Essential Films is a channel that aims to take a closer look at beloved and culturally important films, classic and modern, to examine what makes the films that are generally considered to be "great movies" so great, while also championing debated contemporary films and unearthing unsung masterpieces from some of film's earlier decades. These are the films that I believe are the greatest: the best of the best, the films that anyone who loves (or even simply likes) films should see. My greatest hope for this channel is that it will introduce younger generations to older movies and older generations to newer movies, but more importantly, that it will give people a chance to reexamine films that they've already seen with a new perspective. All in all, regardless of whether you like or dislike any of these films, I do believe that these are all worth a closer look.
Tiers
Bronze Donor Status
$1 or more per month
Those who donate $1 or more will have access to my "Essential Films" videos a full one week early. Lucky them.
Platinum Donor Status
$2.50 or more per month
Those who donate $2.50 or more will be able to access exclusive material-- for example, my "Guilty Pleasures" series, which involves me debating movies with friends; and gives me a chance to talk about some films which for one reason or another weren't good enough to get a full-length video on my channel, but are worth talking about anyways.
Gold Donor Status
$5 or more per month
Q&A video?

Google Hangout?
Free merch?


You decide! I'm trying to brainstorm what the best reward for this tier is so far, but anyone who donates this much really should get the best, so I'd love to hear your advice on what you'd be interested in seeing happen with this reward tier.

Goals
$17 of $100 per month
The more money that I make through Patreon means the less money that I'll need to make elsewhere in the meantime, which means the more time I can spend working on videos and making them better. That means more videos, more consistently, and better quality.
