We are Ismahawk! A small group of independent filmmakers led by Danny Shepherd and Jeremy Le. We've been creating videos for YouTube since 2012 and with the goal of providing better quality content with each video we make. You may recognize us from the widely popular superhero fan series, "Nightwing: The Series", our head to head web series "Minute Match-Ups", or our weekly podcast "HawkTalk". 



You may be wondering: "Why Patreon?" Aside from "Nightwing: The Series", every other video on our channel has been self-funded. Our goal has always been to create innovative, Hollywood quality videos that are more epic and amazing than the one before. Each new production requires a bigger and bigger investment of our time and resources, all while working day jobs to support ourselves. 

Here are some expenses for an average Short Film.

  • Costumes
  • Props
  • Hair and Make-Up
  • Production Design
  • Location Fees
  • Location Permits
  • General Liability/ Stunt Insurance
  • Gear Rental/Purchase (Lenses, Cameras, Grip Gear, C-Stands, Etc.)
  • Editing Assets (New Software, Stock Assets, Stock Music, etc.)
  • Data Storage (Hard Drives, Flash Drives, SSDs, etc.)
  • Cast/ Crew Fees
  • On Set Food Catering
  • Custom Music By John Scigulinsky

Your Patreon support allows us to focus our time and effort on what really matters: making videos. Every cent you donate through Patreon is a cent that frees up our time to work on providing you quality content. This means the more Patreon support we receive, the more content we are able to create and provide it more often!



We have a variety of great rewards for fans of all kinds! From Patreon Exclusive Videos, Community Live-Streams, and even Exclusive Merch, there’s something for anyone and everyone who helps us out. Scroll down and check out what your support will get you!
While our videos are often love letters to the fandoms we love, they’re also love letters to you guys, our supporters. With your support we can create some truly next level projects! We promise not to let you down!
