Who am I?

My name is Alan Hernandez. I have 7 years in the hobby of miniature gaming and 5 years producing videos for youtube as The Apathetic Fish. At the time I'm writing this I have  more than 46,000 youtube subscribers close to 280 videos and over 5.5 million views.

What is it I do?

I fell in love with miniature gaming 7 years ago. Being that the miniature hobby is getting more and more expensive by the year I decided to create a Youtube channel where I'd do tutorials, unboxings, reviews and such to monetize my videos and see if I could that way sustain my hobby. Turned out to be pretty good and there's a lot of positive feedback in the miniature gaming community supporting my channel. Sadly times are rough and the add revenue while is good to pay my internet connection and maybe a couple of miniature boxes is not enough to allow me to keep up with the way the community is evolving and the add revenue that I earn for my videos does not justify the large amounts of time and money that I invest producing videos. I do video tutorials because I love it but real life forces me to try and find a better job from which I can exist. 

Why do I need your help?

Miniature gaming is expensive. Keeping up with new releases and different game systems is hard and very expensive for one person. Many people want me to make tutorials for the models they collect for different factions or games and it can be difficult especially if the model is a new release or is larger than a troop size model. Producing high quality videos is also very time consuming and I would like to get paid for doing it. Normal video add revenue is not enough for the amount of effort it takes to make the videos or the cost of the miniature and materials themselves. Your contributions will help me stay up to date bringing you fresh new content and also Improve the quality of my equipment. For example a new computer to render videos faster, better camera, better lighting equipment, microphones, pay for new miniatures, pay for the tools and materials, pay for books, and make this hobby not a financial hindrance from which I can actually get fair remuneration for my efforts.

No money? No worries!

 I will paint you one troop model and send it to you with your first succesfull contribution. I could even make it a tutorial if it doesn't exist already. This perk is for troop models similar to a space marine, no characters, no big models. Its for you to have a reference model to compare your work to and the tutorial for it to be available.
 
Goals
$68 of $250 per month
This is something that I already try to do but sometimes life gets on the way and I can't keep up. To have this ensured income means that I could consider this hobby a second part time job for which I can spare more time and really commit to the production of videos. I will produce at least one video a week and keep producing the more I advance attaining goals.
