HMWV is a volunteer steering group that promotes Videobloggers to the general public toward financial support. Here's a step-by-step description of our evolving process.

If you want us to help you promote your project to get money, see below.

We usually are able to help raise between $2-3000 for projects we really love.


Have Money Will Vlog considers a videoblogging project for promotion when a group member advocates it to the HMWV email list. Choose and contact an advocate from the list below, and get in touch as the advocate suggests. If that person falls in love with your idea, he or she will help craft your proposal and bring it to the group. 'Crafting' means shaping proposals in ways more likely to succeed within our open source community.


To apply for an advocate, simply...

1. Read our blurbs below and choose someone to approach

2. Make first contact by sending the person what their blurb asks for

3. If the advocate takes you on, be ready to answer some tough questions and adjust your proposal a bit.


If it doesn't work out, you can always change your proposal and try again, or approach a different member of the group. Above all, don't lose heart. If your work doesn't mesh perfectly with HMWV, we recommend Fundable or our PledgeDrive Wordpress plugin. Using these tools, anybody can raise funds anywhere and we're happy to help you do that. Go for it. The PledgeDrive plugin will be ready for use on other sites the end of Sept 2006. Keep checking back for updates.


A wee bit of 'ADVICE': Check out the projects we've successfully promoted so far.

We promote projects we believe in to potential donors. Yeah, donors. There are no direct returns on investments in Have Money Will Vlog. Supporters receive a priceless, permanent place of honor in the hearts and lives of a generation of emerging mediamakers.


HMWV is in essence an imprimatur, a new iteration of 'Producer'. Each one of us is a passionate creator. Our efforts here focus on promoting great content. We apply all the juice at our collective disposal - Google, reputational and otherwise - to assure each project's succeess. Have Money Will Vlog projects are seen by great eyes. We connect creators with audiences that will gleefully pay to see and be part of the process of making compelling video.


What do we get out of doing this? It's cool to meet tons of creative geniuses, like you. We love being pioneers. We get gallons of juice from helping finance fantastic projects. No one in this group is paid for doing this; we just love it. Check out our active advocates for individual motivations.


We usually stray away from commercial projects that will get made with or without our help (but not necessarily); we often smile at people who just want a new HD camera (but we never count it out); we love projects in which the creator sacrifices something to make the project happen (but it isn't a requirement); we love promoting creators who already have a small network who can donate (but we love unknowns as well); we love projects that change how we see the world (no exceptions here).


Questions? Choose someone and email them.
