Hello. First I'd like to thank you for checking out this page. As the title implies, I am looking to create a company of my own. I have always had various ideas that I'd love to see recreated into various forms of multimedia, be that books, games, movies, etc. This company will allow me to do exactly that. I aim to create to the best of my ability, an excellent workspace that facilitates good relationships between team members and that can produce content to the level at which I envision. However, all great plans must start somewhere and as with all things in this world, money is needed to do so.
Currently, the minimum target is $3,500.00. This won't allow me to hire others to work alongside me but it will enable me to begin creating any games that I have in mind. I have already spoken to various interested parties (potential team members) and based on the agreed salaries/rates, the cost to complete the first game (A Visual Novel based one) would lie anywhere from $15,000.00 (assuming I agree to share the game's potential revenue with them) to $50,000.00 (by paying them directly for their work). As you can no doubt tell, both numbers are far from the $3,500.00 mentioned earlier, but that is where my initial plan comes into play.
If I receive the funding of $3,500.00, I will start things off on my own. I will buy the tools needed and use the leftovers to get the writer on board to complete the Prologue of the game. This will serve as the Demo for the full release but will also allow potential supporters to try out the game and determine whether it is something they would like to support or not. While this is occurring, I will also finish working on the books I am currently writing and self-publish them to Kindle (Amazon). Finally, I will use the tools (PC) I bought to do odd jobs on the side to bring in extra revenue. All in all, I suspect it will take at least a few months to reach the next minimum goal of $15,000 but it is a start. Of course, I can also do streams and videos to add to the potential income.
If I receive more funding than I could ever dream of (I.e. - $100,000+), it would enable me to skip a lot of the aforementioned plans and get straight to creating. I already have the team(s) on standby merely waiting for the funding so it wouldn't be much of a hassle to gather professionals to assist me in creating the games I have in mind. It would also help me branch into other areas of interest, such as; possible music production (game soundtracks and full album releases), book publishing, and more.
All in all, if I become successful in any of these plans, I would look to assist others like me. The cold truth of the world is that it is difficult to get funding to start any type of business nowadays without contacts. Having tried for over a year, I know just how hard it can be to convince even friends and family that you're business prospects are worthwhile. As such, I would really like to be in a position to help others out there who are also looking to start a business of any kind and that would be my way of giving back to the community that helped me apart from all the various content that I would be making of course.
Either way, it all starts here. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at:
