Jonathan Kumar is creating Short Films

$13
per short
From 8th grade going, I started carrying around a family camera shooting pranks, parodies, and music videos. Our "screenings" were held on the little pop-out screen that came out of the camera during study hall. As a senior, I discovered this thing called "video editing", where you could download footage to a computer, mess around with it, and spit it back out. Woah. Here's my first edited short.

Since then, my expression of art has almost always been through film. From licensing content to “MTV’s Pranked!“ and “America's Funniest Videos", to completing a feature film set in India (Talim), to releasing shorts that have almost no redeemable value to 99.9% of the world's population.

I ask you to consider helping me in my art moving forward. Indeed, these will be the first dollars I've ever asked in producing content online. Being a patron allows you to support me in a small way financially each time I release a short (or occasional piece of writing, app, or physical product). It is and will always be optional for watching future stuff. You can bet there'll be exclusive perks for patrons too, and you'll be the first I go to for ideas. I look forward to creating more frequent, purposeful, and meaningful content as a result of your support.

*note: Not every video I create will be a Patreon release and subsequent donation – only the special ones, or those relevant to you. You can expect to give 2-3 times per month at the very most, and you can set a "cap" to limit the amount you give per month.

Patreon is a place to optionally support artists you appreciate:
1. Select a dollar amount you’d like to give your artist each time they publish a work
2. Notify your artist by filling out the patron form
3. Simply hang back for upcoming releases plus patron-only content
