Welcome to by Patreon page! Thanks so much for stopping by. 
You're probably wondering what this is all about. Who is this Nate guy? and what is he doing here, of all places? Well I'm about to tell you. 
First of all, if you're not a fan of reading, you can just check out the video. I answer some of the common questions flying through your head right now. But if you prefer to read, then keep reading. OR do both. You don't have to choose just one. 

WHO AM I?
My name is Nate and I like to make films. 

WHAT KIND OF FILMS DO I MAKE? 

Lots of kinds, but my favourite kinds are music videos and comedy sketches. Sometimes I also film live events and make something out of that, I just finished a TV show for Bell Fibe TV1 called Haunted Huronia, and I even have a feature length movie that I made a few years ago. (you can download it once you subscribe to my Patreon)

WHY DID I CHOOSE PATREON?
Filmmaking is an art, and as with many arts-based careers there are a lot of ups and downs. Especially when it comes to finances. Sometimes I don't know when the next check is going to come in. This can make life very stressful. I always wished that there was a way for creators like myself to bring in a regular monthly income... and that's how I found Patreon! 

IS IT FREE MONEY?
No. Not even close. I will be, and already am, working very hard to build this into a sustainable, entertaining, and valuable chanel. I have been producing local content for my community for over ten years and always at a reduced or non-existent rate. This is simply a way for my supporters to be able to show some monetary love so I can continue to create, and so I don't have to move my family into a van down by the river. 
 
WHAT KIND OF PROJECTS DO I HAVE IN MIND?
I have no shortage of ideas. I am always thinking of new things that I want to do. That's why the primary focus of my projects will be on music videos and short films/comedy sketches. I love these types of projects because each one is different. I get to try new ideas, experiment a little, and they are the projects I am always the most excited about. Plus, they give me a way to help local musicians and performers (Did I mention I am on the board of a local musical theatre company and a member of a local comedy troupe?).
However, I also have ideas for more series-style projects. One is a short doc-style music talk show that is already in pre-production. Also, the Haunted Huronia team has more spooky places we want to visit and stories we want to share. And finally, a new weekly vlog dedicated to exploring my community in a new and interesting way. It'll definitely be an interesting ride...
I hope you subscribe so you can follow along.

You are such an awesome fan that the only way I could possibly thank you is to make a film for YOU. You give me the topic - it could be just about anything; you, your business, your cat... as long as the topic is accessible and ethical, I'll make a film about it for you. The only rule is that I get to decide how the film is made and how it turns out in the end. But I'll let you take a look before it goes out in the world. 


oh, and you also get the stuff in the other tiers.
