DotaCinema is creating Youtube Videos

Hey guys, this is SUNSfan with an introduction to...the DotaCinema Patreon.

We've really tried to avoid this for the last couple of years, but we think it is finally time. First let me start off by saying that DotaCinema was never created for the money. Hell, we've been running on fumes from a financial perspective for a long time now.

But reality has set in. We can't really continue to prioritize the channel without making some profit anymore. Long story short, Youtube has changed the way money is made on their platform. And unfortunately for us, it currently caters to "Lets Plays"  and other long content that you can typically record and upload in a flash. As you probably know, our channel consists of content that takes an extraordinary amount of time to make. This is the timeline for most of our videos:

Replay Submission -> Replay Watching -> Replay Rating & Organizing -> Video Recording -> Audio Recording -> Video Editing -> Video Upload

So after this process & the expenses to pay people to do it (along with the fact that 80%+ people use adblock), we're left with very little money. One could say that we should get with the times and just create longer videos that could make us more money. We've dabbled a bit in that, but our identity is Spotlight Videos, Montages, and Fails of the Week. I'd rather make videos I enjoy myself than cater to what makes us money.

We appreciate anything you can afford to give.  At the end of the day, DotaCinema is and has always been our passion project. Thanks!
