Hello everybody! I'm InTheLittleWood also known as Martyn and welcome to my Patreon.

You likely already know that I'm a content creator on YouTube and partnered streamer on Twitch, I've run both of these pages for around 8 years now.

The platforms I upload to have gone through an awful lot of changes and I reeeeally want to stop throwing away content that I feel is fun/creative because I'm worried they'll negatively impact my growth and upset the algorithm due to my tastes being so varied.

With your support, I could have a comfortable base to get by on and claim back that confidence!



1. I've been a bit of a stubborn git over the years and never wanted to entrust my content to a third party to put together but during my honeymoon I trialed a few editors and the results were solid.

I'd love to hire an editor whether that be full time or freelance. This would free up sooooooo much time for me to work on more specialist content like music videos, maybe a podcast, community events with you doods and simply streaming more (long form let's plays are viable again!)

(I come from a live broadcast background in radio so getting back to those roots would be rad)



2. Song parodies + original music videos have been some of the most well received and creatively fulfilling pieces of work I've made this past decade. I, WANT, TO, MAKE, MORE, SONGS!

Problem is though, the visual aspect of these is VERY time consuming and I'm not the most gifted when it comes to cinematography. Sure I could get some after effects visualizer but my writing style is quite literal so visuals are important for me.

Having a little pool of money to give to a talented cookie out there would be an absolute game changer.

If all I have to worry about is writing the lyrics, picking an instrumental and doing some wonderfully detailed MS Paint storyboard shots then we're golden :D

(I already have a few sources for instrumentals + one or two producers who can mix things together for me. That of course costs money but I use a combination of previous track sales and my own money to cover those costs)



3. It's a selfish reason and please don't read this in a guilt trip tone, it's just facts, but with your help I think I could be a lot happier.. I've been 'on the grind', doing everything alone now for 8 years and that's something I'm proud of, I've brought a lot of happiness to others (according to chat, social media and donation messages) and my media skill set across the board is heightened but in exchange for that I've sacrificed a lot.

I don't have weekends. I barely have evenings. When a trip or family occasion is coming up I'm filled with dread over the extra hours I'll have to do before hand rather than excitement to see loved ones and when I get there, I'm just exhausted the whole time. I live and breathe this job to a very unhealthy degree and that needs to change.

If I could lighten my workload but provide you with the same, if not larger volume of content on topics I that really enthuse me, then that's a start!

Freeing up time to live an actual life away from the computer with friends/family and bring that energy with anecdotal stories back in to my content, that's the ultimate goal. It'd be a dream scenario and a win-win I reckon.



To conclude..

That's all the cards on the table for my Patreon. I have to admit, I've always had it in my mind that setting something like this up would be a last resort option, to cling on to being a content creator just that bit longer. I always told myself it was a moment of defeat (still can't help but feel that way even as I write this), that's why I've held out so long. Recently though I've spoken to other creators and plenty of you doods who have ensured me that this is a perfectly normal revenue stream in today's digital state and that it's important to diversify. Cheers.

If you have any suggestions for tier rewards you'd like to see then I'm all ears! I want to give back to you all but equally not fill my new found time with insane patron responsibilities, otherwise we'd be back to square one.

(Some ideas I've got noted down from our chats are special merch discounts, exclusive patron merch at higher tiers, credit sequences on videos etc.)

We'll start slow and simple then if the numbers grow we can expand on all fronts!

Thank you so much for reading + hopefully supporting me, have a lovely day :)
