Support Innovative Indie Horror Filmmakers Mycho Entertainment on Patreon; Significant Perks Include Producer Credit on Mycho Films
The Mycho Entertainment Group (Hollower, Legacy of Thorn, Cleaver: Rise of the Killer Clown, Slasher House, Slasher House 2) is back at it again, unveiling their new social media outlet expansion in an attempt to push out more products and keep viewers engorged on their always expanding universe.
Patreon is an American-based membership platform that supplies business tools for creators to run a subscription content service. It helps artists in various categories build relationships and provided exclusive content and experiences to their subscribers, or “Patrons.” It’s a way for creators to receive funding directly from fans, on a reoccurring basis.
The company is based in San Francisco, California, and was established in May of 2013 by musician Jack Conte as a way to earn a living solely off of his popular Youtube videos. He later teamed up with Sam Yam and together they developed a platform in which an artist can receive a set amount of money every month, for each work of art they create. The company signed over 125,000 patrons in its first 18 months, and in May of 2017, Patreon announced it had over 50,000 active creators, 1 million monthly patrons and was on track to issue its creators around 150 million.
Once again Mycho Entertainment has upped the ante by joining Patreon as a way to utilize their vast resources at hand. For each goal they hit and pass, Mycho will distribute a new creation to its subscribers as a way to further involve their fans in the filmmaking process. From short films, to mini features, to monthly in-depth videos on the secrets of how to master micro-budget film making, every monthly contribution opens and unlocks another stage of the Mychoverse.
Joining Patreon gives Mycho a chance to tell some of their current side stories that have been patiently waiting in the wings or completely discarded altogether from previous films, due to restrictions. It gives Director MJ Dixon a chance to build upon existing characters and refine aspects of the road not yet traveled. It’s a clever way to generate more content and hopefully push the company over the threshold.

There are multiple perks you can still grab, including a $7 a month contribution that earns you a thank you credit on all Mycho short form content. Also, for a mere $50 a month contribution, you can grab an associate producer credit on all Mycho short form content as long as you are a patron. The real kicker here though, is the $100 a month contribution, which allows you to receive a co-producer on every film Mycho makes, including their yearly feature films.
They have seven goal limits set, with each one unlocking new content that Mycho will be releasing monthly/yearly. They have already successfully succeeded in passing their first two goals, meaning they will be producing four new short films per year. If they pass their third goal of collecting $300 a month from their supporters, Mycho will then release a new short film every six weeks. The remaining goals are chocked full of goodies as well.
Reaching their goal of collecting $650 a month, means Mycho will release their monthly Micro Budget Massacre Videos, where they will explain and expand on their shooting techniques and other aspects of micro budget filmmaking. If they manage to reach their goal of $900 a month, they will be doing three mini features (between 15-45 minutes) per year. And if they reach their goal of $1,500 a month, it will conclude in a six part web series, released once each year. Their final goal of collecting $2,300 a month is ideal, and will put them over the top, as they will move all of their feature length content to the Patreon platform and all patrons will get their feature films for free.
What stands out, is that for a small monthly contribution, you can actually become a producer of sorts and have your name become synonymous with Mycho. It’s not often that you get a chance to have your name credited on films for a small contribution like this. So seize the day, snatch up this rare chance, and head over to Patreon to help out this rising company while you still can.
Overall I think this is a phenomenal idea and opportunity, not only for Mycho, but for the fans as well. It’s a clever way for Mycho to get their name in lights, as well as any fans who are simply looking to make a name for themselves in the industry.
