portfolio. I'm hoping this campaign will allow me to afford some more equipment, so as to continue doing what I love.

Sorry that this was so cheesy. Expect less cheese in the future. Thanks for reading, and don't forget to be awesome.

If you donate $2/video, I'll send you a unique script for a very old, unreleased video, and I'll make you a personal thank-you video.

Here's a video where we read some of these scripts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPWv56fse_8

Thanks for the support! If you follow through on two payments or more under this deal, I'll send you a bunch of 5x7 glossy photos I've taken while making videos, and a DVD featuring tons of my favorite music and a May 2015 never-released GettingThereTV video.

I'll promote your product, channel, company, etc. once a month! Must be SFW, and I'll only promote things I find cool - like your thing, probably! I'll also send you a DVD featuring tons of my favorite music and a May 2015 never-released GettingThereTV video.
Goals
$28 of $50 per 4 videos
I've made a handful of shorts in the past, namely RWAbots and the Montreal Underground series. I have an idea for a new short that's much darker and higher in production value than the last few, and I'm honestly incredibly excited to make it. However, as with any elaborate short film, I need a budget. This includes lighting, a production team and props, among other things.

[SUCCESS!]

May 8, 2015: thank you guys so much for funding this! I never expected to get to this point in the funding. After numerous delays for various reasons, the short film is now officially being worked on! We're getting a cast together, and this is really exciting for all of us. Most of the income from this page is going straight into pre-production of the short film, which we're hoping to have out in April 2016. It's a long way away, I know, but I assure you it will be worth it. Accompanying the short film will be a 15-minute "making of" video.
