THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW & AGREE BEFORE JOINING
Each production takes time and a lot of money to create.
You already know it’s a niche market - so by nature, it would cost a little bit more than paying for mainstream streaming services.
But you also know that creators are not making profit out of this kind of project.
So, you decide to support us all the way -
because you know, in return, you can watch something specific that you like, and can’t find it anywhere else.
This is not an online store.
This is a monthly / membership / subscription.
We don't sell individual clip nor video.
We work within the laws in the US.
and just in case..
Sudden change of a member’s behavior may be viewed as suspicious. For example : long time members who should have known basic routine & procedure that (member themselves) been practicing every month, suddenly becomes forgetful, asking basic questions (that they should have known already) or become enrage on nonissue - we will assume that member’s account has been hacked. We may either notify PATREON or block member’s account.
Spending money on membership withoutreadingtier description or info on“about” page or info on“website” or welcome notes received when first joined - will be viewed as suspicious. No human adult today would spend money via credit card without a careful study on what they are paying for.
Asking for refund - will be viewed as a scam.
LENGTH OF VIDEO According to our research on member’s viewing behavior, we recently limit the length of each new video at 10 minutes. The 10 minute length seems to be viewer’s best watch time for one video sequence - that viewer can catch details, absorb mood and aesthetic. However, since we’re creating a very niche genre that dwells on repeated and prolonged actions (of bitting flesh), sometimes the length can easily exceed or go below 10 minute limitation. In some rare occasion, there will be a released version that exceeds 15 or 20 minutes if we feel something special about it personally.
NUMBERS OF VIDEOS To get the best results possible, numbers of new releases should be flexible. Advance tier normally - but not necessarily gets two new videos a month while art patron tier gets three or four.
RE-EDITED VERSION We’re in the age of digital steaming where files are kept in the cloud storage. We have in-house post production staff working flexibly and interchangeably on projects. An advantage for both consumers and creators that the old days could not provide. We can fix things after it was released. We think “the re-editing” is important in our kind of niche genre. To take out a few frames, add a few more, subtlety change colors or slow down certain part of bite action can have a positive impact on your viewing pleasure.
THERE’S NO PLAYBACK ISSUE If you experience playback issue, it will certainly be problem from your device. Please seek help from technician where you live. Our .mov files are standard file that playable on modern devices. In case you play online,you’re watching from google drive with the same technology as youtube. So, there should not be any problem.All files are unlocked before release to members (and tested over different devices).
WHEN YOU INTERACT WITH PATREON, YOU’ RE DEALING WITH AN AI, NOT A HUMAN PERSON. ANY ACTIVITY WITH PATREON WILL ONLY BE ON PACIFIC TIME - MEANING TIME ZONE IN CALIFORNIA.
When PATREON charges you for monthly subscription,
they will do it after the first minute of the first of the month.
Say - If you join 30 seconds before midnight of May 1st (Pacific time), PATREON will charge you for April subscription, and will charge you again after midnight for May subscription.
If you have a declined payment, and re-enter subscription 30 seconds before midnight of May 1st (Pacific time), PATREON will charge you for old debt from declined payment, and will charge you again after midnight for May subscription.
SO. AVOID DOING THESE THINGS BETWEEN THE LAST MINUTES OF THE MONTH.
WHEN YOU INTERACT WITH US (KAIJU-FICTION), YOU PERSONALLY DEAL WITH A REAL HUMAN.
We (KAIJU-FICTION) based in SE Asia. So, midnight in California is 03.00 PM on our local time.
04.00 AM (April 18) in South Korea is 02.00 AM (April 18) on our local time.
08.00 PM (April 17) in London is 02.00 AM (April 18) on our local time.
09.00 PM (April 17) in Poland is 02.00 AM (April 18) on our local time.
02.00 PM (April 17) in Chicago is 02.00 AM (April 18) on our local time.
03.00 PM (April 17) in Quebec, Canada is 02.00 AM (April 18) on our local time.
Our online coordinator (a person who communicate with you on our KAIJU-FICTION’s PATREON) also works nightshift (local time) since most of our subscribers are from Europe and north America. Keep in mind that people who work nightshift can be weird sometimes.
The word “vampire” used here as a mean of communication, something that search engine algorithm can understand - since we have no other mainstream word to describe it. - “Bloodsucking entity” is what it is - but would be too long to communicate online. Besides, search engine algorithm will not give good result for the word “blood sucking entity” (we tried). Then again by using the word “vampire” poses different problems as in popular culture, people have fixed idea about (western) mainstream vampire, and see no other alternative. However, our "blood sucking entity" or vampire, based on traditional SE Asian cultures, from both archipelago and mainland.
SPECIFIC SUB-GENRE OF VAMPIRE SEQUENCE
When say “specific sub-genre of vampire film and sequence”, we refer to a kind of fetishism that we consider an art form - with particular characteristics ; (1) long and clearly visible bite scene (2) very slow action - could be either realtime or slower (3) emphasis on facial expression, either with emotions or hypnotic (4) impression of real world situation (5) blood drips according to laws of physics (6) female / female relationships / situation. --- Fangs and bite on different parts of the body may be included spontaneously when actresses feel like to. (7) actresses consider their works as a recorded of a live performance.
THINGS WE DISLIKE, AND WILL NEVER DO (under any circumstances) ; (1) stake through the heart (2) burn in sunlight (3) bats and other animal transformation (4) politics among vampires (5) vampire hunter (6) magic (7) specific western vampire lore that tends to disregard other blood sucking entities from different culture.
WHAT WE OFFER ON PATREON - NOT A SHORT FILM BUT A VISUAL SEQUENCE :
A NICHE MARKET : This sub-genre is a niche market, a very specific kind of fetishism. If a person doesn’t get it, should really stay away from it. We do not covert others nor advertise our low profile realm of imagination. As a result, our productions will be a little bit more expensive than mainstream entertainment.
We are using PATREON’s CHARGE UP FRONT payment methods - meaning - when you join our PATREON for the first time, you will be immediately charged - and get benefits (videos) for that particular month. Then, you will be charged again on the 1st of each month.
YOU JOIN ON OCTOBER 28 -
YOU WILL BE IMMEDIATELY CHARGED THE MOMENT YOU ARRIVE.
YOU GET BENEFITS (VIDEOS) FOR OCTOBER
THEN ON NOVEMBER 1ST,
PATREON WILL CHARGE YOU AGAIN FOR NOVEMBER STUFF.
YOU GET BENEFITS (VIDEOS) FOR NOVEMBER
BILLING CIRCLE IS ON THE 1ST OF EACH MONTH - PACIFIC TIME ONLY
FOR EXAMPLE : YOU THINK JOIN ON JULY 1ST YOUR LOCAL TIMEBUT IT’S STILL JUNE 30 IN CALIFORNIA. PATREON WILL CHARGE YOU FOR JUNE MEMBERSHIP AND WILL CHANGE YOU AGAIN WHEN IT’S JULY 1ST IN CALIFORNIA FOR JULY MEMBERSHIP.
As stated earlier in INFO / TERMS section, new monthly video(s) will always be released on the 3rd of the month even though PATREON charges you monthly membership fee on the 1st of the month. The reason - During the first through the second of the month (while PATREON is charging you and all members around the world at the same time), we (Kaiju-Fiction) will not have access to recent data, especially an update on member's information. So, we will not know who's still a member, who's already gone or who's not paying us for renewing membership. Not until late on the second day or the third day of the month that we do have some idea - that we can proceed with updating your playlist.
Billing circle is on the first of each month (Pacific Time - not your local time).
Benefits will be released to you on the third of the month.
Benefits will always - only be placed on your PLAYLIST.
Although you join us on the first of the month, benefits will be delivered on the third.
BENEFITS - WHAT YOU GET
BENEFITS refers to "NEW MONTHLY RELEASED VIDEOS" and access to PLAYLIST.
For STANDARD TIER member, BENEFITS refers to access to basic PLAYLIST and eligibility to request a video from standard list on the second month of membership.
Each member will get a PLAYLIST along with selection list (accordingly to subscription / membership tier) when first join us on PATREON - It will be sent to your inbox messages on PATREON.
REMEMBER, we live in different part of the world with different timezone, sometimes any respond can be slow (in your mind).
When you become inactive (cancellation / declined payment / blocked), your PLAYLIST will be gone.
REQUESTING PREVIOUS VIDEO, for advance & art patron members will be considered an extra part of benefits, a bonus not main benefits. The main benefits will be new monthly released videos.
EDITING YOUR MEMBERSHIP (upgrade / downgrade) details HERE - Remember, we're in "monthly charge upfront" category.
DECLINED PAYMENT “Declined payment” is an undesirable situation for creator. It happens when PATREON can not successfully receive payment from you (for whatever reason). It’s the number we see but don’t get the money on time. A large amount of “declined payment” accumulated from many members in a month can throw new production in the red for months to come. It directly effects quality and livelihood of production crew (low ranking production crew) because we pay them with PATREON money. —————-- When you have a “declined payment” on your account status - and did not terminate your membership properly, from a perspective of PATREON's bot - you still owe PATREON money. So, when you’re back to do business with us, PATREON will still charge you the amount of “declined payment” that you have earlier on your account.
(EXAMPLE) Member-X has a $30 USD “declined payment” on his account. Member-X gone for many months or even a few hours - Later, Member-X is back to join our PATREON for $10 USD membership tier. PATREON will still be charging Member-X for $30 USD (for $10 USD tier). —————--
CAN’T OPEN HYPERLINKS ON PDF PLAYLIST VIA GOOGLE DRIVE PDF PREVIEW
ALTHOUGH NOTHING WRONG WITH OUR PDF PLAYLIST FILES
You may experience that you can’t open hyperlinks on on PDF playlist via Google Drive. We believe the problem is google itself - that function to open hyperlinks on the PDF preview (via Google Drive) was disable by Google.
(between November 18 - 20, 2023) We tested different files, from different accounts and across devices, the result mostly came out the same - hyperlinks are no longer clickable. Although in some random moment, the function was usable but we can’t trust anything random. Therefore...
We suggest you download the PDF playlist file to desktop / your device.
We also recommend that you download the video to your desktop / your device, instead of watching it via Google Drive.
You can delete your downloaded video file afterward, and download it again whenever you want to re-watch as long as you still have your PDF playlist files and hyperlinks.
To download PDF / video from Google Drive, please explore the menu in front of your screen. Each device displays differently.
In case you already have some kind of PDF reader on your mobile device, you’re fine. Use the PDF reader you already have on your device (instead of Google Drive PDF Preview)
Most desktop usually (already) have a PDF preview tool installed when you buy your computer.
NOT RECOMMEND BUT IT CAN WORK
Use third party app, especially one that recommend by Google (explore menu on your device to see where it is). We never test this. So, we can’t suggest this option.
IS THERE OTHER ALTERNATIVES TO DISTRIBUTE PLAYLIST?
We explore other alternatives but they are more expensive and complicate for end users. We would rather spend money on video productions instead of building an app.
THE BEST PRACTICE, FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE AND SAFETY,
download both PDF playlist and videos - watch them on your device - delete them afterward to save your hard-disk space - download them again whenever you want.
PDF OPEN PDF HYPERLINKS
PDF file is one of the most basic piece of technology. If it can be opened in one machine, it can be opened in all machines, and will look the same, including hyperlinks, attached files, images. If you can open hyperlinks on one PDF file, you will certainly be able to open it on other PDF files. There’s no supernatural element, no higher technical expertise, no conspiracy theory involved. If your device can not do any of these functions properly, then is (most likely) your device malfunction in some way. Or you’re doing it wrong somehow. Beyond that would be fictional. The best solution (if you’re unable to figure it out by yourself) is to consult a knowledgeable person near you.
THE BEST ALTERNATIVE IS GOOGLE SEARCH IT’S QUICKER THAN WAITING FOR ANSWER FROM OUR ONLINE COORDINATOR
SAMPLE IN THREE PHOTOS BELOW CAN'T OPEN HYPERLINKS ON PDF CAN'T OPEN VIDEO ON GOOGLE DRIVE EVIL SPIRIT IN YOUR DEVICE
We’re not sitting next to you. We can help you with basic technical issues that happened to many people across platform. We can fix broken files that actually broken. However, in some strange case that doesn’t make any technical sense and only happens to you, we really don’t know what to do for you. Go to Google first.
