Hey! Thanks for coming to check this page out. When I decided that I wanted to learn animation, there wasn't much for me to check out online that was going to help me get a job. I'm trying to help change that so that others can start getting into Animation and VFX much more easily through great, helpful, and honest resources that will actually get you hired!

I'm also not THE expert on this stuff. Not even close! I'm learning every day and I'm documenting my creative journey so that you can learn from my successes and my failures. And Patreon is where I share the deepest insights and experiences, beyond what I share in my usual content!

If you feel like supporting me in what I'm attempting to do, I really appreciate it! Your support allows me to create better content, more often, and with higher production value- and this page allows me to give something back as well!

Check out the video above for a quick summary of the perks, or head to the rewards tiers below to become a part of the crew and participate in shaping the content on my channel and everything else I get the opportunity to work on :)

Thanks for coming, and I hope you'll join the Crew!

Goals
$457 of $2,000 per month
Patreon Short Film

When we hit this goal, I'll put together some form of collaborative project that we can all work on as a team!

Whether you're just starting out or looking for a job, working in 2D, 3D, stop-motion, etc. we'll create something in a format that everyone can participate in that will get posted to my YouTube Channel!
