I really can't thank you enough for supporting the changes I've made to the way I run the channel. Ditching sponsorships and doubling down on you guys has let me think about the work in a different way -- today's videos would never have happened without that.
"Which Planet is Closest" is a perfect example of the kind of idea I would not have followed down the path to completion before. I would have thought it wasn't long enough to be a 'real video'. But now, with your support, I'm free to follow what seems interesting, and I was really interested in this little asterisk to a future project -- and thus the video came to be.
And, the asterisk ended up with another asterisk on top of it, so here are a few thoughts on some details and ideas that didn't make it into today's animated video.
Thank you so much for your support,
