What's my story?

My name's Alana and I'm an aspiring filmmaker currently attending college with a major in film and television, and a minor in social media and digital strategies. I've been creating YouTube videos for over five years now, but I've been an editor for over seven.

I've lived thousands of lives through stories. Harry Potter was my first true love. Then came Star Wars, The Hunger Games, Doctor Who, Once Upon A Time, Supernatural, Hamilton and many, many more. My fandoms have shaped me. As an only child living with anxiety, life got pretty lonely for me. I had few friends, and little motivation to put myself out there so that I could make more. The stories that I read, watched, and loved became my world. This still remains true to this day. I don't know what I'd do without my fandoms, especially Supernatural, which has opened me up to more opportunities that I could have ever expected. 

Throughout middle school and high school, I was put down for my love of fandoms. People viewed me as silly or childish because I wore Harry Potter shirts to school, always had my nose buried in a book, and cosplayed at comic cons. If I talked too much about a TV show I loved, I was made to feel like I was being annoying. I hated going to school for this reason: I felt like (and was) an outcast. No one understood, so I took to the internet to find other people who would get it. I used my love of filmmaking to start a YouTube channel, originally focused on books, that would soon branch out into a general appreciation of all things fandom. My main goal with my YouTube channel is to spread fandom positivity and love. After my own experiences with being put down for talking about the stories that I love, I never wanted anyone else to feel the way I did. My videos are a space for people to geek out with me. I want everyone to feel welcome and accepted while watching them.

Why Patreon?

As a full time student, it's hard to balance school, a job, what little social life that I do have, and YouTube all at once. In fact, most of my free time goes directly to creating content for my YouTube channel. This results in many late nights for me, as well as long hours of editing that could be spent with friends and family. I wouldn't be doing this unless I truly loved it, and I do. I try to post a video every other day because I enjoy interacting with my audience, but posting so frequently can wear on a person. Making videos is a long, time consuming, expensive process. It's a journey that I've embarked on by myself for a long time now, and I've finally realized that I might need some help.


Where does the money go? 

The money that my audience pledges to me on here will all go back into my videos and to you, the viewers. Whether that be through the purchase of equipment to enhance video quality, camera repairs, props/costumes, marketing materials, or assisting me with channel-related travel costs - your support will help me create better content day in and day out. My budget for YouTube videos right now is almost non-existent. Every little bit will help me create more quality content. I have so many ideas for DIY projects, sketch videos, collabs, cosplays, vlogs and more, but I can't create them without your help.





Can't pledge money?

I know that many of you won't be able to pledge money, and I want you to know that it's completely okay. I want you to take care of yourselves first. You can still continue to watch all of my normal content on YouTube for free, and I will still love you forever for doing so! (Seriously, please know this. I love you from the bottom of my heart for simply taking the time out of your life to watch my videos.)

A huge thank you to Patrons.

Whether your donation is big or small, I want to give you a huge thank you hug for supporting me and my videos. I'm not kidding when I say that I can't do this without you. Thanks for being a huge part of my online fandom family!
