A new site is helping video bloggers (vloggers) get funding for their projects. Below is a the description from the site, and here's a writeup by DVGuru on the initiative: "Have Money Will Vlog."
Traditional artists can apply for grants to make their work. Have Money Will Vlog supports videobloggers trying to do the amazing. The power of the community can fund projects on a regular basis. You easily spend $10 or more everytime you go out to see a movie…so consider donating $10 a month to a videoblog project. If we have 100 people that give $10 a month, that’s $1000. Let’s energize creators.
