What is Doorway Studios?We are a very small studio in the Seattle, Washington area focused on making films, shows, music, comics, books, and more. Our goal is to start small and work our way up over the years to be a stable studio. We currently produce three web-shows. Pavel Hall, Trial of Leaves, and The Escape Pod. Our resident musician Nyro. And web-comic Necrosis.
A lot of stuff, right? It takes a lot of time and effort to make all of these, and for most of them, we do not see any money back. The Patreon allows us to make money every month off of the work that we do so that we can keep making things. Most of us have a full time day job and/or school so it is hard to focus on work that we don't wanna do and work we want to be doing for the rest of our lives.
Where does the money go?Helping us through Patreon will allow us to put out content faster, have better production quality, be able to do new things, and be able to eat/pay rent. As of now, we have a few ideas we wish to produce into either short films, feature films, or series, but don't have the dough to do so.
All the money that goes to this Patreon either goes to budget for projects or payment.
We also run a show that uses Fair Use all the time, and since YouTube is a broken piece of garbage, we don't make money on a lot of episodes because of Copyright Claims. Helping us on Patron will help out when we can't make money on a video we spent ages on.
What do I get for being a Patron?For right now our biggest reward is the ability to see things early right here on Patreon, but with more Patrons helping us, the more we will be able to give out some kick ass rewards such as physical rewards. All reward tiers also get their name in the credits of what we make. Every film, book, and album we produce under your stay will have your name. You also get the chance to prove that you don't need a big studio and big money to make art.
All we need is you.
