What's Deep Look?

Deep Look is a Webby-award-winning science and nature video series that shows you science and nature up close... really, really close. Every episode is filmed in glorious 4K, and scored with original music.

Why Do We Need Your Help?

We’re a member-supported show from KQED, a local PBS station in San Francisco. That means we need you– our loyal YouTube fans – to support us on Patreon so that we can grow.

Making these high-quality, mini-documentaries is super expensive.
And every 4-minute Deep Look episode takes 6-8 weeks to produce. Right now that means only 20 episodes a year... so we currently can't give you episodes year-round.

Also… it means we can't travel far from our home base of California, to pursue the most beautiful, weird and creepy creatures possible.

With your monthly support, we can bring even more shows to life.

(And - of course you'll get some nifty rewards too.)

Goals!

Are you in? Great! Here's what we'll do together.

$2,000 / month - Deep Look Goes to Oaxaca, Mexico –If we can reach this goal, Deep Look will travel to Oaxaca, Mexico, to film some extraordinary creatures! Like the cochineal bug, Dactylopius coccus, which produces the brilliant carmine red Van Gogh used in his masterpieces… and you might be eating in your strawberry yogurt. Or maybe Heloderma horridum, the venomous Mexican beaded lizard. Or the squirmy larva of the moth Comadia redtenbacheri ... you may have seen it at the bottom of a shot of mezcal, or sprinkled on tacos. Support us now, and you will help us decide which stories we film! :->

$5,000 / month - A BONUS Deep Look Episode – At this level, Patrons will help unlock the team’s ability to create an extra episode each year. Plus, you’ll get to help choose which extra episode we’ll produce!

$10,000 / month - Two BONUS Deep Look Episodes – At this level, we can bring you two extra episodes. That means you’ll be able to watch Deep Look all year around without any big breaks!

Let's do this. Love Deep Look? Don’t wait. Become a Patron Now!

Thanks,

The Deep Look Team: Craig, Josh, Gabi, Jenny, Lauren, Teodros, Kia and Seth
