...why don't you do it yourself?
I'll put up a Paypal donate button on the sidebar.
As an independent multimedian, I would love to make some sort of living from this.
Cable modem, laptop, software, cameras, mini dv tapes all start to add up after a while. If I could just cover those expenses, this experiment would be worth it.
This is a no no/low pressure request.
If you like what you see, and you can afford it, please drop a few bucks in. If not, no problem. The only thing I ask is that you leave a comment or pass on a link to someone else.
To my family and friends, you can still look me in the eye. This isn't a guilt trip. But if holidays/birthdays/graduation rolls around and you are stumped for a gift idea, a donation would fill that need.
I'm also open to barter. If you have a project you need help with and it fits my skill set (video production, photography/photo manipulation, NLE, animation, writing...) drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with barter in the subject line.
Doing research for Chad's net journalism project, I drew inspiration from Joshua Ellis' project Dark Miracle. I first came across Joshua's story via boingboing. Joshua uses Paypal and micropatronage to fund his work. Amazing story, and an important step in the future of newmedia. Check out his site and this video. And if you can afford it, drop in a few bucks. A little bit here and there can make all the difference.
