I’m not sure how I feel about this, but I’ve created a Paypal donation button to allow people to donate to me if they would like to. I’ve resisted doing it for a long time, but I figure it can’t hurt.
Basically, I make very very little money right now, and every video I make takes three to six hours and I make maybe a pound off each of them in the long run. At this rate, I need to find some kind of paying work which would ultimately make it difficult for me to keep making videos as a lot of my spare time is used trying to find acting work, trying to finish my university work, etc etc.
I’m thinking I’ll probably do something to honor those who donate, especially those who donate substantial amounts. Maybe I’ll send them little thank-you notes with doodles or something. Or maybe one of my origami things from my videos.
I doubt I’ll actually get much money this way (if any), and certainly not the fifty-sixty quid a video I’d need to justify not taking the first job that comes along. I might as well try, though, and I might get some trickle funding out of it. If I don’t, at least I tried.
And without further ado, here’s the button:
