About

WHAT I DO

Welcome to my Patreon page! I am so happy you’re here! I make illustrated history videos to spread the knowledge of Japanese history and foster appreciation for Asian cultures.

Here’s an example:
Go to a library and they can kill you with the books about Greek and Roman history if they threw them all at you like frisbees, but good luck trying to find books about Jomon Period Japan.

Japan fascinates me! One day I tried to look for videos on early Japan, and there wasn’t much. I thought, “Why don’t I make some?” Then I did. It started out as a hobby, something to squirt the creative juices from my head onto a screen, and to let people know the history of this unique country. I foresee the channel expanding to other countries and historical events.


YOU AND ME

The viewer response still amazes me. To think that people can find these videos, watch them, and like them enough to ask if they can give their hard-earned money to support the channel, that’s just bonkers. Life is hard, and money is hard to come by, that’s why I want you to know that I deeply appreciate every single dollar and please know that you are a generous person.

I dream of doing this full-time. I absolutely believe that the patronage model is the right model for independent artists. Patreon allows you to make a monthly donation to support the work that I do. You can see my goals. Patreon allows me to interact with you more, and at a more personal level. It gives you more control over video topics. I am your video slave*. Your wish is my command, master/mistress**.

Much love,
- Linh

* Linfamy does not condone slavery
** Your every wish is not exactly my command, I can only make videos

WOW! This is UNbelievable! The amount of support you’ve provided humbles me.

I will upgrade my computer to something more suited to making videos. My current machine is a dinosaur. Not like a cool Jurassic Park T-Rex, more like a creature born through gene editing but the worker sneezed into the petri dish and out comes a deformed dino-human hybrid that croaks “Kill me…” over and over again.

Alright fine, it’s not that bad, but it does often slow to a crawl during editing. An upgrade would stop that BS, allowing me to make videos faster. It would also improve rendering times.
