    Sam Haveson, is Patreon’s Product Manager in charge of the Community product at Patreon. We cover Patreon’s increasing investment in co-building community features with creators. Some of the features we talk about in the episode aren’t quite ready for more creators to try out just yet. But Patreon will be announcing more about those opportunities in the near future.
    This is the final episode of Backstage with Patreon!
    This is the end of my time at Patreon leading the Creator Success team but hopefully not the end of getting to work with creators and telling company stories. You can find me on Twitter @BrianPodcasting, LinkedIn under brikell, and email at brian.keller@gmail.com

    Making Patreon your creative business hub | Noclip | #22

    Danny O’Dwyer is the founder of Noclip, which makes video game documentaries available for everyone to watch, funded by a community of members on Patreon. In 2016, Danny pivoted from a career in gaming journalism to making his own documentaries, free from the influence of advertising and sponsored content. Noclip has gone on to build a team and release dozens of documentaries on YouTube, with Patreon members getting additional bonus content and involvement in the production process.
    Noclip has been one of the creators with early access to new Patreon features allowing them to bring more of their audience into membership without needing to pledge on a paid tier. Danny has been experimenting with what member-only content to share with these free members, and having compelling reasons to upgrade.
