Hi! We're Lars and Thomas, two best friends from Amsterdam and the two guys behind Storytellers. We strive to enhance your appreciation of film by extracting meaning from story. Our study at the University of Amsterdam has given us the tools to analyse movies to their core, and with this channel we strive to share our insights and perspectives for you to enjoy.

We believe that by analyzing meaning and archetype from story, we look for lessons of the human experience that have spanned throughout the ages. 



Patreon is really the bloodline of any channel nowadays. Especially those that work with copyright sensitive material and at times (apparently) sensitive topics. Demonetization and censoring have become a real issue on the platform so this is where we have to make our stand.
We genuinely want to grow this YouTube channel into something special. With Patreon we hope to give back to our community, and ultimately realize our goal to make this our full time job .


Each contribution however small will allow us to spend more time researching, editing, learning and improving our videos. We will also re-invest into our hardware for better quality sound and hopefully even animation.
