About

We’re Socratica — a small educational film studio with big dreams. You know us for our high-quality video lessons about math, science, and programming, especially PYTHON.

Over the course of five years, we’ve made 32 excellent Python videos. They're smart and funny, and we love making them. You’ve asked us for more. You’ve urged us to make videos faster. The thing is — we’re working as fast as we can, given our small team and limited resources. 

To make videos any faster, we need your help.

We propose to make the next 20 Python videos over the course of one year. To do this, we’re going to need to write a lot of scripts, film a lot, and get some editing help. Here’s our estimated budget:

We’re asking you to help us raise these funds in the next 4 weeks - by October 20th.

This would allow us to start production in November, which would mean a steady stream of Python videos starting December 1st, 2019.

If you value what we do, please consider backing our project!  Even if you can’t support us today, send out the message to all the Python enthusiasts you know. Every bit gets us closer to our goal.

Thank you from all of us at Socratica.

Risks and challenges

We've been making videos for our YouTube channel since 2013. In that time, we've made over 500 videos, and we've learned a lot about what can go wrong in video production. Sometimes a camera fails. Often our software crashes. A special effects shot might take longer than we think it will. But we ALWAYS find a way to make it work!
