WHAT IS PATREON?


Patreon is a platform where content creators like myself and lovely folks like yourselves can come together and help build a foundation for your favorite projects or ideas. Patreon gives us, the content creators, the ability to give you something more in return for your support, and your pledge. If you choose to become a Patron, it can be a one time pledge or a monthly reoccurring pledge. All pledges are taken out at the beginning of each month and can be made through Paypal, Credit Card, and other currency forms.

WHO AM I/WHAT DO I DO?


Who is this person? Is probably one of the many questions you have when looking at this page. Well allow me to answer that for you!
My name is Penelope Sophia Smith, or Penni for short. I'm 21 years old with an intense drive to reach my creative dreams. I adore anime, volleyball, video games, long walks on the beach and having fun with friends. AND PUPPIES. I LOVE DOGS. 
--
I am a professional voice actress who has had the amazing opportunity to provide her voice to various forms of media. Ranging from commercials to animation and video games. A couple examples of these projects that I've been in being Sam Acacius from the Sci-Fi Visual Novel, Orion, and Yudai Sayashi from Exogenesis ~Perils of Rebirth~! I mention these two projects specifically because they are both examples of the incredible support that we can all generate together. When I'm not hard at work on these projects I create my own original and fandom audio content over on my Tumblr and on my YouTube.
If you're interested in listening to my current demo or my resume, please follow the following links:

Outside of voice over, I run a channel over on Twitch.TV called, StarletKnight, where I play a wide variety of games (with a focus on RPGs and Roguelikes) following this schedule setup. This channel has become a second love to me next to voice-over. The people I've met in the short time that I've been on Twitch (February 2014), have been some of the funniest and most inspiring folks I've had the pleasure to know and I hope to continue my experience on Twitch for a long time to come. 

I also enjoy writing and directing various forms of media. An example of such media is my own personal and ongoing project, Pizz'Amore, a dating sim where you date personified pizzas. This project is my baby and all of my friends at Seraphim Entertainment. Pizz'Amore like I said is currently ongoing and chapter 1 is available for free in the previous Pizz'Amore related link, and chapter 2 is coming out sometime this year.
I'm also working on a graphic novel project called, The Divine Lie, with my good buddy and fellow content creator, Tuesdae Butler, who is an absolute sweetheart and you guys should check her Patreon and Tumblr out. We're super excited about this project and I'll be updating more about the project as more is done!

WHAT IS THIS PATREON FOR AND WHAT AM I SUPPORTING?


To simply put what you would be supporting, if you so choose. Is me and my content. More specifically my ability to keep making content at the same pace and level or greater and things in my own life.
When considering Patreon as a platform for this, I asked tons of friends and fellow content creators what they think, what I should do, the do's and the don'ts, etc. And decided that making a Patreon that evolves with us, me AND you. A Patreon that is transparent in its approach and what you are supporting.

This Patreon will be primarily focused on my various creative ventures as well as a personal venture, that I will continue to do or reach for regardless of what happens. I want to ensure however, that there are incentives for those that choose to pledge and support me. And as the Patreon is a ever-evolving entity, if there's something you would like to see, please do let me know. This is something we're all doing together. I want to make it a nice blend of silly goals and serious goals and I truly believe in all of us!

My creative ventures being and are not limited to, Audio & Voice-Over, Twitch & Youtube: StarletKnight, and the creation of original content. As well my own personal ventures, which I will go into greater detail below!

The Breakdown!

I. Important Life Stuff:
I am a fervent supporter of being transparent with people, so I'm going to open up with you folks about one of the several reasons why I'm using Patreon.
Over the past few years, I've been trying to get a job. Time and time again I was rejected for one reason or another, the one time I actually got one they fired me because they thought my college schedule, a college not even 10 minutes down the street was too far and thought my classes would effect my ability to come to work. And while my Uncle gives me a job at his office when I really need one, it's only for a few weeks during the summer. So I want to make what I do, what I love, my job, my career.
Within these few years, I've been attending college. Good for me right? It would be good if I was getting what I was promised and paid for. I was promised hands-on experience with cameras, programs, audio equipment and far more. I was lucky to get two or three of these classes where things were merely introduced but not taught extensively. Everything else has been research or law courses. I don't the law course and researching things, but if all my free waking hours are spent writing papers in either my dorm room or even the library with next to no time to eat let alone socialize with other human beings. Then what's the point? I wasn't actually learning anything that I wanted I found. It wasn't preparing me for the career I wanted. Or what I wanted to do like it had been for many of my friends who'd gone elsewhere. Meanwhile opportunities stemming from connections I had built outside of college passed me on by.
I regret it. I wholeheartedly regret everything I let slip by or things I attempted to do but couldn't do because I couldn't put 100% into it because of college and I want to apologize for that, maybe it's not an apology to you guys, but I need to say that to myself. I want to make up for it, by doing what I love..but that's not the only reason I couldn't give 100%. It's because I didn't love myself, I wasn't BEING myself.
So recently I decided to be myself. I came out publicly as identifying as a girl, as a female. Now I feel much more happy and in tune with myself. However concerns remain. Finding or maintaining a job will only be more difficult now, I need to find the right help and somehow afford it, and I want to be where I can get the best help I can and be near where I want to live or work.
Thus goals relating to this will be important and long standing. 

Definite Goals Being:
Moving to New Jersey close to New York City/Portions of Rent.  (Achieved.)
Supporting portions of my transition.
Supporting the Twitch Broadcast.
Upgrading and maintaining equipment.
Building a sound booth for recording.
Getting a camera to make actual videos. There are plenty of sketches that pop in my head that I want to have done.
Supporting me and my friend Lasha's dream of making 
Camp Cryptids a reality:  

There are some things I might be able to afford on my own, but I cannot be entirely certain. So thus to remedy this, I want to keep doing what I love, uninterrupted and for you guys! Now onto the other sections.
II. Audio & Voice-Over:
Audio and Voice-Over has been my love ever since I was very very young. As young as 12 years of age, I've been, of my own accord, learning what to do with myself in front of a microphone, what microphones are, how they work and what it means to work with audio. I've been blessed with the opportunity to not only pursue both professionally in recent years, but blessed with the chance to share what I love doing with all of you and to hear what you think.
However my love and passion in this case can be rather expensive to maintain and even more so to improve. Things break, things go wrong, and things need to be replaced or upgraded. So the money that I will be budgeting from my own funds and pledges here on Patreon for audio and voice-over will be going to things such as replacing a mic stand, to upgrading my setup, to building a booth and so on and so forth.
III. Twitch (StarletKnight):
Streaming on Twitch is something I love doing. Playing video games, entertaining people, interacting people, building a community, nay a family, has become something incredibly dear and important to me. Like Audio & Voice-Over in this case this is something I pour a lot of love and time into, however equipment can break or deteriorate. Other things I want to do for my channel is make animated notifications and even personalized emotes for the community, all of which would be uploaded to the channel via Franker Face Z or BetterTwitchTV. I want to set aside Viewer Date Nights where I play with folks in which Patreons get first dibs, random giveaways, and much much more. This channel is for all of us and I will take all suggestions as it means a lot to me and I want to make it the best experiences possible. It'll also allow me to stream more often.
IV. Being Creative!:
I love being creative. I LOVE making things. Pizz'Amore and The Divine Lie are only a couple of things I hope to make. And I hope to keep doing that as long as I can.
