The Trident Network was built on the idea that we can best lower barriers for both content creators and potential fans by digitizing the art and making it free to publish and to consume. Our content creators pay us nothing to put their work on our platform, and viewers and listeners can access our content for free. We believe this structure allows people from diverse locales and more backgrounds to more easily create and enjoy art.
However, a byproduct of this system is that we do not generate income directly from operations. Our goal is to build up to having sponsors and providing services and workshops that generate sustainable income so we can not only survive, but thrive and be able to pay creators for their hard work.
In the immediate, we need help from those who believe in our work to help us grow and reach that goal
How Does this Work?
Think of it like when someone buys a coffee for the person behind them in line at Starbucks. The person who paid gets their coffee and the satisfaction of knowing they helped someone else. Now add to it that some cool perks for buying that same extra coffee and you've got our Patreon setup.
What is Patreon?
You may have heard of Kickstarter or Indiegogo before. Artists and entrepreneurs fundraise startup cash or production funding all in one go. Patreon has created an option where you can set up a recurring monthly donation. Much like becoming a subscriber or member at your local PBS network, you get perks and gifts depending on your membership level.
The three primary Patreon levels for Trident are:
With as little as $3 a month you get a mention on your favorite show or by your favorite video team. For $6 per month you also get a Trident sticker in the mail. You can see our Triple-Triple patrons shouted out on our website for all to see and revel in their generosity!
No matter how much you give, you can feel good about helping people who are passionate about their art and an organization that is trying to change the way artists are treated and valued.
Become a Patron
Becoming a Patreon Patron is extremely easy. All you have to do is go to Trident's Patreon Page and select the membership level you want and check out. You can cancel at any time if your circumstances change.
