Hey there!

From videos about the Shannara Chronicles and The Magicians to deep dives and episode reviews of The Expanse, I provide context and explanation when the show doesn't. I'm your Novel to TV/Movie Whisperer.

This year (2020) I am starting a new journey, that of tv show creator. I'm developing a series of animated episodes that tell new stories set in the Shannara Television Universe. An "unofficial season 3" if you will. If this first season does well, I'll start outlining a season 4, and so on.

Who are you?

I'm Chris J. Davis. I'm a designer, technologist, writer and content producer based in San Diego, CA. I make episodic content that runs from 3 - 12 minutes long.

Why Patreon?

Making 3d animated content, even short content, takes a long time with a team of people, it's nearly impossible with just one person doing it. To really make this happen in a timely manner I need help, and to hire that help I need funds, which is where you come in.

How often do you release content?

Once we are rolling with completed episodes, they will hit my youtube channel every two weeks. The first season will have ten eleven-minute episodes.

How can we help?

Other than financially, you can help spread the word and get people to my channel (http://bit.ly/CJDExplainsSub) to watch my other videos and hopefully subscribe, which will help bring in more income, which will also help.

Thanks and welcome aboard!
