http://patreon.com/thorium - For an early look at Thorium Remix 2015, consider supporting development of Thorium Remix 2016.
I've been working on Thorium Remix 2015 for 4 years. Am currently editing extremely part-time. It looks like TR2015 will be completed with part-time hours, but I do need to plan for completion of TR2015 right now.
That's because these video editing tasks would absolutely benefit from full-time hours. Even after TR2015 is released on YouTube. There's YEARS of video capture, editing and narrative shaping work to do.
I'm not asking now because of any state of TR2015... I'm asking now because I should have asked sooner and have simply been too busy. But in September I'll either be editing Thorium videos with far more time, or far less time. And I'm already extremely limited for time.
Please help support these efforts via http://patreon.com/thorium , and I'll be keeping you in-the-loop regarding peer-review of early edits, and my plans to ensure the widest audience possible is exposed to Thorium, MSR & Nuclear concepts.
