Being honest though, I may not - I'm not a 'content creator' nor do i wish to be.  I will continue to create work, which you will be able to enjoy, but this is just a way of helping support that work, and frankly I think these systems just diminish and pressure artists into churning out utter crap, which is hopefully not what you would like me to do.

By pledging anything, you help me continue to create work which is totally unproiftable and not commercially viable. Which is the dream.

About Benjamin Akira Tallamy

My name is Benjamin Akira Tallamy - I'm a UK-based artist with a background in film, music and literature.

I've been making music for about fifteen years and grew up playing with cameras, telling stories and acting.  I have no formal education, so my influences are pretty diverse but I have a penchant for the bizarre and prefer things that haunt the shadows of mainstream culture.

Recently I was awarded an Arts Council Grant to create an indie videogame called Cradlemoor - set on Dartmoor, this surrealist mystery game is a mixed-media narrative experience in the tone of Twin Peaks.

Currently trying to balance development alongside paid work is rather tricky and so I've created this Patreon, not only to create a behind the scenes window into development, but also to try and generate some extra funding towards the project and become part of the Beta-testing  when it is in a fit state for play.

Here is an example of my other work:



So what is Patreon?

Well, in economically impoverished times, for those who have always been economically impoverished, it is a way for people to support creative people  - allowing them the artistic freedom to produce new work.

If you like what I do enough to want to see it continue then you can make a monthly donation and as a result, I'll be able to keep the wolf from the door and focus on  projects, many of which will be shared here.

I have always been self-supported and so far never monetarily rich.  A lot of my work is done almost entirely in-house, even the mundane tech-stuff. With a viable revenue stream, a lot of the more mundane jobs could outsourced, giving me more time to write, record and create.

So what will I do?

Commercial success has never been a driving force in my life but I have always tried to create work which is considered and genuine.  By becoming my patron, not only will you give me the freedom to focus on my work, you'll also be encouraging me to refine and explore my craft - trying, as always, to do something unique and unusual.

With support, I will be able to avoid getting a normal job and have time to keep making weird and wonderful stuff..

Either way, thank you for taking the time to stop by and even if you can't pledge, I hope you enjoy some of the things I create.
