Thank you for checking out this Patreon page. I have some big ideas for the future of this channel and you can help me to make them a reality! But first, let me introduce myself and what I'm all about:

Animation is a fascinating medium. I'm an animation producer/ director exploring the world of 2d animation and the variety of skills linked to animation.
 I have worked for clients around the world as an animator/ director/ producer. Now I am working to build a community of empowered artists by celebrating the most inspiring ideas, techniques and philosophies in the animation world. I call this project Animator Guild.
 Over the last two years I have been creating a video every two weeks - I now have over 100 free videos on my YouTube channel. I want to sustain and improve the channel to become the best provider of animation education on the internet! And now you can help to keep this going.

Your Patreon support helps to fund:
- less financial dependency on commissions / sponsorships
- Website hosting, maintenance and programming
- Commissioning music and buying music rights
- Better Equipment and Facilities
- Support with video editing
- Better research


Some exciting projects that may happen with your help:
- Extra tutorials! including an in-depth video course on how to animate a sword fight
- Completely re-vamped website with networking profiles and a public portal
- Animation tournaments and community projects with exciting prizes
- A physical Animator Guild book

- A new podcast series
-More Sakuga Studies

Exclusive content that only my Patreons will get access to:
- Extra bonus videos
- Early video viewings and animation sneak peaks
- Influence what videos get made next

- Sourcefiles and timelapse videos
- Name in the video credits

- Behind-the-scenes material

- Written blog posts
- extra audio sound effects and downloads


All tiers are only charged a maximum of twice per month. If this changes, I will let you know far in advance. Pledge only what you can afford.

This collection of sounds is a work in progress so you will get new sound effects sent to you when I release them.

Vote on video topics + Credits
$10 or more per per video 2 patrons
  • In this tier you will be able to vote on what videos are made and in what order.

This is not tuition

Mentorship
$75 or more per per video 0 of 3 patrons
  • I take you under my wing! We have a meeting at the end of every month at an agreed time and day. We look through what you have made that month and I offer helpful feedback, techniques and advice to help advance you to become a pro-level animator. The same as what I would do in my workshops, but on a recurring monthly schedule. You will also be able to send me tests during the week and receive written feedback and draw-overs if appropriate.

*Please note that the tier price is per video. So this would add to $150 per month

Goals
$106 of $150 per per video
How to Animate a SWORD FIGHT - a 3-part series.
This has been requested an insane amount of times! With this funding I will be able to take enough time out to make it one of the best tutorials you have ever seen.

I will be able to hire a part-time editor/ assistant to help out with the production of videos for the channel. That means more videos!
