Thank you for checking out the Previously Unknown Patreon page and considering making a contribution. In addition to our mission of “sharing everything you wish someone told you about making independent films”, we want this information to always be FREE to all.

We’re insatiable for good stories. We want original content/stories in theaters. Stories from diverse voices. There is no monopoly on Talent. It’s everywhere-- all over the world.

Not everyone can afford to go to Film School. And frankly, many Film Schools ONLY teach the technical elements of a filmmaking, failing to provide tangible direction and/or actionable steps toward empowering students to own careers and create personalized material.

Previously Unknown is trying to fill the educational void between PASSION and PRAGMATISM, so that Creatives, from all walks of life, stand a chance at making a living in this crazy, ridiculous, wonderful, magical business.

Thank you so much for all your support.
Cheers!

You should be saving all your dollars to make your own movies, BUT maybe you’re using an ad-blocker or you just want to show some gratitude. This is an incredibly meaningful gesture of  generosity. We sincerely thank you and can’t wait to see the movies you’ll make.

First Money is ALWAYS the hardest.
But it just takes one "yes" to make the sea of "no" worth it.
