Ad block Absolution
per month
Ads are, for the most part, turned off for subscribers and only turned on after 30 days online, but hey you are absolved of guilt for using Adblock.

You will also get access to my patreon live-feed and access to our private discord server.
Includes Discord benefits
Early Access Scripts
per month
You will have access to video scripts when they reach first draft stage, usually a week and a half before the video hits YouTube. This is your chance to influence the content of the videos, and laugh at how dyslexic I am. I just had to use word-check to find out how to spell dyslexic. HURRAY FOR DONKEY BRAIN!  
Includes Discord benefits
Early Access Videos
per month
Everyone pledging at this level will get early access to videos. We usually have the videos ready on Friday before the official upload on Saturday, however with the nature of YouTube the early access may arrive only 10 minutes before the official upload. That will be rare, but just want to set expectations.

It's 2020. I have somehow not updated this channel overview since I started Patreon in 2016. The original bio had this paragraph:

"I don't have a big production team behind me."

Nearly 4 years on and this is no longer true. Real Engineering has grown immensely thanks to the support of loyal subscribers like yourself. Today we do have a small production team working away behind the scenes. Mike Ridolfi - Head of Animation, Stephanie Sammonn - Producer of Real Science. Kirtan Patel - Real Science Animator, Graham Haerther - Audio Engineer and Dylan Hennessy - Editor. 

Your pledges have helped me grow this channel and employ passionate people. Today, the channel is not reliant on Patreon support to survive, but that support certainly helps us grow. If you want to see the production quality of Real Engineering to continue improving then that's where your pledges will go. I want to do more on-site filming, like the Zipline video below. I want to hire more animators. I want to licence more footage. I want to start entirely new channels. In short, I want to continue doing what we have been doing since 2016.  

$1,971 of $3,000 per month
We are really growing this channel now. With $3000, I will be able to hire someone on a full time basis to help create more content. Currently I am uploading 2 videos a month, at best. I want to be uploading 4 videos a month, a year from now. I absolutely refuse to let quality be effected to please the YouTube algorithm gods, so I need to expand my team.
