Dear Readers,

Writing about movies on Deep Focus Review (DFR) has been an integral part of my life since 2006. And now with Patreon, I have been able to share my love of film with contributing members. It is my hope that if you visit this website regularly, you will consider becoming a member on Patreon to help keep the site going strong.

Contributing on Patreon offers several membership benefits such as access to exclusive content, a chance to influence the type of reviews and articles that appear on the site, and the opportunity to commission a review or essay (depending on your level of contribution). When you become a member on Patreon, you get access to exclusive movie reviews, editorials, and streaming recommendations. You can also vote in regular polls to determine what I write about on the website, such as the monthly poll on the next entry in The Definitives. Also, I’m currently in the process of developing a podcast that will have Patreon-exclusive episodes, with a launch date planned for June 2019.

My initial goal is for contributions to reach $250 a month. When that happens, I will self-publish a book of essays. All Patrons will receive a digital and print copy of the book (shipped to you for free), which will include an introduction, original essays, plus several entries of The Definitives. When I reach $500 a month, I will add additional Patreon rewards, as well as develop additional enhancements to the website.

Here’s a breakdown of the membership benefits.

  • STAR ($1 a month).
    • Exclusive access to DFR’s Patreon-exclusive blog, including:
      • Patreon-exclusive reviews, blogs, and ever-developing Top 10 Films of the Year list
      • Weekly streaming recommendations
      • Polls to determine which films will be reviewed on the website
      • COMING SOON: The Patreon-exclusive DFR Podcast! 
  • SCREENWRITER ($5 a month).
    • Pick a movie and I’ll review it on Deep Focus Review
    • Plus, all Star-level perks.
  • DIRECTOR ($10 a month).
    • Pick a movie and I’ll review it on Deep Focus Review. After six months, you can commission a second review, and again every six months after that.
    • Plus, all Star-level perks.
  • MOGUL ($20 a month).
    • Commission an entry in The Definitives. You and I will agree on a film that deserves entry into The Definitives, and I’ll publish an essay for you of 3,500 words or more.
    • Plus, all Star-level perks.

No matter what level of membership you choose, your contribution will be appreciated. Thank you so much for your support through the years and your continued readership.
