Hey Everybody, Edo here,
Welcome to my first Kickstarter as a content creator! Over the past three years, I've been thrilled to contribute to the board game and Kickstarter community with Game Reviews, KS Advice, and Industry Q&As on my Gaming with Edo YouTube Channel.
The reality is I love making video content for the board game community. It is amazingly rewarding! At the same time, over this last year, I've created a lot of content and become more and more frustrated by the limitations of my equipment: Mic, Camera, Software, etc. I'm on Kickstarter now specifically to raise funds to buy improved equipment (to make Season 4 awesome) as well as allow me to create new types of content.
Boy, what a busy 3 years it has been. As a general cadence, I've tried to do 2 Game Reviews and 1 League video a week, but with Q&As and KS Previews it is often more. You can check out the Edo's Game Reviews wall, the League of Gamemakers wall, and the summary below.

Risks and challenges
A season of YouTube content requires a substantial and sustained effort. Having completed three years of content already, I'm fully aware of the effort and time commitment required to film, edit, upload, and share content.
Over the course of a calendar year, an assortment of personal/life matters can come up. I endeavor to always stay a few weeks ahead of schedule to mitigate this risk, but in the event something unexpected occurs, I'll endeavor to get back on track as quickly as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
