Manual Cinema's Patreon

We're thrilled to announce that we've launched our very own Patreon page! We want to continue making all imaginative art you know and love in a sustainable fashion. That’s where Patreon comes in. With regular monthly support from our patrons, we’ll have more freedom to develop the original work we’re passionate about; the projects that truly make us Manual Cinema.

By becoming a patron you'll get: behind-the-scenes access to our process, sneak peeks at upcoming projects, virtual studio visits, a puppet and sound of the month, and you’ll even be able to join special Q+A’s with us, the Artistic Directors. All of these benefits are 🚨EXCLUSIVE🚨 to Patreon supporters!
