patrons

Let's start with a set of HUGE thanks! Thanks for listening to The Countdown. Thanks for giving two massive film buffs and best friends a shot. Thanks for becoming a fan! (Because why else would you even consider visiting here?) And thanks for coming as far as checking out our Patreon page. It means the world to us that you would even think about donating some of your hard earned cash to not only keep the show going, but also growing!

Because that's exactly what we're aiming for here. We're going to keep creating the same weekly show for everyone to enjoy. But we want to improve the sound quality with better equipment, and as our back catalogue grows, we want to be able to keep all our episodes available to new listeners that come to the show. That means more server space. We also want to record more content and reach more and more sets of ears. And in this day and age all of that comes with a financial cost.

SO .. we're offering a number of incentives to say thank you for your contribution. The tiers are a work in progress, so please bear with us while we sort through the intricacies of Patreon. That said, we're very open to hearing YOUR ideas about what you'd like see here which you think others might also like.

Will the show end if you opt not to become a patron? Ahh, no. We love doing it too much for that to be something we'd ever threaten. So this is not about guilting or begging you as you click through the page. We're not those kind of guys. (Well, Wayne might be; Paul is a stand up bloke ... who may or may not be responsible for writing what you're reading now.) Instead, this is about seeing what kind of an "empire" (with a very small 'e') we can build and how much better the show might become.

And if you do choose to become a patron, know you have the undying gratitude of two Aussie mates who no-one thought would make it to Episode 10 with their movie podcast, let alone be able to invest back into the show with the help of some seriously cool folks. Help us show those naysayers. *shakes fist at said nasysayers* :P
Tiers
Number 6 - Heartfelt Gratitude
$1 or more per month
Number 6 is, appropriately enough, the 6th best tier and it's the one that will earn you our heartfelt gratitude! NEW: It will also allow you to listen to the making of the combined show list, for those episodes where The Countdown goes up against another podcast and their shared list. In other words, you'll get what is effectively an extra episode of the regular show approximately monthly for JUST ONE BUCK!
Number 5 - Early Access
$2 or more per month
Number 5 is the tier where you'll get early access to each new Episode before it officially drops on Tuesday 5pm AWST. The moment it is edited and published, it will be uploaded here FIRST!

You'll also receive our heartfelt gratitude, of course!
Number 4 - Back Catalogue
$3 or more per month
Number 4 is where you get access to previous episodes of the Countdown that long ago disappeared from our server. Now bear in mind, the Eps are rougher than those we produce today, but if you're at all interested in the genesis of the show and want to hear how it all evolved (aka. want to laugh your asses off at how bad we were!), then this is the tier for you!


And of course you'll also receive all the rewards from the lower tiers! 

Number 3 - Review It!
$5 or more per month
Number 3 is where you get to start shaping the show's content. All patrons who pledge $5 or more will get to choose a film to be reviewed by us that will either appear here as bonus content, or will become a part of the main show!


And of course you'll also receive all the rewards from the lower tiers! 

Number 2 - Behind The Scenes Pass
$10 or more per month
Number 2 is the level at which you will get to know The Countdown warts and all. We've been recording some behind the scenes content that was either cut for time or not film-related enough. So expect at least a monthly piece of bonus content that will allow you to get to know both of us that much better. Personal stories relating to our lives will be a regular part of this, and some of it (let me tell you) is highly embarrassing!


And of course you'll also receive all the rewards from the lower tiers! 

Number 1 - Name Your Countdown!
$20 or more per month (sold out!)
Number 1 is the tier when YOU get to pick a Countdown! Patrons at this level will get to pick a Countdown topic upon pledging that we will do a full, released Ep on. We only ask that you make it accessible enough to others so that the Ep will still be entertaining to the average listener. But otherwise, go for it! Force us outside our comfort zones, make us check out some films which are glaring holes in our filmography. Bring. it On.


We will also do a follow up topic for you every 6 months that you remain at this level. Boom! Two shows a year for as long as we run will be directed by you!


And of course you'll also receive all the rewards from the lower tiers!

Goals
51% complete
Lofty though it may be, at this level, we'll be able to dedicate far more time to the show which means a) more content on a regular basis and b) paying for the babysitting Paul's daughter will need if we're going to do this!
