WHY BE A PATRON?
Earth Story has been entirely self-funded since April 2017 and as much as I'd love nothing more than to solely create this series, I often have to stop for work. This goal achieves a sustainable cushion for me to pursue this series even more full-time than I do now. Most of my waking hours are dedicated to shooting, editing, planning, and building this lifetime project. I want to do really great things with Earth Story (as you can tell by some of our insane sounding stretch goals), and truly believe Patreon is the best place to achieve those things. 
WHERE WILL THE MONEY GO?

Every single dollar, whether earned on Patreon or from freelance clients, is poured back into the Earth Story Project. From a van to live as frugally as possible, to camera gear, an endless amount of hard drives to store footage, and everything else that a travel series created entirely on the road needs, Earth Story need your help! I spend as little as humanly possible except on necessary items that make this infinite journey possible. The money from Patreon will always go directly into building this channel and movement from the ground up. I'm in this for the long haul.
WHY HELP EARTH STORY?
The aim for Patrons is to craft a true community where we can all grow each other and build incredible things (see goals). By supporting Earth Story, I promise you are joining a true family of Earthlings that we will keep growing every single day for years to come.

THE MAKING OF EARTH STORY
Shooting, editing, and uploading a full-time travel series while on the road is no small challenge. While we are rich in time to work on it, we simply do not have the means for a few specific necessary items: SSD drive for footage storage safety, a microphone meant for voice-over, a higher quality drone, and eventually smaller/better cameras and other various gear. 

Our goal is to consistently improve the quality of storytelling and cinematography with this series, so we need your help!
