Manual Cinema is a for profit LLC. Becoming a non-profit takes an incredible amount of administrative time and effort, and we made a conscious decision early on to stay for profit. This allows us to devote more time to making puppets, writing screenplays, and designing sounds. Nonetheless, making live performance work is incredibly expensive. In addition to for-hire work, your contribution will go a long way towards helping us make the performance work that we want to make in the coming years.

Our fiscal sponsor, Fractured Atlas, is a 501(c)3 organization that helps artists like us raise money from charitable sources without becoming a non-profit ourselves. All contributions to Manual Cinema through Fractured Atlas will be 100% tax deductible and will go directly to Manual Cinema. Thanks for your contribution!
