I'm Dustin Paddock, and I make the JoeBots.  (Watch videos at the YouTube channel, follow on , and see more at JoeBots.com)

I want people to love watching JoeBots, and every now and then to pick up something they didn't know about robotics.  I want to continue to making JoeBots and keep the videos fresh, fun, original, and meaningful.  Your support makes you a part of JoeBots and that goal.  

I have seen that people can become informed while being entertained. Through story, people can learn about the scientific world around them, conquer fears, and as a society all rise together.  The JoeBots' story begins with them not knowing why they were first made, and afraid that if they don't find their mission, or purpose, that they'll become doorstops.  As the JoeBots search for answers, they will vicariously be introduced to a world of science, technology, and innovation.  

The idea for JoeBots has been brewing for several years.  I have developed a rich back story, numerous, diverse characters, and plenty of story opportunity.  But I'm just starting out, and so are the JoeBots, so things look a little crude for now, and we only have two characters (who already want upgrades!).  Much more is planned.  

So they're on a mission... to find their mission.   Along the way, they will explore and learn, but most of all, entertain.

Won't you please join JoeBots and support us on our mission?

Goals
$11 of $1,250 per JoeBots video.
$5,000 per month will help me do this full time.  
I aim to make one video per week on average. Your "per-creation," or "per-video" support motivates me to keep that pace, but also allows you to set a maximum per month.
Production finances are nearly zero since I produce by myself, but time is the enemy.  Support at this goal level would eliminate the need for a "day job."  
Should I be fortunate enough to exceed my goal, the money would go towards a new motorcycle-- no wait, are you still paying attention?-- would go towards more videos and better videos by hiring people who can help, and by using better equipment for better... everything.
