Hi there. I need to ask the staff directly. I have not seen my questions asked as of yet. Maybe I missed it. If I did I apologize, but I will go ahead and ask a few questions of my own.
So, the issue that everyone is obviously most afraid of,
With the 50/ 50 partnership being said
1.Is this ratio negotiable?
2. In the event that my submission is chosen, but I decide later down the line that I want to move on from Tapas for any reason, can the partnership be ended? Like for example, the program didn't meet my expectations or hypothetically found something better.
3.What is the monthly pay like? Honestly, I ask mainly because I currently have a job, and the amount of sleepless nights I already spend on my comic does not suffice with my day job. So, I'm asking the rate so that I know I can still survive and pay bills. I'm aware and excited to find more ways to make money through this of course and even have tons of deals, but is the pay rate in itself viable?
4. Lastly, can I decide later to partner with other artists in the same season, just to help and what would that mean for pay rate? Would we share like one person? Or are we both paid equally?
These are just questions that I think would help everyone understand the program better.
Despite the fear any artist has with sharing their rights to basically their souls. I am very interested in this program and and I want to be able to trust Tapas. I truly believe in my stories and my art.
So, I'm very eager to hear the Staffs reply.
