About

Welcome to my Patreon community! Each month I'll be posting my interviews, films, articles, photographs, music, and other encouragement for the road we're all walking.

But what is this Patreon thing, Michael? Patreon is a site that allows creatives to gather a community of paying members to help sustain their work. Basically, rather than you paying for this content with your eyeballs on ads on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc, you're able to subscribe directly to my Patreon site. Which means that instead of your money going to advertisement-based tech companies who want to monetize your attention spans, you now have a direct connection to me, my livelihood, and my life.

Got it. And you're going to post interviews here? Yes. For my podcast The Work, I constantly interview fascinating people like Robert Duvall, Jessica Chastain, Snoop, Slash, Spike Lee, and many many more. The full versions of those interviews will +only+ appear here.

Sounds good. Will you be posting other stuff too? Indeed. I'll also be sharing:

+sneak previews of films I'm working on
+articles I've written
+celebrity portraits I've snapped
+songs I've written or performed
+things that help me live more deliberately
+and many other nuggets.

How often? My goal is to post at least eight to ten times a month, but many months I'll be doing more than that.

Sounds expensive, am I right? Nope. It only costs you a buck a month. One dollar a month enables me to create a community here, where we'll all learn from and grow with each other. You'll get an email update whenever I post, so you don't have to worry about missing anything (of course, you can also opt out of those emails if you like). And then we'll all gather on the comment board to discuss and share.

Thank you for your patronage and for supporting independent art. I know it seems like a dollar a month won't make a lot of difference, but as we grow by the hundreds and thousands, this site becomes a vital way for me to pay bills. My dearest hope is that you'll receive a hundredfold back from this community what you put in.

Would you subscribe and be a part of our community?

Thanks so much,
Michael

P.S. At patron request, I've also included $10 and $50 tiers as well for those who want to support at a higher level. But my intention is that more than 90 percent of what I post is available to all patrons, no matter what level.

P.P.S. The braggy stuff -- you probably know all this, but I'm a New York Times award-winning filmmaker, Editor at Large of Paste Magazine, Creative Director of the Portland Film Festival, film professor at Sewanee, and MFA candidate at Fairfield University. And I play guitar and sing in a band formerly called Brother Tucker.

To see my film Six LA Love Stories, with Peter Bogdanovich, Alicia Witt, Carrie Preston, Matthew Lillard, Beth Grant, Stephen Tobolowsky, and many others, go here.

To see my film 21 Years: Richard Linklater, with Matthew McConaughey, Keanu Reeves, Ethan Hawke, Jack Black, Zac Efron, Julie Delpy, and many others, go here.
