Hi there! Thank you for checking out my Patreon page.
Jess the Drag..who?My name is Shoukei Tam, also known as Jess the Dragoon. I am an independent animator who does anime-style animations using an amazing software called Adobe Flash. So in short I'm an indie anime flash animator. If you'd like to have a quick look at what my animation looks like, you can visit my youtube channel.
So this is how this whole Patreon thing works...Step 1)
Choose your reward from the list of available rewards. The more you pledge, the more rewards you get.
Enter the amount you want to pledge and click the orange "Become a Patron" button on the upper-left of this page.
Wait. Your money will not go out of your account until I create a Paid Post here on Patreon for a completed animation. So no worries.
I will work on the animation and add in your rewards in the process. (please refer to rewards list for further details about the rewards)
When I finish a new animation, I will create a Paid Post for it here. You will get to watch it exclusively on Patreon before anyone else.
Patreon will charge you for the Paid Post that I've made.
So when will there be a new animation to watch???
When I'll complete an animation is indefinite. What's for sure is I'll always be working on my animations. Day and night. It's a hard, lengthy and tedious process to produce high quality animations. But rest assured, I WILL finish them.
So where do these collected funds go???Voice Over (VO) Artists
VO's are the people who speak for the characters in my animation. They give life to animated characters and make animations way more awesome then ever. Without them, I'd probably only be able to do silent films. Voice Over Artists deserve to be paid because they are talented people too.
Music and Soundtracks
I know that there are lots of free music out there but it is almost always hard to find suitable music/soundtracks that suit well with an animated sequence that is free to use at the same time! So with the funds collected, I can pay for soundtracks that are suitable but not free, which in turn, saves me a huge amount of time hunting for a suitable free piece to use, which in turn, allows me to finish off my animations faster!
Other than the above, part of the funds will be used to buy food and pay the bills because like everyone else, I'm human and I need to conform to human needs to live. I need to survive to do animation.
What animation is in the works right now???I have a lot of ideas in mind to turn into animations for my youtube channel - from animating the HTTYD2 teaser trailer to making an anime version of the famous Yuna's Sending sequence at Kilika from FInal Fantasy X to animating an MLP:FiM-Bishoujo anime fanimation (I'm not a brony though but I like Sailormoon). Anyway, currently I'm working on and original webseries called Super Hero Clock.
