Patreon’s main aim is to fund the creative class. It is a crowd funding platform and is a way to get money for creating the things you as a person or company are already creating. Fans of your work are asked to or are allowed to pledge an amount of money to you or your company per month or per production piece or art work you release.
And this week Ont’ Sofa joined Patreon.
Ont’ Sofa joined Patreon with the intention to build a stronger community among fans of their work as well as supporters of patreon to support the artist that they work with to allow them to showcase the talent they have without worrying about the Price Tag (Ont’ Sofa currently charge the artists a small fee to help cover the production of the session) .
With your help Ont’ Sofa will be able to cover the cost of at least one session a day, maybe even more. Allowing the talent of musicians and songwriters who who are trying to make a go at being a full time Artist to be seen. They will also be able to carry on producing the videos you have grown to love and maybe even be able to spread their wings to more countries and cities.
