Who We Are?

We are Digging Deeper, a two man team that likes looking at a film and trying to see if something else is lying beneath its surface. Sometimes we dig pretty deep. Maybe too deep?

We have been incredibly fortunate to have our content posted on Io9, Indiewire, One Perfect Shot, The Film Stage, PopOptiq, No Film School, and other wonderful sites.

What Type Of Videos?

Movies are pretty great aren't they?  We sure think so. And just as there are countless genres and types of movies, our video essays take a broad approach to film analysis and interpretation. 

While our analysis will sometimes pertain to the technical aspects of movies, and touch on aesthetic observations of the filmic form, we prefer to delve into the murky and sometimes treacherous depths of deciphering subtextual or subliminal meanings from a particular film or filmmaker. From Netflix-Raptors, to Beigenicio Del Toro, to Deistic Parrots and Dick Trucks, our ideas may not be exactly what you're used to hearing, but we hope that's what will make them different.

We also have a podcast, on which we answer questions about our videos or about films current or past, as well as talk movies, T.V, and other pop-cultural non-M. Night Shyamalan-related happenings. Any questions or suggestions we receive regarding our videos will be fielded there, so we invite you to jump right in to the big heart-shaped jacuzzi tub that is our podcast and let our voice-jets massage your aching eardrums and melt your worries away.

How Often Do You Post Videos?

We try to post one video every two weeks. Key word, "try". As much as we try to avoid it, sometimes real life happens.

What does the money go towards?

Movies, microphones , royalty-free songs, software subscriptions, maybe a little liquid creativity. Heck, if we get enough financial support we'd love to be able to do this as a full time job!

Furthermore, we don't like to hide content behind ads, no one enjoys ads. Unless you are an AD-dict, haaaaaaa. That's why we're going the Patreon route. Our lowest tier is just two dollars a month, and if you'd like to donate just a wee wittle bit more, we provide transcripts for our videos. That's right, we get a teeny bit of your money, and you get a transcript of our video. Just imagine the possibilities.

What's that? You want more perks? Well we've got good news for you, you crazy perk-a-maniac. With a contribution to our third tier, you not only get a transcript of our video essay, but a digital download of it as well, so you can get your Digging Deeper on even if all the Internet routers in the world are blown to bits following some sort of apocalyptic Internet-router uprising. And if, for some bizarre reason, you feel so inclined as to contribute to our highest tier, you'll find yourself receiving something so incredibly amazing you won't be able to believe it really is what it really is. But it is. Really.

Final Words:

That's a bit morbid... Well anyway, here goes... Thank you so much for your support, enthusiasm, poignant critique and commentary of our work so far. We are incredibly pleased and grateful to be able to share our passion for movies with you, and we're so excited to show you what we have planned for the ~future~.

You can fall into a sweet slumber to the sounds of us narrating your favourite films in our mellow dulcet tones. We are super serious. We will do this.

Plus all the other perks. Obviously.
Goals
$2 of $1,500 per month
If we reach our goal of $1,500 a month, we will host and film a Digging Deeper cooking show, where we will make one movie-themed meal. You, our benevolent supporters, can vote on which movie we should watch/use as inspiration for our unique dish.

Oh, and I guess better microphones! Pro SoundCloud account (actually this has been accomplished, ignore)! More time to dedicate to the video essays!
