Who are We?
Chris and Ricky and Software industry veterans with a dream to be Youtube Famous. No just kidding, we don't want the fame, just the creative process!

Chris has like two decades of industry experience as a program manager, quality assurance engineer, scrum master, and entrepreneur. Seriously, he's like, super old.

Ricky started out in aerospace engineering, saw the iOS app store, saw the writing on the wall and started learning software. He's been writing code for about 10 years now, and thinks creating video content is "the next big thing."


Why do we need Your help?
Researching topics, writing scripts, recording voice-overs, editing videos, modeling & animation are all very time consuming, not to mention expensive. If you've seen our latest videos, we want to share some numbers with you...

1. We will usually spend about $100-$300 on 3D models per video.
2. We then build out scenes, which usually takes about 15-30 hours per video.
3. We then render 4k scenes with Blender, at 30 frames per second. Each frame will usually take about 2 minutes, so that means 2 hours per second of final footage...

Yeah, this isn't easy, but gosh if we don't love it. We want to buy more render farm computers with 5-6 GPU's each, to lower these times and get us ready to deliver more content.

Your patronage, will help us field all the hardware we need, as well as provide us a decent salary for us to do this FULL TIME.

Reaching Our Dream
We're not going to lie, that's our dream, and it wont be easy, living in San Diego, with our big mortgages and families. But we feel like we're close, and we would never forget the love and support of our patrons.

Currently we work after hours, sacrifice sleep to deliver a video about every 2 weeks. If we had enough support, we could do this full time, have more time for our families, AND deliver a video every week. That's the ultimate goal.

Also, we want you guys asking questions, starting discussions, and recommending future video ideas. We love the process, and we can't wait to build a community of inquiring minds.
