Hi there, GoogleyGareth here! I make Source Filmmaker animations of a bunch of goofs, and love every minute of it!

If you feel that my animations have left you laughing, impressed, or otherwise scarred for life, consider throwing a dollar my way! Every contribution keeps my channel alive and helps me animate. In turn, you get access to lots of behind-the-scenes content and more!

So. Big question. Why am I making a Patreon page?

When I started this channel (or rather, when I started making animations), I did so out of the love for the content I made them of. I'd pick random clips I liked and worked away at them in Source Filmmaker. That hasn't changed in all the years I've animated for the channel. From Big channels like Game Grumps, the late Super Best Friends and Jerma985, to smaller ones like Spike and Barley. They've all equally provided me entertainment and happiness throughout the years watching them. These were kinda like a 'thank you' note to those people, as well as their communities. That's what drove me to make those animations, and that's what drives me to make them today.

Now, I've had this channel for almost 7 years, and through that time I've treated it as a side hobby. I started it in highschool, and worked away at it in my spare time. I continued to make more and more animations and once I realized I was starting to get pretty good at animation, I decided to take some college courses on them. That continued on for 4 years till eventually I finished them. I'm now faced with the decision to go to university to learn even more, or try making a living out of this. I figured, if this is something I've been enjoying and working towards for so long, why not give it a shot?

Youtube as an income is not a ridiculous concept by itself. However, as an animator, it's near impossible to make a living from it. Youtube's monetization format does not work well with animators. Youtube looks for long videos and constant uploads, and that's the opposite of what I provide. My videos take so much time to create even a minute of animation. 

And that's where Patreon comes in.

By using Patreons system, I'll be making as much money as the quality of my channel will take me. The money will in turn help to make my projects even better. It's a much more manageable and flexible system than youtube that is a godsend for animators and artists alike. Some of the money will be used to keep my day to day life going, while the majority of it will be turned back into the channel for commissions for Source Filmmaker models, maps, voices, whatever I need to make quality videos for you. I'll provide updates in the feed every couple of weeks to let you all know how the projects are coming along.

I love creating animations, and I want to make them even better. With your help, I'll be able to make this happen!

Thanks for your time, and I hope my videos have entertained you!

Really starting to get this gravy train rolling now. I can now start commisioning different people to help with my projects. Modelers and map makers and such. Which means more detail and freedom in my projects! No longer confined to the charity of the sfm community!
