My name is Mike and I'm the man behind the YouTube channel 'Mike the Eye Films'. In this age of junk food media, my life goal is to use my passions and talents to create important, educational, interesting and entertaining videos. The last six years of my life I have worked proudly for PBS, but I am now working towards getting back to creating content on my own; finding and researching stories around that interest me for short mini-docs and award winning feature length documentaries like 'Dignity Harbor' and sharing them with the masses. This Patreon page will allow me to focus all my energy on creating higher quality YouTube videos and channel growth.

My current historical mini-documentary series, Word on the Street, explores the origin stories of important streets in my home City of St. Louis. These videos usually involve well over 40 hours of work per episode, including pre-production, research, script writing, filming and editing. I hope to one day expand to exploring more national streets.

My other current main series is Stories from the Path, a project that honors one of my fathers final wishes for me to start journaling my adventures so they don't get lost in the past. This series is also important to me because I'm afraid the tradition of spoken word stories is fading away in the digital age, so it allows me to hone my story telling skills and present them in away that encourages/challenges people to sit down and focus on one topic for more than a couple of minutes.

For now I've decided to accept pledges on a per project basis, since there may be times where I may not post as much as others and I wouldn't feel right taking money from you on a month where I didn't release anything. Currently I post at the minimum of 2 videos per month, and never more than 4 videos.

I decided against tiered pledge goals, and instead no matter what you pledge, whether it's just a dollar or 100 dollars, you will get all the rewards I'm offering: behind the scenes posts, Patreon exclusive episodes of Stories from the Path, 4k extended scenes from episodes, and more! Thanks!
