What is Mediocre Films?

Just a guy named Greg Benson who likes to have fun and talk about himself in third person. My prank and comedy videos have had about 500 million views since I started on YouTube in 2006. My goal is to try to make people's day better through positive pranks and fun social experiments.

Why Do You Need My Help?
I want to make videos with my loyal fans in mind rather than relying on YouTube's unpredictable algorithms. I want to make the kind of videos that you want to see from me. And along the way, pay my crew members respectable rates, reward people who appear in my videos with surprise gifts, and afford props, locations & other expenses. You'll be helping me make people smile, one "mark" at a time!

How Often Do You Upload Videos?
I try to upload once per week, but sometimes I skip a week or two. That's why I'm asking for your support per video instead of per month, to keep it fair! Plus, you can set a monthly maximum so you won't have to worry about exceeding your budget.

What Do I Get Out of This?
As a Patron, you'll not only have the satisfaction of knowing that you're helping me make comedy videos, but you'll receive many exclusive bonuses unavailable to the public! Plus you can leave a comment on this page and I'll personally reply back to you, because I'm just so glad you're here!

You'll have my sincere thanks, plus access to my Patron-only stream, which is where I will interact with my patrons and share cool content, such as video updates, pictures and all kinds of special stuff, just for you. And, oh, what the heck, how about I upload an exclusive monthly mp3 from the archives of my homemade comedy songs & sketches!?

Goals
$174 of $200 per Video
When I hit $200 I'm gonna go out and strike up weird conversations with strangers, casually fitting in as many names of my patrons as possible. If you pledge $1 per video or more, I'll try my best to say your name in the video! :-D
