About Fan Supported

About the Logo

The FAN SUPPORTED, CREATOR DISTRIBUTED logo was developed by Zombie Orpheus Entertainment for use by independent artists, filmmakers, and musicians. Here’s what it means:

  • Fan Supported: The work is supported primarily by its fans, rather than advertising, mass market sales, or third-party labels, networks, or studios.
  • Creator Distributed: Distribution of the work is managed by its creator, rather than a third party. This helps fans know that the value of their dollars is maximized, rather than being siphoned off by layers of third-parties. (The creator may still make the work available to wholesalers and other agents, but they retain primary distribution rights.)
  • The Design
    • The Circle: Fans and creators are interdependent. The more that a community supports the artist, the more works the artist is able to create for their community.
    • The Hand: Every person involved, whether as creator or fan supporter, is important. This is the opposite of top-down distribution—rather, the strength of the model emerges from the center.
