Patreon is a crowdfunding platform that enables fans to become patrons of the arts. With Patreon, you may pledge any amount youâ€™d like to give on a monthly basis to help support the production of Season 4. We choose to use Patreon as a means to fund this season becauseÂ we know fans don’t want to wait to see new episodes… like you had to for Season 3. This season, episodes will be filmed, edited and published once per month.
Many have noticed we soft-launched our Patreon account early this week, at the time of writing we already have 19 patrons who have pledged a total of $255. A great start!
Moving forward, the cast and crew have agreed to work below industry-standard rates – but even at the ratesÂ we agreed upon, we still require a minimum of $1500/episode. Before we reach this goal, it means there will be noÂ time for prep work, a rushed production day, small cast, small crew, only one scene at one location. It also means if other professional work opportunities ariseÂ for a cast or crew members, they will have to do that instead; this could mean delays in productionÂ orÂ compromised quality. If we reach our goal $5000/episodeÂ itÂ would alleviateÂ these other concerns – andÂ could make longerÂ episodes withÂ more scenes and locations, and a largerÂ cast.
The first episode of Season 4, “Drinks with Dad” has already been completed and uploaded. This one was produced thanks to a generous donation from the cast and crew of Season 4, to help kick-off our Patreon. Patrons who pledge $3 or more per month can see it now by click here!
