What is MOMENTUM?

Hi, my name is Belho and I am the creator of MOMENTUM. The purpose of this project is to create short films and photographs that offer memorable (audio)visual journeys into awe-inspiring video game worlds.

After spending years critiquing gamesanalyzing game design or talking about the video game industry on Youtube (in french), I decided to try a new approach that would capture the artistic essence of these digital universes in order to let them speak for themselves.

While I strive to convey a personal and meaningful vision through my (audio)visual prose, I like to think that each of you will feel a unique set of emotions deeply related to your own sensibility and personal history.

I only hope that you will enjoy the ride as much as I love video games and celebrating their artistry.


Why do you need the money?
Creating and distributing the MOMENTUM videos and photos sure requires a lot of time and passion, but it also costs money:
  • First and foremost, every game featured in this project have to be bought, either at launch or during special sales.
  • In order to obtain the best image quality and constant 60 frames per second, I have to keep my PC configuration up to date. This also includes buying every now and then an additional hard-drive to store all raw video samples and screenshots. In the future, my dream would be to create all MOMENTUM materials in 4K!
  • A certain amount of money goes into the official MOMENTUM website, where all my videos and photos are available.
  • Finally, while all my videos are currently uploaded on Youtube, I would like to publish them on Vimeo PRO at some point in order to offer the best quality possible.







How often will I end up paying?
You pay per month. Depending on the type of game and the tools available, it can take between 3 and 6 weeks to create a new video. In between videos, I regularly post new photos on Twitter and my website, and exclusive photos here on Patreon for those who pledge 3$. So you get new things to look at every month, but in the circumstance that I don't publish a video in a month, I won't charge anyone for that month.

Will I get previous Patron-only content when I subscribe?
Yes, but only after your first payment has been processed, which happens at the beginning of the month.
