Vi Hart is creating free media that lifts the human spirit. Like math videos!

Hi, I’m Vi Hart. Many of you know me from the doodling in math class video series and internet videos like Hexaflexagons and Twelve Tones, or from Parable of the Polygons, or maybe even from virtual reality research like four dimensional and hyperbolic VR, as seen in Nature and the New York Times.

Making my style of video is more expensive and time consuming than most people would guess, especially at the pace I work. I am a slow human. But I'm glad to have the support of so many folks who think the extra time is worth it!

Current Budget Status:

Right now together y'all are pledging about $8,100 a month. This would be great if it were my take-home pay or if this were a hobby, but it's a tight budget for running a film studio where I need space, equipment, utilities, insurance, etc. More budget details can be found in patron-only posts. At the moment I'm dipping into my savings as I work to figure out a sustainable budget and schedule, but I'm hopeful we'll get there.

Budget Update: I'm trying to figure out a merch thing that will take some of the pressure off y'all and get us to fully funded! Shirt selling has been experimental and intermittent thus far, but I think I'm getting better at it? This is where that happens: store.dftba.com/collections/vi-hart

Currently Available Patreon Perks:

📸 Lens is a Patreon feature where I upload short video clips of what I'm working on or doing, which disappear after 24 hours. Works best on the Patreon app on your phone, but should appear on the feed on the website too. I upload most days, though not every day. Sometimes they're pretty good.
📝 Patron-only posts, including progress updates, test images and videos, and other musings, with a comment section worth reading and replying in! There's a long archive with lots of interesting stuff in there at this point.
💕 Acknowledgement on my thank-you page: vihart.com/thanks, possibly with a personalized emoji of your choice. I like taking a moment to type out everyone's name by hand because it helps me recognize them around our internets.
👯 VIM Live, a livestream with M Eifler aka BlinkPopShift, where we talk about whatever, often artist art stuff. Currently Tuesday evenings at 5 Pacific. Usually runs an hour, with 10 episodes in the archives.

Meaning

Is 42 really the meaning of life, the universe, and everything? Maybe, because $42 can help me bring meaning to the lives of others. A pledge at this level is a vote for meaning.
