About the Creator
Hi! My name is Mel and I'm a Toronto-based cinematographer and narrative filmmaker. I first started video-editing when I was 12 years old, after being inspired by all these amazing MapleStory animations on YouTube! Since then, YouTube has helped me discover a way to mix my passion for storytelling and video games into one. 

That journey all began 10 years ago, and now I'm proud to announce that I recently graduated with a degree in Media Production (major in TV and Video). Throughout the next 10 years, I hope to use my skills in video production to continue producing cinematic gaming content, dramatic short films, and lifestyle vlogs!

A positive example of gaming content would be MapleStory Changed (2006 vs. 2015), where so many of you could relate to the memories in game. Whether it brought laughter or tears, we definitely had a lot of fun just remembering the "old times."


Why Patreon?

I've always had fun making videos for YouTube. YouTube never was, and never will be about how much money I can make, because what I really care about is creating content that will inspire or move people!

Patreon is just a platform that provides fans with the opportunity to directly fund my creative work. Pledges can be any amount you are comfortable with, and it can be adjusted at any time! Please keep in mind - do not feel obligated to donate (or feel bad if you become a Patron, but decide to stop). Regardless of being a Patron or not, I will always continue creating and pushing myself to improve! And I am sincerely thankful that you are watching and supporting my content.


Future Plans?
I currently work as a wedding videographer. It's been my job for the past six years, and I love it. It also just so happens that it provides me with the perfect balance between doing what I need to do, and what I want to do.

Everyone knows that YouTube is not an easy to career to build when you're first starting out. It's definitely risky AND incredibly time-consuming. It can also be emotionally difficult when you work so hard on a video, and "the results don't show." However, despite knowing all this, I WANT to try it, and seriously see where I can go with it. In my mind, I have so many visual ideas I'd like to create for you, and with your support, it will encourage me to keep on going!

"Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs."

If we're speaking honestly, I don't plan on getting "a real full-time job" any time soon. I have too many dreams that I want to build for myself, and I rather focus my energy on that! I don't want to have regrets in the future because I wasn't willing to take a chance on myself. And if you have ambitious dreams as well, I hope you have the courage to believe in your own vision and work hard towards it! I trust that it will definitely be a more fulfilling and rewarding path. 

Alright, enough talking here~ I have to get back to editing my videos LOL thank you so much for your time. I really appreciate it!

Have a wonderful day & wishing you all the best in your future endeavors as well.

Sincerely,
Melinda Tse

$500 would be enough to cover the cost of one production. When reached, I promise to produce more short films related to gaming/romance!
