Hi, I'm Sid and welcome to the Patreon page for the Sidcourse. It's like discourse, but, you get it.

The Sidcourse is a video essay/micro documentary series that aims to take a personal perspective on video games. The series discusses the medium through the lens of art, mental health and human viewpoints.

In previous episodes, I've spoken about the Art of Metal Gear Solidwhat makes Games relaxing and the positive impact of video games when discussing topics like depression and mental health..

What is Patreon?

Patreon is a service where you can pledge to send a regular payment to creators, so they can support themselves and keep making new stuff.

Patreon is a better alternative for creators and their audience as it alleviates the need for advertising and/or sponsorship. With a regular income directly from their audience, creators have the freedom to create the content they choose without having to resort to shady practices such as clickbait.

Patreon means that creators serve their viewers, not advertisers or corporate sponsors. And where the viewers choose what deserves to be made and who deserves a voice.

How often will I end up paying?

You'll be paying per video. As the frequency of the episodes is irregular, my aim is to try and release a video once every 1-2 months. Granted, the research and production that goes into each video vary in scope and there may be spots of time when a video isn't released. I can't ask anyone to pay monthly when there's no guarantee for content in that month. However, in time, if this becomes a full-time endeavour with more regular content, I'll make the switch to monthly.

Why do you need the money?

At present, I work a full-time job, run several side projects and freelance work for my income. This takes up the vast majority of my time along with mental health counseling for people who choose to come to me and seek someone to listen to. Because of limited time, I'm unable to balance working, counselling and producing content regularly. Through Patreon, I would be able to remove some (if not all) of my side projects and freelance work, and potentially my full-time job to focus my efforts on my passions and producing this series and other spin-offs.

The primary goal is to generate enough revenue from Patreon to pay the bills. As well as purchase equipment such as hardware, software, services etc. As the Patreon campaign grows, I'll be able to produce more content in various forms.

What's in it for me?

All patrons in the $3 and above will receive access to the video 24 hours prior to release and supports in the $9 and above tiers will see their name at the end of the videos.
