Why interacting is important is pretty simple- it helps more people see Reynard City and what we’re doing. Of course there’s a bit more to it than that, so we produced a video and we’ll be going over it a bit more in this blog!
1. Why interacting is important- Special guest stars
So we’ve had people ask us “What about a video with this Youtube person?” or “Have you tried ____?”
Often the answer is “Yes I have” and will probably try again.
The simple answer is you’re more likely to get people come on board if you get more subscribers on Youtube or the project gets bigger. Don’t get me wrong, we have already had some people guest appear on our videos and ask questions that I wouldn’t have thought we would get (Shoutout to the likes of Vaun Earl Norman, the team behind X-Men the animated series, Professor Elemental, Lenore Zann and Roger Craig Smith)
While we’re here a few other quick videos from people I like
2. Why interacting is important- Fan art and contributions
On Friday we’ll be doing our usual Fanart Friday. Every time we get a bit of artwork from you, it helps us spread the word and get a few more people learning about us. Equally, we want to do our bit to direct people to you and your pages.
Our theme this month is “Love” , if you need some inspiration check out previous months in the playlist. You can send it via firstname.lastname@example.org or tag Reynardcity in Instagram or Deviantart (Any questions use the email or our contact form).
Equally, even if you’re not an artist OCs, sharing links to videos, leaving comments etc all help!
3. Why interacting is important- Funding
Very simply put funding allows us to do a lot more- For example regular Patreon donations have made it easier to give our artists regular funds, while Ko-Fi and Deviantart premium folders have given us more options for people who want to get our comics and provide further support.
Of course sometimes you get people say “I can’t do this right now because…” and I understand that. What I will say is if we get enough people donating $1 a month or even getting a one off purchase of a comic collection it will make a massive difference and allow us to do a lot more and support a lot more people.
4. Why interacting is important- Future projects
I sometimes get messages from people saying “What about an animated series?” or “How about this idea or that idea?”
The truth is there are lots of things that I want to do. One of my aims for this year is to do another cosplay (more info in this blog).
We are also doing an upcoming villain Q and A with Hayley Evenett, Hollie Harrington-Ball, AJ Deane and happy to say we’re bringing in Simon Michael-Morgan as the voice of Mega Fox. With this video, we will have Perfect Platinum, Mega Fox, El Paso Grande and Caramel Girl available for questions, so please use the form or email email@example.com with questions.
In order to keep things simple, I’ve got comic links in one page here so that you can look and find out more. Remember- liking and subscribing the Youtube is free, while supporting via our shop etc can be as little as $1 a month.
While we have talked about why interacting is important, it is also vital to remember we have had a lot of people support us over the years and I am so grateful to everyone. This is not just one person, this is a real team effort, which is why we made the special thanks playlist to properly thank the people who make this happen.
To everyone who has worked on this- thank you so much!
