About Joe Jeremiah
Hi I’m Joe Jeremiah. Thanks for checking out my Patreon!
To quickly summarize the above video; I have made a Patreon in the hopes of buying back time. I spend roughly 30 hours a week on my videos, on top of 30 hours at my “real job.” I would love to be able to drop those “real job” hours and reinvest them into making more stuff!
In the video I mention that with your support I could make better stuff, more stuff and new stuff . I’d like to elaborate on what I mean by each of these.
With regards to A-Bit of 8-Bit; I want to improve the visual aspect; making pixel backgrounds, animated characters and more interesting editing. (See A-Bit of Memes or A-Bit of Skrillex to get an idea of what I mean). I also love doing ambitious medleys and the more time I have the better they can be.
With regards to Piano Joe; I think that this series could use a pretty major overhaul! I am currently unhappy with both the sound and visual aspects of this series. To me it feels like a side project… and I’d love it to be able to stand on it’s own. (See Peter Bence or Constantino Carrara for an idea of what I envision).
When I say I could make more stuff I mean that I could release videos more frequently. However, I think that a weekly schedule is probably about as frequent as you would want for music videos (any more frequent than that and I think the quality would begin to suffer significantly). But perhaps I could do different kinds of videos in the gaps…
Isn’t it sad when you go back to a YouTube channel you used to watch and it’s become stale? Everybody needs to keep evolving in order to stay relevant and interesting. Here are some new areas that I would delve into if I had the time.
Tutorial Videos – Every day I get asked about “how to do music,” to paraphrase … I had a great time making the Patreon explanation video above and, in a similar vein, I would love to start a tutorial series explaining my approach and philosophy to music. I would imagine doing this in a similar style to Extra Credits, Alt Shift X, Kurzgesagt, Game Theory, 8-bit Music Theory or Crash Course; with spoken word supported by (pixel) animations.
Original Music – Yeah, doing covers is cool, but writing original music is REALLY COOL. I’d love to have more time for this. If I could, I would write both, my own albums and look at composing more for video games.
My Magnum Opus – I don’t want to say too much about this yet… but for as long as I can remember I have had an enormous idea bubbling inside me. It’s a story that I intend to tell using music and art. I call it a musical fantasy and I suspect that it will be the best thing I will ever make. I pray that I get the chance to complete it and share it with you.
So, there we have it, if you were wondering what I would do with your donations, this is it! Ultimately, I just want more time to make the things I see and hear in my head, and hopefully you are here because you think the things I make are alright!
How do I become a patron?
1. Click on the "become a patron" or "get $x reward" buttons
2. Fill in the details of how much you want to pledge.
3. If you aren't already signed up you will need to sign up for Patreon. You can do this through facebook or email.
4. Don’t forget to set a monthly maximum number of pledges if you are worried about going over budget! (I currently produce one video per week). You will now reach the confirmation/payment screen. Patreon accepts credit card or PayPal.
6. Congratulations! You are now a patron.
7. Every time I post a video your pledge will be tallied and the total amount will be processed in the first week of each month.
8. Rewards work on a monthly basis. So you will have to wait until the month after your first supported content for some rewards.
*Note - You can cancel or modify your pledge at anytime before a video is released.
I just want to close by saying thank you and if you have any feedback or questions about this whole Patreon thing, don’t hesitate to message me!
