CJD Explains is a video series that explores and explains various topics.
Give us an example!From videos about the Shannara Chronicles and The Magicians (coming soon!) to deep dives and episode reviews of The Expanse and Krypton (also coming soon!), I provide context and explanation when the show doesn't. I'm your Novel to TV/Movie Whisperer.
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. Each episode deals with a central topic, top 10 moments in an episode, a deep dive into an interesting aspect of a story, or history that didn't make it onto the screen. Episodes like Where the Elves came from in Shannara and the History of the World of Shannara.
An example of a great "deep dive" video is linked below!
Why Patreon?I would much rather focus on creating compelling content that resonates with my audience than obsessing over analytics and gaming the YouTube system to make enough money to support the work I am doing. My goal with these videos is to build and engage with a community of people to create a safe, positive place for new ideas and conversations.
How often do you release content?It depends on the content. Episode reviews should come out once a week during a season, while my other, more in-depth videos come out every 3 - 4 weeks, given the amount of research, production, and editing that is involved.
How can we help?I would love to be a 100% patron fueled channel. I believe in patronage, especially in this new digital world we find ourselves in. Every dollar you give goes into making bigger and better episodes, covering new series!
Thanks and welcome aboard!
