Content creation has always been something I have loved, whether writing, drawing or painting.  In 2014 I discovered I had a true passion in the form of creating videos.  Not just any old video, but videos that allow me to express myself, videos that tell a story or are informative, or just plain fun.

In 2012, Elite Dangerous was announced - and this was to turn out to be far more than just a game for me, it became a way to unlock something I am truly passionate about.  I created a few random videos occasionally for Elite, and that soon evolved into something far more.  Elite carried me to somewhere very new; a sci-fi world I had always dreamed of.  More than that though, it allowed me to expand so many areas of my life.  On a professional level, I learnt editing and production skills.  On a personal level, I began to overcome my deeply rooted shyness and low self-confidence.  These are all things I am immensely grateful for.

My moniker "Obsidian Ant" is now very much a part of who I am.  More than that, a tremendous community has grown around my YouTube channel, and I am forever thankful to my audience for helping me make my work what it is.  

You can help me continue this process, by supporting me on Patreon.  Your donations will allow me to focus more time on creating content, which in-turn will allow me to improve and expand upon what I am able to offer.  I have been creating content for a number of years now, and plan on doing so for a long time to come.  Financial support will allow me to take this as far as I possibly can.

I will offer a credit at the end of each weekly news video in return for donations.

Thank you so much for watching, and for your kind support.

$630 of $3,000 per month
If I can get enough money to allow me to focus 100% of my time on creating content, I will be able to increase the frequency and quality of what I am producing.  I love creating these videos, and have many ideas to push the boundaries of what I am doing.  But this all takes time, and time is precious and limited.  With more money available to me, I will be able to free up more time to invest into making my channel the best it can be.

As with all my content, I want to do this Patreon page in a way which I feel is fair and balanced.  Therefore, I don't have any perks or benefits to offer for donating.  The reason for that, is because creating content is a passion for me - and I will always do that for free.  I don't believe in locking YouTube content behind paywalls or gating it in any fashion.  However, for people kind enough to donate, I will offer a credit in the form of their name, at the end of my weekly news videos - this won't reveal the amount pledged, but I feel it is a nice way of showing my appreciation.

All money received will feed back into my channel, allowing my to continue producing content and more importantly to expand upon what I already offer.  I work very hard on producing my videos, but supporting me would make the process far easier and enable me to focus on doing the thing I love; creating content for my viewers.
