Why Patreon?


Improvements: There are also areas I want to invest in, some require more time, e.g., learning a programming language create engaging visualizations and maps based on real-world data. Others require time and money, e.g. footage of real-world locations, driving tanks or handling machine guns. This usually requires at least 3 days, 2 days of travel and 1 day of recording.

Stability: I started with YouTube in 2016, since then I have seen various changes the adcopalypse, permant demonetization of educational videos like this. Patreon provides a stable base to improve my content, since extra money is spent in new equipment, trips, etc.

You: Several people asked me how to donate to my channel, additionally, since the YouTube comment section is quite toxic and some of you want to chat with like minded people, you can do this on Patreon or on Discord for the higher tiers.

What you will get / What I do

Basically, I produce around four content videos a month. Two of the will be on the main channel “Military History Visualized” and two of them will be on the secondary Channel, which will host answers to Patreon questions , short talks on important questions and also regular footage without visualizations.

$1,610 of $3,000 per month
More Real Life Footage from Museums and/or Historical Locations: Traveling takes a lot of time and also money. I would like to do more videos like the Flak Tower one or provide real-life images of various tanks and other vehicles in my videos. If I reach this goal, the financial flank is covered and I can focus on contacting various museums and other places to get proper access.
