I make reviews on YouTube. My ambition is to not simply “review” things but to talk about moments in media that resonate with us as human beings. I can’t think of anything more boring than just making a video that goes, “I saw this movie. It was great.” Everything I write begins with the goal of forming a connection between a piece of media and a person’s heart. Or short of that, to generate discussion. Or, short of that, penis jokes.
Tiers
The Scooby snack tier
$2 or more per month 179 patrons
Unlock exclusive content like the Patron feed, where you can read all my nonsense reasons why I haven't gotten the new video done yet!


Your comments to the videos posted on Patreon will all get a response from me. Though I can't promise they will be either witty or insightful.


All Patron's who have also linked their Discord accounts to Patreon will be branded 'Rogue Demon Hunters' on the Passionate Nerds Discord server.


It's a McDonald's double cheese burger a month! And you don't have to feel guilty about Adblock.

Includes Discord rewards
Monthly Google Hangout discussion
$5 or more per month 74 patrons
Access to a Google Hangout with me, Jack, and Jess (when they can swing it) where we'll be chatting about a specific episode/topic together. These hangouts will be the last Saturday of every month and streamed to the YouTube channel. Next one will be Saturday, October 27th at 5pm (Mountain Time.)  The episodes we're discussing are Passion and I Only Have Eyes For You.


Invites will be sent via Patreon inbox or posted in the Patreon feed. Hangouts will be live-streamed to the YouTube channel.

Includes Discord rewards
Vote on future movie reviews
$7 or more per month 8 patrons
Each month, all patrons at this tier and above are given the chance to vote on a movie review. It may be a pick the summer blockbuster review, or new streaming content on Netflix, or a classic, depending on the time of year.
 
Includes Discord rewards
A performance of your choice
$10 or more per month 29 of 50 patrons
A voice clip of me reading a bit of dialogue or performing a piece of your choice. Whatever you like. Poetry. Monologues. Song lyrics. 2 minutes maximum. Clean. No advertisements. Perk resets every 6 months. These take a little time to produce. I've been turning them into videos so, be patient with me.

I may also edit these on stream, simply because I edit more efficiently while doing so. These will be posted to the channel.


A playlist of some of the currently completed requested recordings:

Commentary Tracks
$20 or more per month 2 patrons
Starting in November, we will be recording one commentary track per month and, eventually, selling them on the website. Donor's at this tier will get free access to the entire library of tracks, along with all the previous tier benefits.


November's commentary track: Buffy the Vampire Slayer the Movie

Includes Discord rewards
Annotated Scripts
$25 or more per month 4 patrons (sold out!)
Each previously mentioned perk plus a printed script of your favorite video on the channel signed, with handwritten notes by me. A sort of script-commentary track. Resets every six months.
Includes Discord rewards
Feedback and coaching
$75 or more per month 0 of 4 patrons
Are you working on a script or video project? Would you like an honest private critique of your work or some quick instruction on how to do what I do? At this tier we'll review up to an hours worth of your content each month and provide our notes and feedback.
Includes Discord rewards
Pick a review
$125 or more per month 0 of 3 patrons
Every three months, choose something that I will create a video review of. No more than 6 hours of content total (so Law and Order is out.) The review I make will be an honest one of no minimum length, but it will be published to the channel so I can promise no attacks of the lazies.
