Greetings and salutations! Welcome to my Patreon page!

WHO AM I?
My name is Matt M. Lucas, and I go on the internet by my initials. I'm a video editor and journalist, but in my free time I've been making media analysis videos on the internet. These videos are called MML's Commentaries: a mixed bag of a show which aims to bring a new perspective or make an argument about a particular piece or genre of media.

Some of my favorite videos include:


WHY GIVE ME MONEY?
MML's Commentaries is and always will be free for the public to watch. The only reason this page exists is to provide an avenue for people who want to donate to do just that.

That said, know that money earned through Patreon will go towards financing future videos. This is more than just simple equipment upgrades, by the way. In fact, the last time I made a video on a zero budget was in May 2017.

If you decide to pledge, the main thing you'll get access to is behind-the-scenes material. This includes, but is not limited to:
  • Access to full scripts for MML's Commentaries videos before the official release.
  • Behind-the-scenes material, from video and audio clips to graphics and motion templates.
  • Drafts and snippets of scripts for upcoming projects.
  • Scrapped or incomplete material that is unlikely to ever turn into a finished project.

WHAT ARE MY GOALS?
I love making videos. I consider my media analysis projects to be a true passion of mine, and I only want to make them bigger and better. My field isn't known for high salaries, so my ability to fund that passion is limited. Hopefully this, along with YouTube's ad revenue, will begin to open up a secondary revenue stream which I can pull from to make my craziest ideas become a reality.

In tandem with that goal, I also take pride in my degree and career in news media. This creates an issue when asking for funding like this, as the element of bias comes into play. I want my work on YouTube to affect my work in journalism as little as possible. As such, I won't be looking at the list of people who pledge, nor how much they give. I also won't be paying attention to or responding to comments on Patreon in the same way I do on YouTube. I appreciate your pledges greatly, but I can't know who gives me what if I don't want to sacrifice my journalistic integrity.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.
I still cannot believe that anyone would ever want to give me money to continue producing content. That's incredible.

This is the only pledge tier. In exchange for your generosity, I'll give you a look behind-the-scenes of my videos with scripts, previews, and other similar content. It's the least I can do.
Goals
$14 of $1,000 per month
In the extremely slim chance that I reach this goal, I'll make a critical analysis of Martin's potato bread. Seriously, that bread is legendary.
