Your support enables and motivates me to continue to do what I do and I am extremely grateful for you to be apart of my hockey journey, so thank you.
WHO AM I?
Hi, my name is Sam Mantini, I am a goalie and filmmaker who created the YouTube channel called The Puck Stops Here! A weekly show where I share glorified recaps of my mens league hockey games, gear reviews and more.
A show that prides itself on quality hockey content that entertains and educates goalies of all ages. In a sport where only pros are celebrated, I aim to be the place where goalies, players and fans go when they need a little hockey fix.
I want to take this show and build a community of hockey enthusiasts who love the game as much as I do. I have a TON of ideas for new content that I am excited to create BUT I can only take this to the NEXT LEVEL with your support!
WHAT WILL I DO WITH YOUR MONEY?
Well to start, once I reach my goal of 500 patrons, I will hire a videographer who can help me shoot and edit new content that I can not film on my own. Videos such as on ice gear reviews, hockey vlogs, comedic & cinematic hockey episodes and much more!
But that is just the start! I love giving back to those who support me, so when I reach my goal of 1,000 patrons, I will do monthly gear reviews of brand new equipment and when I reach 2,500 patrons, I will create 2 videos a week as well as merch giveaways!
However, I want to do more then that, so if I reach my goal of 5,000 patrons, I will produce 5 videos a week as well as give away a new hockey stick every month.
Now that all sounds amazing, but I know how expensive goalie equipment is, so that is why if I reach my goal of 10,000+ patrons, I will giveaway a brand new set of pads EVERY SINGLE MONTH!
Now on top of supporting and providing stability for me and my show I will:
- Provide more Behind the Scenes Videos that show how I shoot, edit and hacks for creating your own hockey videos.
- I will do more live stream reviews of new gear and/or answer questions about it.
- A lot of people have asked me "Do you have any merch?" so a part of the money will also go to designing and paying for the cost to create some awesome t-shirts, sweaters, toques, hats and much more.
WHERE DO I WANT THIS CHANNEL TO GO?
When I started this channel, I just wanted to watch my game footage to see how I can improve my game but then you started to watch, follow and suggest ways to make my videos better.
After some time, the channel started to grow and I realized that it was no longer just for me anymore. So I pushed myself to make my videos even better by adding on screen graphics such as a scoreboard, instant replay, game/season stats and more.
Although I do not know where this channel is heading, I know that with your continued support, I can make it one of the best goalie channels on YouTube.
WHEN DO I POST NEW VIDEOS?
I post new videos every Sunday morning but once we hit our goal of 500 patrons, I plan on posting a second video every Wednesday.
WHY DO I POST VIDEOS?
I have played hockey my entire life and I always thought I was going to play in the NHL, but like most of us, I ended up in beer league and that's okay!
One day I decided to merge my passion for making videos and hockey by filming and editing a recap video of one of my Sunday night games. Not only did I enjoy creating the video, I also learnt a lot about how I play in net. From that moment on I decided to film and edit every game and the rest is history.
