About

WELCOME TO LIKE STORIES OF OLD
Movies have always had a strong impact on me, they affect the way I look at the world and help make me a better person. With this channel I want to explore this boundary between film analysis and life lessons, because I believe that movies, just like the stories of old, contain valuable ideas and insights, and to better understand them is to better understand life.

VIDEO DETAILS
  • The basic structure of my videos is modeled after the academic case study; containing an analysis of a film or subject through a specific theoretical lens. I use the video essay format to present my findings because its audio-visual qualities allow me to bring my message across in a way that is not only insightful, but also emotionally resonant. 
  • Video length varies from shorter videos of about 5-8 minutes, to more in-depth analyses that can run up to about 20 minutes.
  • The goal is to release 1 or 2 videos per month.
  • For a complete overview of all my work you can visit my Youtube Channel



ABOUT ME

After studying Spatial Planning and Social Geography for my bachelor's degree, I got a master’s degree in Environmental Sociology with a minor in Philosophy. During this time, I was introduced to a lot of theories and philosophies that I would eventually discuss in my videos. Most importantly however, I learned the necessary academic skills that have allowed me to research new topics, critically evaluate information and build arguments, all of which are essential to writing essays. I got interested in making video essays because they give me more creative freedom to include elements beyond the written word, and I really enjoy exploring this boundary between intellectual efforts and artistic expression. 
Ultimately, I do what I do because I have the very genuine hope that what I have to say might have a positive impact on others, even if it is in the smallest way.

THE PATREON PROJECT
With your support I can free up more time to work on new content; I’m currently working flexible hours in a day-job that is taking up a bunch of time I’d rather spend editing, so the more I can make through Youtube/Patreon, the less hours I have to spend working. Raising enough money to be able to focus on my channel full-time would be an absolute victory. 

Much Gratitude!
Tom

I'm moving into a new house! My first proper one, which means I'll finally have the space to invest in a proper home studio and workplace. Think new microphone, new recording set-up, soundproofing... etc. This would be a huge step in making production more efficient, and the quality more professional.
