As our client work has grown, we've had less time to make tutorials. But that doesn't mean we're sitting idly by. It just means the stuff we figure out and build takes longer to share.
We have plenty of project files, setups, rigs, etc. each month. For a long time, those files went to our upper tier patrons and some became tutorials. But keeping all of this straight while we're busy is tough. So over the last few months, we've decided to simplify and diversify.
We started by transitioning our Patreon supporters to receive these files for $5 each month. We always felt that the value we gave to our $10-30 tiers was good, but instead of just providing good value, we'd rather make this content more accessible and a total no-brainer.
Additionally, pricing it at $5/mo makes it compatible with other platforms like YouTube memberships, KoFi, etc. That's partly why we switched to our support link at the end of our videos. We know people have issues with certain platforms, so we're making our work available on more of them so you can choose what feels right. As we use Gumroad as our processor, we might also make these files available as a subscription there.
What's in the files?
In the past, these files have contained useful rigs, parts of upcoming products—many of them were for Glitchlord and Corona—and more basic files like textures. Sometimes they're R&D for upcoming tutorials. Basically, most things that we build, can share, and think someone out there will find useful, end up in our monthly elements. Again, our goal is to deliver way more value than $5. For less than the price of a coffee at Starbucks you'll get projects and built elements to save you time working. And if you stay on, you'll have an arsenal of tools to work from.
