Chu! Bam! Pow! is on Patreon!
But what is Chu! Bam! Pow! ?
Chu! Bam! Pow! is a YouTube channel (two of them!) that provides gaming, anime, and other geek-centric content several times a month! Let's Plays are the main feature with a side of Vlogs and occasional special features and editorial pieces.
Chu! Bam! Pow! is also on Twitch and YouTube Gaming, live streaming fun that connects with the viewer!
Chu! Bam! Pow! is also Chu's voice acting dream come to life! With your inspiration and encouragement, I've been able to pursue voice acting seriously and have been able to grasp some truly life changing opportunities, voicing crazy vitamin commercials and even video games!
And I can't forget to mention that Chu! Bam! Pow! hosts a monthly online international anime club, Chu's Crunchy Wacht Club, that has taken anime discussion to a new level! With so many views and opinions, conversations are always fun and a bit surprising!
It's All About Community
Every facet of Chu! Bam! Pow! is inspired by the community and my current goal is to get even more involved, post content and stream more frequently, and dedicate more time to giving back to the folks who have helped me get this far!
That means dedicating more time and resources to the channel, exploring how to "level up" my videos with better editing and sound and being able to release a wider variety of content.
I would love to be able to release more "Guide to the Ecchi-verse" over on After Dark as well as post more anime reviews to the main Chu! Bam! Pow! channel. I've also had several projects in the works that I just haven't been able to get off the ground.
And of course, I've always wanted to have more community-centric content like videos from Community Game Days, better edits and uploads of Wacht Club, and interactive games on Discord like voice over training!
How Can Patreon Help Us Get There?
While I can't say that the "more money = more content" equation is completely true, Patreon funds could help lend some stability that Chu! Bam! Pow! desperately needs to keep afloat.
As it stands, monetization through YouTube isn't granting CBP! the ability to keep itself funded. I have had to fund CBP! through my own personal account as well as funds generated from voice acting. This means when I spend time and money on CBP! content, it's more of a guilty pleasure than something I can rationalize as responsible.
I would love to be able to turn this around, making even better content that I can be proud of and you can too, content that I hope can one day stand on its own! I would love CBP! to be in the limelight when it comes to my time and energy again, not something that has to constantly be placed on a back burner.
And thankfully CBP! isn't a super costly venture (most of the time)! So even a small stream of steady funding could make a large difference in the way I am able to work on videos and extra fun content!
Where Does the Money Go?
Equipment: Paying the balance remaining on the CBP! Laptop, keeping microphones and headset equipment up and running, and improving equipment used for streaming for a better streaming experience for viewers!
Art Assets: Continuing to create community wallpapers as well as art and branding assets to be used in videos, on the website, and maybe even merch in the near future!
Online: Hosting the website and keeping it up and running, as well as possibly hosting and promoting new content!
