Short story: If you'd like to help me release music and music videos more regularly, as well as help me boost the quality of the videos I do release - please consider becoming my Patron and you'll be doing just that!
Not so short story...
Because the majority of my supporters are spread somewhere between South America - Indonesia and indeed nowhere near South Africa; YouTube is currently the best way for me to perform for everyone that can't see me LIVE.
Myself and a group of 2-3 incredibly talented friends of mine have handled every element of most of my videos to date. From composing, recording, producing, mastering of music to styling the videos (set design, make-up, bodypainting), to direction and filming to editing and special effects - we do it all ourselves and in my friends' cases - they do it all for me. I have used production companies in the past but it would have been too expensive to carry on doing so and release videos as regularly as I'd like to. My friends and I learn something new every time we work together and more importantly we all love what we do.
- I'd really like to be able to start paying all the creative crazies that help me more/at all (even if it's just a tiny amount) for their efforts
- Up the production levels on future videos - maybe with your help I can do just that!
- My ultimate goal is to one day be able to afford to travel and put on real life performances near the people that want to see me perform the most. I need to keep producing videos to get myself out there and stay creative (and sane) and keep entertaining you guys. I’m a performer first and foremost; if you guys help me out even the smallest amount could lead to the biggest mostest specialist opportunities someday.
Please consider becoming my Patron for $1 per music video (only if you can afford it/have the means to do so!)
You can set your monthly limit as low as you'd like so even if I release a ridiculous number of music videos in a month you won't go over budget. I'd like to try and release one music video a month. Vlogs and any extras do NOT count as Patreon funded videos - I'll only claim the loot for music videos of covers as well as originals that I need help to produce.
If what I do excites or inspires you - and you can't afford to be my Patron then pretty-please just share my music and videos with the world and I'll love you anyway.
Thanks so much for reading all of this.
Ps. Check out the rewards you get in return for Patreon-izing me, and do let me know if there are other things I could offer that you guys would appreciate...
