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.
