Bold Donation Goofus

$8
per month
You're an especially kind person, and you get access to any behind-the-scenes pics, terrible takes, and clips I couldn't fit into the actual video.

Novelty Instrumentalist

$8
per month
You're helping me buy more instruments that I don't need. In addition to the behind-the-scenes content, you get downloads of all of the songs I personally make for my videos and streams, including the backing track, stems, and sound effects! You'll also get PDF versions of my scripts (if the video uses one) so you can see how the weird videos start!

Jorts Enthusiast

$10
per month
"With your support, every jean can be jort." - BDG. In addition to the rest, you'll be credited in the end slate of my videos, and I'll host *TWO* hourlong livestreams with you per month. One will be all about my process (e.g. songwriting, video editing) and the other is a wildcard (e.g. workshopping a new dance move, playing a game together, rambling about something I'm currently interested in, etc.)

About Brian David Gilbert

I am Brian David Gilbert. I make videos that are funny and musical and scary and sometimes all three at the same time.

This Patreon mainly helps support my YouTube channel. I will make at least one video a month, but sometimes the videos take too long or get too weird or become a bit too ambitious, which is what this Patreon is helping supplement! With your help, I can hopefully make longer and weirder and ambitious-er videos. It will also help give me a bit more time to collaborate with others or write things that don't work for my YouTube channel, but might work for TV, short films, or live shows (if those ever happen again).

If you can't subscribe but would like to support me in other ways, you can always subscribe to my YouTube or check out my Twitch exercise streams, the podcast I cohost, or my website. Thanks for stopping by!

--- FAQ ---

What type of behind-the-scenes stuff will you post/when will you post it?

Whatever/whenever! I'll post some in-progress stuff before videos come out, but I'll only post the spoiler-y bits (deleted scenes/pictures/videos of me doing bad takes of the songs) after the video goes live. Some videos might take a long time to script and produce, so those will have updates as I hit new milestones on them!

Is there an official Discord?

Nope! This is mostly because I rarely log onto Discord and don't think it would be a very good benefit, but it's also because I would feel supremely uncomfortable running a Discord devoted to the stuff I make.

What music will be released for download?

Only the stuff I have full rights to! This includes all the music I write for my own videos and streams, but it won't include songs I collaborate on (like the ones on Let's Make a Music) or songs I write for other projects (like The Altogether, or songs I wrote for Polygon videos).

But I will upload all new songs plus the instrumentals after the video is live. If there's enough interest, I can also upload the stems for anyone who wants to remix them!

Will the Jorts Enthusiast streams be available afterward if you can't catch them live?

Yes! All of the streams will be in an unlisted playlist on my YouTube, so after a few months, there will be a pretty solid backlog of hourlong videos of me goofing around. 

What's your favorite type of cream cheese?

I usually go for sun-dried tomato if they have it, but olive cream cheese is also fantastic.
