 '''THESE ARE MY IDEAS FOR HOW THIS MIGHT WORK - THEY NEED TO BE REVIEWED
 AND IMPROVED UPON'''

 This could work in two ways for users of the site. The basic idea being
 some kind of widget to show the amount of funds raised as in ChipIn, or a
 simple link to PayPal that is registered for each Member of the site that
 chooses to allow donations.

 ----

 == 1. DONATE AFTER VIEWING VIDEO ==

 A Member of the website may fill out their donations details (via Paypal
 or ChipIn or the system of our choosing) in their Personal Preferences
 profile.

 The video_view template will call this widget/button when the Author has
 entered this information.

 Another user of the site may view this page and click on the donate
 button. This will take them to the Paypal/ChipIn account of the author,
 where they may donate via that system.

 ----

 == 2. DONATE TO UPCOMING PRODUCTION ==

 This is related to the Productions content item feature listed here
 (bumped down by And to 0.5 milestone):
 http://plumi.org/ticket/20

 The basic idea here is to allow producers to fundraise for '''upcoming'''
 productions rather than collect donations for videos that have already
 been produced. This may be more motivating for some donors and ensure that
 producers can make new work, especially if it is something people want to
 see.

 A user could add a "Production" and then extend that object by linking to
 their account on ChipIn?? or something similar, which would then display
 their fundraising goal and how much further they have to reach it next to
 the description of what their production is about.

 ----

 I guess going with option 2 would be the easiest place to start, unless
 others have an idea of how this could work more effectively.
