About Volksgeist

Hey!

Volksgeist is a video essay channel that explores the history of hip hop, its current state and its relation to the world around us. I try to create educational videos that are both informative, engaging and entertaining. 

My name is Philip Damico and I started this channel when I was 17. I wanted to talk with other people who liked the same music I do.

2 years later, it's my full time job. But it's not cheap. I spend, at least, $200 while making each video. And I make 2-3 videos every month!

That includes:
  • Adobe Creative Cloud subscription
  • Epidemic Sound subscription
  • Motion Array subscription
  • Gigabit Internet for streaming and uploading
  • Wix subscription for Volksgeist website
  • Assets from youworkforthem, creativemarket, etc.
  • Research assistant costs
  • Google Drive subscription
  • Occasional hardware costs such as RAM or storage upgrades

Long story short, there are significant costs to keep the channel running. But I want to improve my production value and storytelling even more. That's why your pledge will go directly towards improving the content and paying for associated costs. 

Thank you so much for supporting the show and enjoying my work!

Philip
