Temrin brought up this idea in a thread - I am not sure if “marketing” is the ideal category for this, but maybe there is someone from Patreon actively moderating this site, so they can move this thread wherever it suits
The idea I would like to promote is to create a video “show” that does some (ideally weekly) “show and tell” of creators of various kinds: Visual artists, musicians, authors, craftspeople, tutorialists, whatsnots. We could start this concentrating on Patreon creators to gain some momentum both through the platform as such and because you can actually support (ideally “reach”) the artists interviewed.
Yes, I think there should be a personal touch to this. I wouldn’t want to watch a show that does plain advertising (“in your face big fonts screaming music loud PR for some channel”) but learn about the human beings behind what I can see/hear/touch/experience. I do realize that many artists prefer to let their art speak for them and “hide” behind what they do and that’s fine. It’s just that these artists - in my vision - don’t fit into a “show” like this.
That is not to say that creators have to be SEEN, but I think a good interview (I have some experience in doing technically adequate interviews) might be a good compromise.
What I personally could not provide is any kind of “artistic appreciation”, I just cannot tell art from rubbish, so if I’m going to start this thing - because someone has to start it, not talking about PROMOTING myself here - then I’d need some help from people who can give directions on what is “good enough” to get promoted in the first place. Which is, obviously, another subjective thing. But hey … we’re human beings, right? We need to cater for our prejudices …
What do you think? Are you in? Suggestions on whom to start with?
