About Nicki Sun

Hello Sunshines and Welcome to my Patreon Page! 

My name is Nicki Sun and I love creating, and creating opportunities for fellow female and BIPOC creators. I quit my full-time job so I could start my own media company and focus more on the things that I am truly passionate about and that is launching not only a YouTube channel, but a full-blown WEBSITE dedicated to all things tech & filmmaking called TechNicki Speaking (it's a play off of "technically speaking" — get it?)

Ten years ago, I created my show, Now You Know, in hopes to shine a spotlight on faces and voices that were often underrepresented in mainstream media. Focusing particularly on Asian American and multi-ethnic communities, I found that interviewing these freelance creators, artists, entrepreneurs, and entertainers who pursued unconventional career paths, was not only inspiring to me, but also to others who were wanting to pursue their dreams as well.

Along the way, I got the filmmaking bug and got SUPER into tech, which led me to a career-defining moment hosting the Post Production campus stage during NAB Show 2018 for an entire week. I vividly recall introducing and hyping up male speaker after male speaker to the stage. For a media, broadcast, and entertainment tradeshow that attracts over 100,000 people every year, I found myself asking, "Where are the women?!"

I've been blessed to work in all parts of media. I was used to being one of the only females within my crew. I was also a major tomboy who always wanted to be in "the boys' club." I'm grateful to the several male allies I've gained along this journey whom have assisted in providing me wonderful opportunities, but it's time to add more women and other underrepresented communities to the mix. I've never desired special treatment being a woman or a person of color. I just want acknowledgement that we exist, and that by seeking and including our unique perspectives only add authenticity and life to the stories we share on screen. And perhaps in me unapologetically and bolding expressing my passion for technology and filmmaking, it might encourage and make space for others who've felt marginalized in this industry to do the same.

My goal with TechNicki Speaking is to not only to be a resource for those interested in filmmaking/content creation, but to also utilize my background as an interviewer to spotlight my fellow female and BIPOC filmmakers, share their work, and upcoming projects in need of more incredible talent on their crews.

By becoming a supporter on Patreon, you are not only helping me actualize this dream of mine, but you'll also be a part of contributing to this much needed change in this industry, with some cool perks along the way!

What I will do with your money:

  • I will be able to focus more on creating awesome content for the community
  • Website hosting
  • Marketing & branding support
  • Technical support
  • Expanding reach to connect with content creators around the world
  • Expanding and growing my production team, from directors and cinematographers to editors and colorists
  • Additional equipment

If you'd like to support my endeavors beyond subscribing to my YouTube channel and spreading the word, kindly consider joining my Patreon with a monthly (different perk levels!) or annual membership (new!).
