Who am I?
My name is Jorge Meraz (@MerazRambler). First of, let me thank you for visiting my Patreon page! You probably know me from my PBS/CreateTV travel show "Crossing South". I am a TV producer and on-screen personality. On top of Crossing South I directed the Emmy award winning documentary “Visa Dream” and have two other reality shows in the works. This is my YouTube Page and if you want to follow me on InstagramTwitter or Facebook just click the links. 

I have ADHD and with that a lot of inconvenient things come, but a lot of good things too. People like me tend to excel in the creative arts. I am a bit of a renaissance man and on top of creating TV shows I am a singer/songwriter. I plan to now start sharing my music with you guys and the world. Your support will allow me to distribute my music and to create music videos for each song. This will also allow me to create new music to which you will have access first. I have prepared a lot of neat rewards for those supporting my creative works so grab on to something and join me in this ride. 

I am also writing a book based on a real story about a football team from a small but heavy on tradition HS that in the 90s lost a player to a car accident. After the loss they dedicated every season to his memory but got knocked out of the playoffs every time. The year that player would have played his senior season the head coach challenged the team and told them that since this would have been that player's last season, this would be the last time they would dedicate a season to him. Never again would they mention his name after that. This small team faced more adversity as that year a large number of seniors moved on to college and the school being too small to replenish was left with a 24 man roster. The newspaper headlines read that such HS program football might scrap the season for not having enough players. The coach and the team challenged each other, committed to work like their lives depended on it, willing to go both ways, and this rag-tag motley crew of players set themselves up for the unthinkable. This is the story I want to write.

How many creative works will you put out a month?
I usually will put up one work per month, maybe two but you can choose how many times a month you'd like to support my works. I am accepting once a month support and am perfectly ok with it even if I put out two creative works on the same calendar month. So when checking out my page just be sure to choose the “set a monthly max”. Also don’t let the tiers stop you from supporting what your heart compels you to do, I'd be ok with you contributing a million clams. There is really no limit and you will be supporting quality art and I will be more than thankful and look for more ways to credit you and send you benefits for such support.

NOTICE: Your first support will be charged as soon as you signup, and then subsequently the 1st of every month. 
Tiers
MUSTANG SALLY
$1 or more per month
Mustands are known for their strong constitution and intelligent disposition like my patrons! All music I distribute be it singles and album you will get dibs on at no extra cost other than your current donation. I will either send you the mp3 file or give you a code to download for free. This will be so whether I release a single or album. I write many genres so I hope your taste is eclectic. 
PONY EXPRESS
$10 or more per month
Ponies are remarkably strong for their size, just like the support provided by my supporters in this tier. You'll get everything from the previous levels, You will also receive the karaoke mp3 of the song and the lyric sheet of each one I put out.  Plus for TV shows you will get the first look at pilots or draft episodes not seen by the general public. You will also get a first look at the music videos we create for each song streamed through patreon for a full month before we make it public. 
Friesian Elegance
$50 or more per month
The Friesian is considered willing, active, and energetic, but also gentle and docile. They tend to have great presence and to carry on with elegance. These are the bold and free spirited traits of my supporters in this tier. You'll get everything from the previous levels, plus credit on new video productions that either air on TV or YouTube. I will also be putting behind the scenes videos of how we make some of our creative works. We will be posting videos that are rough since they are not really productions but rather videos that show part of the creative process. I will be posting videos with interviews of some progressive musicians and artists. Jam sessions or an actual concert feed. The videos included in this level will also be the transformation or translation of some international (mostly Spanish) hits that I think are worthy of being licensed (which I will do) and re-sang in English because they are simply cool and English speaking audiences never got to hear them. I will also follow you on twitter
Gypsy Heart
$500 or more per month
Many wonderful things are said about the Gypsy cob, among them is that its designed for strength and power, but with class, presence and style. That certainly describes this tier. You'll get everything from the previous levels, plus you will get to collaborate with me on the theme of a new song, as long as the subject is not controversial.  You will have a say in the subject i.e. “I’d like a song about a guy who travels on trains through Memphis and one day runs into his HS sweetheart” It can be about your hometown, it can be about a love lost, it can be about your best friend from school. The genres we could do are either indie-pop-rock or country.  Once you begin your membership you will be put on a queue, since we will be making one song per month, the order will be on a first come first serve basis. You will receive a production credit on this song. You may or may not receive a surprise gift randomly. 
Clydesdale Power
$1,000 or more per month
Known as the gentle giant, the typical Clydesdale exhibits a willing, kind disposition. It's a very smart horse and that disposition is needed for this tier. You'll get everything from the previous levels, plus you become an Associate Producer on the TV shows I create. Just to give you a heads up I have a documentary that could be turned into a series in the style of Dr.90210 but in another profession. And a European travel show your name would be added to the production credits.  And you also get a credit when I finish my book.  If you do this for a six month minimum you will receive a coupon for a free tour (max party of 6) at the Guadalupe Valley wine country in Baja Mexico through CrossingSouthExperience.com with meals and drinks included. You will be picked up and dropped off in San Diego CA. You will need to call to get all the details as to required documentation and other things you will need since you will be crossing an international border. You and those who travel with you need to be over 18. Flights to San Diego and accommodations there are not included.  
Goals
0% complete
When I reach $5000 a month I will start creating weekly content for ya'll which will include my three pronged creative works, TV, Music and Literary. I will also be streaming live musical lessons and concerts of indie artists for you.
