Cyborg Zebra is creating Videos

patron
I'm a producer/director living with chronic illnesses, particularly a sudden cardiac arrest condition and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. I make videos showing how my joints creak and crack and discuss what it is like living with these conditions. I will be expanding my content to better depict a "day in the life" with chronic illness and also include more compilation videos of how my body reacts differently to these daily activities.

Videos will include:
knuckle cracking compilations
vlogs
one off on topics chosen by Patrons

My content production will be increased to accommodate Patrons. Right now my goal is to create 10 minutes of content per month. This will be in the form of multiple videos and is only the goal I absolutely need to hit. If I do not hit it, I will pause the funding until the next month. You will only be charged if I hit the target.

AS A GOAL for bringing in more Patrons, Once I hit 25, I will extend my production to 25 minutes of content per month. If I get to that goal, we'll look at stretch goals to further the content and have polls for Patrons to help play a more active role in choosing what topics I cover and what kinds of videos I make. 

And more. This is a new thing for me, so let's see how it grows and develops together.

FAQ:

WHY AM I STARTING A PATREON?
I just started grad school. This means that my schedule is radically changing. My free time isn't really going to be more than it was or less, it's more going to be distributed radically differently. I was traveling for work over the last 2 years and my 40hr per week schedule felt more like 80 in that I was spending so much time in transit as opposed to being home in between being in the office. This may help my transition to grad school in being less daunting of a time commitment, BUT it means that the time I can dedicate to other things has to be prioritized and side hustles/ a means of supplementing my loans would usually have to take slot 2 (under slot 1 which is school).
HOWEVER, I genuinely want to keep my top priorities in the realm of filmmaking and this channel is a huge component of that. While finding new and interesting ways to document my body's progression through my illness I'm expanding my ability to document and share my story. Thank you for helping begin that journey. 


WHAT IF I DO NOT MAKE MY GOALS?
If I do not make the Patron count goal I'll still upload to the channel but It will be closer to just over 10 minutes worth of content per month than closer to 25.

If I do not make MY END of the bargain, I will pause the Patreon and pause any/all payments.

WILL MORE BE OFFERED IN THE TIERS LATER?
Hopefully, yes. I'm new to this and don't want to promise more than I can commit to at this time. However, as more ideas are submitted/tossed around on my end and on your end, I'm open to exploring more ways to give back to those who choose to support my project.
