About Shane

Starting in 2015, ShaneBrained began as GamesBrained, a channel which focused primarily on video game reviews and trivia/timeline explanation videos. As time as gone on and the channel became ShaneBrained, the topics covered have expanded to movie/television, character analysis, Asian travel videos, a full separate Let's Play channel (ShaneBrained Plays), and a separate channel focused on Koei-Tecmo's "Warriors" series (Warriors Dojo).

Making videos on these subjects is my passion, and I hope to continue doing so for many years. That's where you come in.

What does the Patreon money go towards?

Creating videos is a time-consuming and expensive task. When hardware breaks down, and it always does, the cost of fixing or replacing the tools I need to continue making content (microphones, capture cards, computer hardware) has always come out of my pocket, which needless to say is limited. First of all, the money gained from your donations will go towards replacing broken equipment, and buying/upgrading tools (especially video editing software). 

Second, as donations continue to grow, creating videos can start to become more and more of my fulltime job. With more time to dedicate to making content, I would be able to establish a weekly video schedule, along with streaming schedule, and bring you more content than I ever could do without your support.

Third, with even more support, I would like to be able to hire an editor or assistant to help me get videos out even more frequently, and at an even higher quality. This is a truly long-term goal, but hey, you asked.

So... are you doing rewards?

Short answer: Yes!

Patrons of various tier levels will gain different levels of early access, ranging from 1 week to always having immediate access to everything I make without waiting. Be sure to check the different tier levels to determine which one is right for you!

Anything else?

I think that covers everything, but if anything else pops up I'll be happy to add it in here. Always feel free to fire off any questions to me and I'll try to get back to you as soon as I can. Cheers!
