About Tony Whelan

 I am thankful you see the potential of my filmmaking . 
 Donating even just the price of a cup of coffee a month makes a world of difference to my work .

So far with Patreon support we have taken the first steps in growing a space to make films about people who are trying to make a difference . People who encourage us to care about our planet . They have in common a desire to help us do better, to care a little more about the world around us . And when we care, then we are capable of change . 

Here's a trailer from my next film exploring the connection of magnificent Humpback Whales in Ireland and Iceland

My films are made to the best production values so every contribution no matter how small makes a difference.
I believe in this patronage model with all my heart, gathering together a big bunch of people who will have a stake in what I do . Who have an investment in getting our stories told . Like this one of Kevin & Trea Heapes

I film with passionate people in out of the way places. Your support makes it possible for me to get there. It also means I get to work with the best post production editors and audio mixers around to make great films.
Out of the way places like Beara Temperate Rainforest on the western seaboard of Europe

And if you are not ready to become a patron, maybe you know someone who is . Even just sharing my page and work is brilliant support too .

I hope I can exceed your expectations .
Thank you .
