-- WHAT IS THE DIRECTORS SERIES? --
In addition to the videos, I maintain an extensive essay journal that’s housed on the project website, where you can find my thoughts on many more directors and films beyond what is covered in the videos. With your help, I plan on expanding the range of content even further to include eBooks, podcasts, and even a second video series that will provide another angle of exploration into the great works of cinema.
Having grown the project for over five years now, I’ve reached the upper limits of what I’m capable of achieving through sheer determination and hard work alone. However, I have ambitious plans for expanding the scope and audience of the project— in order to achieve that, I’ll need your help. I’ve identified a few goal tiers that correspond to these plans:
$500– achieving this level of patronage will enable me to begin the active process of compiling and releasing a series of eBooks on your favorite directors. If you decide to pledge at a certain level (see the Rewards section), then you won’t have to pay a dime for a single one— each new eBook will arrive on your digital doorstep for free on the day of release.
$1000- achieving this level of patronage will enable me to develop and release a companion video series called SHORT CUTS, each episode of which will run 5-10 minutes and dive deep into the artistry behind some of the most iconic sequences in movie history.
$2000- achieving this level of patronage means that anything is possible! The project can expand into even more avenues, while building a strong platform to create original work under the FilmFrontier banner.
Your sponsorship would not only afford me more resources and time to release new video essays more frequently, it would allow me to connect directly with you in an engaging dialogue. My ultimate goal is to create an expansive chronicle of cinema’s most important voices while providing aspiring filmmakers with a variety of career templates they can consider while forging their own paths. As such, your support is an invaluable contribution towards achieving that end.
