Rob Nelson is creating Science Videos

Hi! My name is Rob Nelson, and I make videos about biodiversity. I run UntamedScience.com, a website and non-profit I created to work with scientists, writers, and artists around the globe to tell important eco-stories. Most of these you may not find circulating the internet or broadcast far and wide on TV.

Through this Patreon page, I encourage you to support science education, science communication, and Untamed Science on a monthly basis. You'll enable me to make videos and outreach like this:


Starting Small and Growing

This Untamed Science funding model is starting small and will scale up as we grow as a community. I occasionally find additional funding from larger organizations (and we welcome those connections from you). But the goal is to make Untamed Science self-sustaining as its own entity, enabling us to deliver the enriching science content that we find fascinating and that we hope is interesting to watch and share.

Remember, Untamed Science is not corporate. "We" are individual science filmmakers. Friends. A family. I am personally motivated by my roles as a father and husband, a scientist, a small-business owner. You will see that in the heart and soul of our videos.

What will you get?

If you're someone who thinks of the greater good, or maybe a parent or educator yourself, you might think of Untamed Science as an investment in the next generation, providing worthwhile messages and stories of people passionate about their work. But for that, we also deliver to you a good viewing experience and Patreon-only perks.

This Patreon feed will be where we interact behind the scenes. I'll show you more about the plants and animals my team films via live streams (scaled up as we get bigger), casual interactions with scientists in the field, and other content we won't share with the broader public. 

Can I make a one time contribution?

Sure you can. When you sign up, patreon will give you that option. However, it might be even better to figure out how much you can give and join the community at a smaller level each month so that you'll have access to all the behind-the-scenes stuff we're doing while knowing that you're helping support our work. I love having you here after all and enjoy the interaction with all of you.

How do I learn to make science films like you?

Right now, I will continue to share our tips and tricks in science filmmaking. I'll be sharing them here, but I should note that for now, it has it's own Patreon page.

More About Me

If you're curious as to how I started or why I want to make science content and teach others the craft, I encourage you to watch this animated short. You'll see the drive behind Untamed Science and the passion that drives me.


Tiers
Biophiliacs
$2 or more per month

You're now part of my inner circle. I didn't want to create a bunch of tiers with different perks until I got input from you, so this is where it all happens. You'll get the livestreams, patron-only posts, the extra behind-the-scenes from shoots, and anything else we do extra for patrons.

Executive Producer
$100 or more per month

Yep, you actually get an executive producer credit for this. You help fund each video I make in a big way! You'll be part of the community just like the rest, but I'll also add your name to every video our team makes! It's a big deal since I'm adding your name to the actual video; it'll live on forever (which is why I have to limit this tier to 4 of you). You can jump into this tier if you want for just a video or two and then hop back. In fact, that'd be a great way to show just an extra bit of support every so often.

Goals

I'll make sure every video has a short behind the scenes component that I can send out to you!
