is creating Video Essays

WHAT I DO:

My name is Rafa, and I make video essays for YouTube. It's my hobby––something I do in the irregular gaps in my schedule because I love doing it. Consequently, it's also something I do very infrequently. I think it's time for that to change.

WHY PATREON?

What I want for the channel is simple: I want to create more content more often, and I want to add voices that aren't my own. With frequent collaborators and a Patreon community to help fund this project, I will be able to devote more time to not only write all the essays I have sitting in my brain right now collecting dust, but also to research new subjects that I otherwise wouldn't have time for.

"WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME, PAL?"

Well, aside from helping me create a regular, steady stream of content instead of waiting and wondering if maybe I've died, you'll be getting some exclusive extras the other stingy saps won't have access to. Right now I'm only offering three reward tiers, but I expect that to grow as the channel grows.

THANK YOU!

To all my subscribers, fans, and patrons, thank you so much for supporting me and my channel. You could never understand how much your interest and encouragement means to me. You keep me going, you give me hope, and I could never thank you enough. <3

Tiers
Production Assistant
$1 or more per Video Essay
Free download of the music Jameson Nathan Jones has composed specifically for my channel, PLUS early access to new videos one week before being published to the public.
Line Producer
$5 or more per Video Essay
Everything in the previous tier, plus access to an exclusive podcast where I capture my unfiltered reactions and reflections on every movie I catch in theaters.
Supervising Producer
$10 or more per Video Essay
Everything in the previous tiers, plus access to special written content, such as hot takes on Hollywood trends and some of my unproduced screenplays. PLUS, access to assorted knickknacks (like my fan edits of films) AND the ability to vote on which video essay I should work on next!
Goals
$23 of $500 per Video Essay
This would allow me to upload at least once or twice a month, and may very well allow me to drop one of my part time jobs so I can devote more time to researching topics that are new to me.
