Who Are You?

Hi! I'm Bumbleworth and I animate weird characters! Animation is my passion and I absolutely love telling a story and seeing the reaction. I work a 9-5 day job and don't have much time to dedicate to animation currently. I'm hoping this could help me find that time in the future or at least make it easier to keep my license for the software I use to create these animations. I'm originally from Ohio and I now reside in Florida with my girlfriend, Alison, and 2 Scottish Fold cats. I've animated a few commercials and also some children's cartoons in the past professionally. However, I really enjoy creating my own stories and having control over every aspect of a piece. It's also a lot of fun stuffing these things with easter eggs for everyone to find. My joy comes from a person's reaction to the animation. There's simply nothing better than making someone laugh or feel something.

Why Patreon?

It's no secret that YouTube isn't very kind to animation channels. Something like The Help Desk animation takes up to 3 months working on it by myself. The hours needed to make these videos really doesn't even begin to make sense if you're trying to earn a living on YouTube. Which is why I have a full-time day job and also why this Patreon exists now. :P

Eventually, I would love to do YouTube animation full-time and be my own boss. This would mean MORE animation FASTER. Gosh, that is exciting to think about. Though that may never happen, I like to dream! In the mean time, small amounts could add up and help me pay for the license to animate in the software I use, Maya. It costs $1470 a year for a license. 3D ain't cheap y'all!

This is also for the people that are really interested in animation and want to maybe get exposure to some of the stuff I do. Granted, I don't work the way a lot of other animators may work. :P
Or maybe you just really love the videos and want more and more info about what's next? That's fine too as I'll be posting lots of progress shots and behind the scenes videos. I love opinions and more eyes on what I'm doing to make it the best it can possibly be. You'll partially be helping to shape the animations with your feedback!

20 bucks a month?! This would simply buy Ali and I a good dinner for the month and I animate much better on a full stomach. Chipotle perhaps? Mmm, Chipotle...
