Right! So cards on the table! I'm a small scale YouTuber with no budget. I absolutely adore film making! However anything I make I have to fund myself, which is fine because it's just a hobby at the moment, but this means my films are limited considerably due to a lack of revenue. I have plenty of scripts and film ideas that I've had to put on hold due to their scale just being a bit too ambitious: They may contain expensive props or need me to pay for better locations or actors etc. and that's before I even consider the fact that my camera and audio equipment is in desperate need of an upgrade (and film equipment and editing software is soooo damn expensive). Basically my aim is for my films to increase consistently in quality and scope and I just can't afford to do it all myself. I want my finished films to look as great as they do in my head! I want them to be as good as they can be, so everyone else can enjoy them as well. I want to be able to deliver great content to all you lovely chaps, lady chaps and everyone in between and beyond! 

That's where Patreon and you guys come in! I'm not too big to admit I need help. I can't make films as well or as frequently as I'd like (and I hope as you'd like) without the added helping hand. And sure I'd love to get to the stage where I can do this for a living (I've put that as a milestone... hint hint..), so I can produce films much more frequently, but in the meantime I just want to make spiffing videos. 

So If you don't know, the way Patreon works is that you donate to one project at a time. So you would specify an amount and every time I release a video that amount is donated. You can also put a monthly cap on spending, so if I were to release too many videos a month (unlikely) then you'd reach your donation limit and you wouldn't spend more than you wanted to. Now that's only a donation when a video on my main channel is released, not anything else on my second channel. Also you don't have to live in the USA to donate in dollars (if you didn't know $1 is about the equivalent to 60 pence in the UK....HINT!). 

So if you are amazingly generous enough to support me then just know that you will be a part of helping to create these daft and ridiculous video jobbies and hopefully you'll also become more of a part of the videos themselves. I want to include you in the process as a thank you and so you guys can help give me a bit of feedback as well. Plus, just think, if you pledge to support my videos then you never need to feel guilty about using that adblock on YouTube ever again! Well when watching my stuff that is...

I'll stuff my Patreon feed full of saucy little extra bits and bobs that I won't upload anywhere else and will be exclusively for your eyes. Things like behind the scenes images and production shots, concept sketches/doodles, pre-release videos, updates on my comings and goings and new projects on the way as well as draft scripts to gain your feedback and input. I'll also endeavour to pop my finished videos up ahead of public viewing so you guys will get early peeking rights (they could be up anywhere between a few hours to a couple of days, but they'll be early!).   

Donating as little as $1 per video gives you access to my Patreon feed, a mention at the end of my next video and access to a private little discord chat group where I can keep you updated on all things video, but there are also those extra little incentives for varying levels of pledges that I've put together.

If you don't have the money to donate then that's obviously fine, I'm grateful for anyone who just watches one of my videos, but if you are able to then you will make a nerdy film making loser very happy. Every little extra helps me out!!
