You will get access to all my Patreon only content. You will also have your name added to the list of contributors. I have this small donation here for all you people that don't have big incomes. Just 12$ a year makes a huge difference to me! It really helps!
$3per I want my patron to donate to me every time I make a film.
About Douglas E Knapp
For each video that I produce I would like you to contribute, so that I can put more time and better equipment into these videos and have more free time to work on what helps you!
Remember that even contributing 1$ per month is enough to help me reach the goal of doing this full time. There are thousands of Blender users and if only a few hundred of you buy me a beer a month, I could survive and if a few thousand donated only 1 Euro, I could also survive on that! I think it is a great deal. You give me a buck and I give you a video that takes hours to research and produce.
WHY ON PATREON ?
I believe sharing, transmitting knowledge, learning and collaborate is the most important. Blender Patrion is a totally free tutorial project and part of the free culture ( as Wikipedia, Blender, Krita, Linux, etc... ). All episodes and content around it are released as Creative Commons attribution license. This means I encourage crazy thing like : commercial usage, re-publishing and modifications/derivations for your own project ( 3D models, movies, video-game, fan-art ... everything is possible ). I even offer the source files and I create them using 100% open-source tools.
That's how I like art : Free/Libre.
But how to make a living doing tutorials? I don't want to waste my time with a big website. I don't want to have to work for someone else pushing what they want. I want to give you what you need and want. I want to have a relationship with you! I really don't want to do any marketing or advertising. I want you to be free to experience my work without stress. I don't want to set up paywalls or work with DRM. I want the people from poor lands to have equal access to the rich guys from San Francisco. You need freedom. I just want to make tutorials for you!... Asking for your patronage is the best solution.
I ask your sponsor only for new tutorials for Blender and it happens around one time by month But I might do more, especially if I get enough patrons. I would like to do one a week! Patreon offers you the possibility to setup a maximum limit per month. This way, you are totally in control with your budget and safe if you want to patron me.
Thanks for your contributions!
