Double Digit Dollars makes cents, er, sense. You pay $10 per month for a lot of your other forms of entertainment (Hulu, Netflix, Disney+, that gym membership you may or may not use), lumping The Weekend Take in with that crowd is good company to be in and certainly won't go unnoticed. 

Patrons at this level receive:

- A Blu-Ray or DVD of a recent home video release from The Weekend Take Host and Director of Photography in the Film and Television Industry, Shawn Schaffer (requires mailing address).

- Social Media Tag and Follow

About The Weekend Take

Hello everyone! 

My name is Shawn Schaffer. For over 15 years now, I have been a Director of Photography in the film and television industry, working on hundreds of projects, ranging from your local car dealership commercial to million dollar plus budgeted feature films with Academy Award nominated talent.

All my life, however, I have been a statistics enthusiast, be it in sports, business, or in film. I love numbers. It recently occurred to me in conversation with my friends just how often I look at and discuss the business of the box office with them, in great statistical detail, and how I parlay that into topical discussion about the industry as a whole.

Rather than have an intervention to tell me I have a problem, they encouraged me to hone those talking points and myriad statistical figures into a weekly podcast to share with you all. 

However, much like everything else in my life, I don't want to do this podcast half-assed, but I know to have the right people involved with me on this journey takes resources, both in time and treasure, so I have started this Patreon Page as a means to keep the wheels turning and hopefully use it as a jump off point to other outlets and programs in the future.

Please contribute if you can. I will be running this page as a "pay what you can" campaign, but for extra special patrons who go above and beyond, I will be sure to give shout outs and more both on the podcast and across social media.

Thanks for checking this out and I look forward to providing you with both insightful and entertaining content. Cheers!
Goals
$27.44 of $50 per month
Reaching this goal will allow us to afford our monthly unlimited storage plan through PodBean (currently $14/month) so that episodes will always be archived and available for anyone to go back and listen to or for new listeners who want to binge on the shows.

It will also allow us to host, build, and maintain a dedicated web site for The Weekend Take with SEO tools to help grow our reach and audience.

We will also be able to reinvest in ourselves with a small monthly marketing budget to promote the show as well as episodes when they are released.
