Thanks to all the incredible support we receive from people just like you, we've been able to grow and improve with every video and make steps towards our dream of turning NR into a professional entertainment network. Our production quality has increased, our projects have grown bigger than we ever could have imagined, and we've been able to start new shows very often!
We really want to make it clear YOU DO NOT NEED TO PLEDGE IF YOU DON'T WANT TO. I can't stress enough that WE WILL STILL BE CREATING CONTENT ANYWAY, for Youtube and all our other platforms, without Patreon donations - but the donations help to push our content further than we have ever dared to dream. If you want to support us in other ways, please check out the descriptions in our videos and of course, be sure to subscribe to the Youtube! We also have merchandise for sale at Storenvy.
However I can't even begin to explain how much a pledge would mean to us - it would enable us to keep doing what we love for many years to come and push us beyond what we've ever created before... so thank you for even reading this page and considering it. We love you.
- Nyx, founder & director
We have a policy of transparency here at NyxRising, so if you ever want to know what we're spending money on, please ask. Pledges to NyxRising Industries go towards video creation - that means new costumes, location rental, set dressing, equipment - and merchandise creation. Thanks to your support in 2018, we're no longer paying out of pocket for videos; Nyx (director, writer and editor) is now able to work part-time (to pay bills!) and dedicate the rest of the week to the channel. Other things Patreon money has been spent on in the past are:
- Microphone - we've twice updated our audio now & are working with top range equipment
- Location shoots - expenses for shoots such as Blackwood Files, which took place over a week and several weekends and couldn't have happened otherwise!
- Costumes and sets - making new costumes and sets for our shows
- Travel expenses - getting us to locations for various shoots, as well as booking conventions overseas so we can come and meet you lovely people
- Other filming equipment - memory cards, harddrives, editing software, lighting and more
- Our merchandise at Storenvy was funded by Patreon!
Every month you'll get a selection of the perks listed on the right (higher tiers get the lower tier perks too, and physical perks come every single month), themed after the announced fandom. Not every perk is available every month - sometimes we might do two blooper videos in one month, or forego bloopers and share deleted scenes instead - but if you're expecting a perk you've not seen or received yet, shoot us a message to let us know (we don't bite!)
Our general news feed is available to all Patrons and includes things such as photos from our sets, blogs, get to know us posts, costume plans, progress shots, questions to you guys and more.
All patrons also get access to our Patreon Instagram Feed - Please remember to tell us your Instagram username so we know to accept your follow request! We post quite a lot on Instagram so be sure to check it out.
Who the hell are we anyway?
Nyx - namesake & director of NyxRising Industries videos. Chances are the video you're watching was filmed and edited by Nyx, plus they play a host of characters across the channel including Carlos & Diego from Night Vale Presents, James Potter, Robert Small and all three Washingtons in the Blackwood Files.
Bee - actress, plant mama & style guru. Despite being one of the sweetest, kindest people in the world, she plays the most incredibly petulant and frustrating characters extremely well. Catch her as Lucius in the Real Malfoys, Sirius Black in Sonorus, Steve Carlsberg in Night Vale Presents, Sera in our Dragon Age videos and more.
Sasha - actress, seamstress & Starbucks addict. We might joke that Sasha gets typecast as 'the Wife' but in all honesty, she is a fabulous actress who never fails to impress - spot her as Tina in our Fantastic Shorts, Narcissa in the Real Malfoys, Lily Evans in Sonorus, Max Caulfield in Max & Chloe in the Morning and many more!
Jack - actor, historian & real life wizard. Comedy whiz and all-round wonderful person, Jack can be found playing the drunk dad and the most eccentric characters, often at the same time. See Cecil in Night Vale Presents, Newt Scamander in our Fantastic Shorts, Charles Xavier and Abraxas Malfoy.
Chase - actor, videographer and glitter guru. Chase is hilarious, wonderful and so full of ideas. You can see him as Jacob Kowalski in our Fantastic Shorts, Peter Pettigrew in Sonorus and Brian Harding in Tales from the Cul-de-Sac (plus more to come!)
We are often joined by an absolutely incredible group of people who help us with our videos - Nahnah who plays Draco Malfoy and Ashley in the Blackwood Files, Sammi who plays Rachel Amber, Emily and Rapunzel, Reiss and Marley who play Mike and Matt respectively in Blackwood, Dom who plays Mark Jefferson & June who plays Juliet from Life is Strange and appears in our history series, and Mia and Steven who also appear in our history series. Our group grows with our ambitions and every series we put together, so watch this space. For everyone's personal social media accounts, check the descriptions on the videos they are in!
All tiers receive their rewards and those for the tiers below as well. Exclusive content will be shared through various methods as we create it, so the delivery of it may change from time to time. We trust you not to spread Patreon-only content all over the web!
Please remember to message us your Instagram username if you follow so we know who to accept! We have twice as many follow requests as we have Patrons... it's tricky to know who is a supporter and who isn't.
Your first pledge will be taken on the day you sign up but after this you will be charged on the 1st of every month. This way you can have access to all your perks straight away!
Any content that is not exclusive will go up to the public a couple of weeks after it is available on Patreon. However you will get first look at everything, including snippets of upcoming channel content, and much of it *will* be completely exclusive!
