Production time for a single episode can run anywhere between 6-12 hours depending on the length of the movie or show, research, writing, editing, recording, editing again, and finally, posting across social media.
In other words, it’s work.
If you’d like to support the show and the work I do, here are a few suggestions:
Like us on Facebook
A very simple, easy way to support is to like Cinematic Doctrine’s Facebook page. By doing so, you increase the relevancy of its social media presence. This is important, especially when trying to fight Facebook’s algorithm. In fact, by liking the page and interacting with its subsequent content, Facebook’s algorithm will increase the page’s reach.
There are a few benefits to following the Facebook page, too. In following Cinematic Doctrine, you’ll be treated to updates on movie news, episode progress, and funny memes from across the internet.
Our Admin team is incredibly active, and there’s always something new and fun to look forward to, so get on over there and smash that like button!
Review our Podcast
Another great way to support Cinematic Doctrine is to leave a review on your respective podcast app! Whether you listen on iTunes, Stitcher, or anywhere else, you’re likely able to leave a rating and review which will go a long way in increasing the legitimacy of the podcast.
Another benefit to supporting the podcast in this way is letting a podcast app know how certain podcasts relate to each other. Unlike YouTube’s algorithm, which helps to connect you with content you’ll be interested in, podcast apps are still figuring out how to do this. However, one way that works is by reviewing podcasts you like.
For example, if you listen to Popcorn Theology, another Christian movie podcast, then listen to Cinematic Doctrine, the application will list these podcasts in a “Listener’s also Like-” tab. A review will reinforce this, and increase the podcasts reach.
Consider Becoming a Patron
If you want to support Cinematic Doctrine monetarily, Patreon is an easy way to help cover the cost of production! With increased output and the introduction of new segments on the podcast, becoming a Patron Supporter helps ease the stress of purchasing new equipment, rental costs, and binge drinking coffee and macchiatos at Starbucks!
In becoming a Patron , you’ll also acquire unique benefits only available to supporters of the show, some of which you can see above. For as little as $3 a month, you’ll have access to a movie-poll in which Patron’s vote on a movie I review at the end of the month. In other words, you gain some influence on the show!
