I'm Jacques, and I am a 20-year-old addon developer for Blender. My greatest achievement so far is the development of the Animation Nodes (AN) addon which implements a new animation system into Blender that is flexible enough to be used for many other things as well.

Over the course of the last few years Animation Nodes got more and more attention from the international Blender community. Seeing all the cool animations people upload really motivate me to continue to work on this system in the future.

In the first 2.5 years of development money was not a problem for me because I still lived with my parents. During that time I also received some one-time donations which I'm very thankful for. However as I become older I have to pay more and more bills myself. So a somewhat constant income is essential. Patreon allows me get exactly that.

Being able to work on AN instead of having to find another job would make a dream come true. Of course I will continue to develop Animation Nodes either way, the only question is how much time I will have, not only for programming, but also for coming up with new ideas on how to make it grow as fast in the future as it did in the past.

I'm not quite sure what rewards to offer here on Patreon that are actually useful to people. I have been doing most things for free anyway, like sharing things that are still work in progress or helping people with Blender, AN and Python. Giving these things exclusively to the ones who have the money to support me will only make things worse in my opinion. Let me know if you have any other ideas!
