Cheshire Cat Studios is finally selling out! And we're giving the reins of power to you, the people!

Wait... Who are you again?

If you're reading this bit of text right now, chances are you're already familiar with who we are and what we do. But just in case you've stumbled across this page by accident:

Hey there. We're called Cheshire Cat Studios, and we're basically a group of friends trying to promote critical thinking and healthy skepticism via our content. And if we can make our viewers laugh along the way with our uncensored and often unabashed style of comedy - all the better.

We initially started out as an obscure hodgepodge website/forum, and over the course of the past two years we've managed to crawl our way into Z-list Internet stardom. (We have a good shot at infiltrating the Y-list circle pretty soon, though.) 



Okay. So, what do you do exactly?


Right now we have several video series under our belt. Our main flagship series is the CCS Video Podcast. It's an 'animated' roundtable chat kind of show where we sit down and try to scrutinize this or that issue related to the entertainment industry every episode. And as the name suggests, all of our discussions are visualized with our unique madcap style of presentation and illustrated avatars. Then there's the CCS After Hours Podcast, which is a spin-off of the CCS Video Podcast and is actually closer to a more traditional audio-only podcast, where various members of Cheshire Cat Studios pair off and discuss the latest bit of news from the entertainment industry that has caught either their attention or ire. CineMax and LaughingMan also have their own video series, Wasted Effort, which borrows the visual style of the full CCS Video Podcast and applies it to more concise topics.


In addition to all of this, we've also recently launched a webcomic series (drawn by the Fuboo) and we get all sorts of ideas for new projects that we never get around to due to the lack of time or resources. Which is what's brought us here.



Alright. You seem to have a good thing going on. So, what do you need my money for?


Over the course of this past year, our YouTube channel has skyrocketed in popularity from 1K subscribers to 22K. And while that might seem like an impressive feat (and trust us, we're grateful to each and everyone of you), as far as compensation for our work goes we haven't seen that high of a boost in the ad-revenue that keeps us moving forward. (YouTube seems to have a weird system that favors quantity over quality, sadly.)

And because ad-revenue has been dismal at best, the content you've seen from us so far has been funded entirely out of our own pockets. And since we're constantly striving to improve the quality of our work and/or try to do bigger and better things, the ad-revenue that we do make gets immediately reinvested back into our shows and webcomics to make them bigger and better.

Look, if it seems like we're trying to paint ourselves as the underdogs here, we're not. We're just telling it how it is. All of us have college lives and/or full-time jobs, so at the moment Cheshire Cat Studios is just a passion project for our members. Even so, we do strive to release content on a regular basis; and believe us: even if we don't make a dime via Patreon chances are we'll still continue making videos. (Mostly 'cos we love hearing the sounds of our own voices.)

Fair enough. Say I decide to throw a couple of bucks to you guys every month. What do I get in return?


Isn't that warm fuzzy feeling that you get in your heart enough? :3

Just kiddin'. Of course it isn't.

The list of rewards for being a patron is available at the bottom of this page. We might not be able to offer much, but at least we would like to make you guys feel like you're actually being rewarded for your support. In other words: No intangible 'Thank You!'s or pointless names in the credits. (Unless that's something you actually want, that is. If that's the case, then sure. It doesn't really cost us anything, and we'd be happy to do it.)

We might amend and/or expand the list of rewards as time goes on. For the time being, however, we want to keep our asking prices affordable and our rewards competitive with other online personalities.



Look, I like you guys... And I would really like to help you out. But I'm kind of down-and-out as far as finances go right now. Is there any way I can support Cheshire Cat Studios asides from Patreon?


Well, just the fact that you enjoy our content enough to even be reading this right now means a lot of us. And as far as being in a bind: trust us, we know the feeling.

If you would still like to support Cheshire Cat Studios, one thing you can do is spread our content around on various social media platforms, message boards, chatrooms, etc. We've learned that word of mouth is one of the most effective tools of getting more views, fans, and potential supporters. Sending our videos to others who would enjoy them would be greatly appreciated.

If you'd like to help fund us then perhaps you can check out the advertisers on our YouTube videos and the CheshireCatStudios.com website itself. It's a quick click on a product or service that you might find useful, it doesn't cost you anything, and it helps us bring you bigger, better, and more frequent content.

Also, don't hesitate to like and subscribe to our YouTube channel. Maybe leave a positive comment even. Every little bit of endorsement helps.

And so here we are. We've explained our situation to you. You've heard our story. So, if you'd like to help Cheshire Cat Studios promote critical thinking as well as make the occasional immature dick jokes here and there, please help us out anyway you can. In return, we promise that we'll try to make it worth your while by bringing you the continually improving content that you've come to enjoy.

Thank you!
- The CCS Gang
