Hi, I’m Henry, and on my channel The Closer Look I make video essays on film to help aspiring writers and directors learn their craft, or just to help the average Joe understand film a little better.

I used to work at a supermarket, with poor grades and low prospects but in November of 2017 I quit that job (because it crushed my soul a bit) and ever since have been lucky enough to be living my passion of making video essays for you guys on The Closer Look. This channel has really given me a purpose in life, one that I never knew before as for the first time it feels like I’m actually adding value to people’s lives, rather than stacking shelves with Shreddies and discount bleach. Which for a period of my life is all I did.

If my channel were to fail, I’d probably have to go back to that immensely unfulfilling job; that thought terrifies me. But by supporting me here: you will be providing me a stable income I can always rely on which gives me great peace of mind, supporting me create more video essays as I invest this money into increasing my quality of production, and you will also get access to my patron exclusive discord where you can chat to me and the other patrons about everything film, not to mention all of the other cool rewards.

But where exactly is this money going? I will give you full transparency. Right now I am living with my mum and step-dad. I want nothing more than to move out and have my own place but that is unrealistic right now, as my income varies by up to 300% some months and I have no idea if my job will even exist in a years time because of article 13 and other changes that may just end my career with a Thanos snap.

With most of the money you give to me, I will be saving it up to finally buy my own place, probably a cheap old flat. Then once I buy said home: I will start thinking about hiring a team, hiring a PA to help me organise my work so I can make more videos, hiring a professional editor so I can pump out even more videos and increase the quality of my essays with fancy graphics. There are a lot of things I can spend money on to improve The Closer Look, as right now, it is just a one man band.

My lifetime goal is to start a media company, one similar to Rooster Teeth as it churns out content for dozens of shows, from sciency things to The Closer Look. That is my end game which I work towards every day of my life, and with every dollar you give to me on Patreon; that dream of mine will take a one step closer to becoming a reality :)

Thank you so much for supporting me, if you ever want to chat about anything at all you can always find me on the patron exclusive discord.

Have a fantastic day :)

Goals
$529 of $5,000 per video essay
The money will go to my head. I will live a crazy, unsustainable lifestyle where I OD on Pepsi Max Cherry and BBQ Pringle's every night. At this point: I will begin to realise by true brilliance, and probably start a cult around the worship of Christopher Nolan.
