On The Matter of Why You Should Subscribe to Sebastian Crane’s Patreon THE HELLFIRE CLUB

On The Matter of Why You Should Subscribe to Sebastian Crane’s Patreon THE HELLFIRE CLUB

Dear Reader,

Author, Actress, Playwright and Ghost Tour Guide Leanna Renee Hieber here, and I’m here to recommend a Patreon to you: The Hellfire Club, brought to you by Sebastian Crane.

I have known and worked with Sebastian for [redacted] years. In that time one particular thing has been made abundantly clear: He is a renaissance soul, immensely talented across many disciplines. I have been personal witness to the following feats of artistic prowess:

-Photographing a sweeping natural vista or a single downturned flower with the same attention to detail in the miniscule or the majestic, the triumphant or melancholy – all with whatever equipment might be on hand. The same goes for compelling profile/headshot pictures. Gallery-ready art with an expert eye.

-Crafted unique screenplays against impossible odds.

-Offered direct, honest and engaged Sensitivity Reads of multiple projects, giving insights from many different viewpoints and areas of experience so the text rings true and without harm.

-Drawing a Tarot read that is both hopeful and brutal. (One should have both if one is to gain any real advice from the cosmos.)

-Leading a ghost tour and striking the perfect balance of storytelling, true history and performative panache. (As a veteran tour guide of 18 years, I promise this is a subtle, difficult but critical skill to hone)

-Running an expertly crafted online RP and/or D&D campaign full of vision and fun.

-Perform Oscar Wilde and other classic texts expertly.

-Character art and illustrations that are dynamic, unique and perfectly evocative of characters/scenes.

-Played melancholy piano that brings out the ghosts in the room.

-Powerful writing across different forms, styles and media.

-Curating a specific, distinct style in fashion, tone and aesthetics that evokes ages past in a dark academic nostalgia with a healthy dose of witchcraft and cautionary tales.

-Finding the wondrous and the important in key historical and fantastical texts.

In all these things, eye and spirit are key. Sebastian’s eye is ever-keen and his spirit is distinct. Inimitable. With all renaissance souls comes the difficulty; where to focus the talent? To what end? A  historical tour? A demon summoning? A story told from fantastical facts? A photography exhibit? A monologue? Setting a scene? Historical perspectives of marginalized identity told in hopes of reclamation and celebration? 

All of the above, possibly; the beauty of a platform like Patreon. In taking a tour of Sebastian’s talents through the years, another thing that’s been made abundantly clear is that I’d never want to limit him to just one creative expression. And I wouldn’t expect all of these at once; it’s best to let him decide which facet leads when. He’ll be an expert tour guide through his art as well as collective, mutual interests. A consummate host through dark and fascinating waters.

So come, pull up a chair. Make yourself an exquisite drink (he has expert recipes). Witness a corner of the world where magic is dynamic, aesthetic and real and history is alive. Make a pledge and support at one of his tiers. I have. Now,l et’s join in, lift a glass, and celebrate the launch of a place you’ll love to haunt.

PLUS, I'll be joining Sebastian for an upcoming launch party on Feb 21st! Don't miss it!
