About Incognita Enterprises

Our current production is the multi award-winning web series: Shakespeare Republic: #AllTheWebsAStage (The Lockdown Chronicles) (2020)



WELCOME TO OUR PATREON PARTY!

In this unprecedented time of COVID-19 and all that entails, we would like to say a HUGE "Thank YOU!!!" to all our wonderful patrons who are so generously supporting us at this time. With all our work currently on hold, it is your generosity that is keeping us motivated to develop new work and come up with new initiatives to keep creating in these uncertain times. We are so grateful to all of you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for so tangibly showing us your support. You all rock!!

Welcome to Incognita Enterprises' Patreon!

If you'd like to help support our ongoing work, just choose a Membership Level crammed with LOADS of interesting stuff you can't get anywhere else, according to what you feel you'd like to contribute. Once you've chosen your level of support, voila! You will have access to everything included in that Membership Package. You'll also receive updates each time we make some new content available in that level of membership and have our eternal gratitude :)

But seriously, THANK YOU for even considering supporting us and our work. As independent artists we just cannot do what we do without the support of generous supporters of the Arts and we so appreciate each and every one of you. We wish you all good things and look forward to having you join us on this new stage of our creative journey as we create a whole raft of new, exciting and collaborative content together!

To date, all our works (including  Shakespeare Republic) have been created via crowd-funding, courtesy of our awesome supporters and/or sponsorship from equally awesome businesses. While we will continue to do stand-alone crowdfunding campaigns via services such as the Australian Cultural Fund and the Documentary Australia Foundation for individual projects from time to time, we are bringing all our projects together under Patreon to help us streamline the fundraising process and cover the day-to-day business expenses that our projects accrue. This will help us continue to create the work that you - our fabulous supporters and extended Incognita family - have come to know us for!

WHY DO WE HAVE A PATREON ACCOUNT?

We have several projects on the go and, after a chat with one of our brilliant extended Incognita family from the USA (hello Emma!), we thought we'd set up a system that would enable us to form an VIP club of those supporters of our work who wanted exclusive access to behind the scenes content, video Q&A's, sneak peeks of the work and more and who would be happy to pay a small amount each month, which would help us continue to create content. So ... here we are!

To see a sample of the kind of thing we'll be sharing exclusively with you as one of our Patreon Peeps, here is the teaser of our behind the scenes videos from Season Two of Shakespeare Republic featuring Republic members, Nadine Garner, Alan Fletcher, Michala Banas, Christopher Kirby, Sally McLean, Billy Smedley and our whole cast & crew:
We will be doing monthly live Q&A's, exclusive production diaries (beginning in the script development stages right though to post-production), giveaways, live behind-the-scenes videos, early previews of the work, an interactive voting section where you will get to put your ideas forward for the work and we're even thinking about doing a regular podcast with interviews with cast and crew ... plus whatever else we can think of, so there will be plenty to keep you entertained as one of our valued Patreon supporters, beyond the projects themselves.

If you have questions about using Patreon or encounter any problems with your account, the Patreon support team is really friendly and helpful. You can send them a message by clicking here. If you have questions specifically about our page or rewards, our work, or just want to say hi, you can send us a message directly that only we answer.

Thank you for joining our other fabulous Patreon Peeps! We look forward to getting to know you better on the other side of the Patreon door ... :)

With much love and gratitude from the entire Incognita team x
