I'm Jack Pennington, a filmmaker from North Carolina. Thanks for checking out my Patreon page!

Back in college, when I couldn't focus on the lecture, I'd doodle in my notebook or scribble down ideas for movies. One day, I started compulsively writing one phrase over and over again: "Tell Stories, Change The World".

That phrase has become my creative mission. When I graduated film school, I had half a dozen screenplays that I wanted to sell in Hollywood, as well as several entry level job opportunities as a television writer in Los Angeles. But I didn't pursue that. Instead, I bought a cheap camera and started bringing it to parties and asking people to "Tell me a story".

A story is a powerful thing. Sharing a story with a stranger is a way to share yourself with that person. And once you've shared a piece of someone else, it becomes much harder to remain divided from them.

So it's decided. I'm going to Tell Stories, and Change The World. With your help, of course.

Over the years, I've interviewed hundreds of people, and what I've discovered is that every person has something beautiful and unique within them, waiting for an opportunity to come out. It might be as complex as a personal philosophy or manifesto on life, or as simple as one line of wise advice. That's the core of the TellChange project, pulling out that unique thing from every subject.

My Patreon supports a handful of podcasts that I produce, as well as several documentary projects (short form and feature) that I'm working on independently. Your pledges fund these endeavors, and as a patron, you'll get the opportunity to follow my work behind the scenes and get early access to my work!

I've worked hard to maintain my independence as a filmmaker. I've been offered tens of thousands of dollars to produce documentaries for production companies and large organizations, and I've turned it down because I didn't want my vision to be compromised for cash. I don't want to be held accountable to somebody's corporate mission. I want to be held accountable to YOU, my followers.

So back me today and be a part of something great! I tend to produce a TON of content, so I use a monthly model as opposed to charging you every time I make something. It saves you money, and makes life simpler for me. Want to pledge a little? You can get early access to ALL of my content for just $3 a month. Want to pledge a lot? You can get your name on NEVER GET LAID and TellChange as a featured patron or executive producer. But all of my patrons get the satisfaction of supporting a project that actively seeks to connect people and heal a divided world.

Give me a hand, and let's Tell Stories and Change the World.
