That Video Mag is a city-focused video magazine for local culture, news, entertainment powered by local video creators. We need your help to help viewers understand what makes your community an exciting place to work, live, and play. If you're struggling to earn a living as a freelance video journalist, filmmaker, and musician, you can make more money from publishing and sharing non-fiction, documentary, journalistic, and live performance videos on That Video Mag than releasing them on free ad-supported models.
What makes us different?
We provide creators with the highest revenue sharing, discoverability, and monetization through distribution earning $.75 monthly recurring revenue for every new paid subscriber for the member's life. Videos are guaranteed to reach between 100K and 1 million people.
How much money can I make?
We pay creators $500-$2,500 for original videos produced exclusively for TVM. Creators who become affiliates and share Featured (red badge) and Sponsored (blue badge) videos earn $.75 in monthly recurring revenue every time a new member subscribes to a paid plan for the member's life or a one-time payment of $.75 when a member subscribes to a free plan.
Do I still own the video?
We're only interested in original videos produced exclusively for our platform. If it already exists, we're probably not interested. Because we're investing in production, we retain full ownership.
I'm not a filmmaker; can I still earn cash?
Sure! Members who share Featured (red badge) or Sponsored (blue badge) videos will earn $.75 in monthly recurring revenue every time a new member subscribes to a paid plan for the member's life or a $.75 one-time payment when a member subscribes to a free plan.
