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 animation commissions
- 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!
-More Sakuga breakdown videos - such as Yutaka Nakamura
- 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!

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

- Sourcefiles and timelapse videos
- Official Animator Guild Mixtape

- Freebee audio sound effects
- Behind the scenes videos

- Patreon-only podcast episodes
- Written blog posts

- Name in the video credits
- Influence what videos get made next

 Rest assured, I will only make a maximum of two paid videos per month. If this changes, I will let you know far in advance. Pledge only what you can afford.
