UPDATE: Well, it seems that the site is currently under a Beta test with no word when you or I can participate. But hopefully soon we'll find out sooner or later. Also all payments are sent to your Amazon payments account so at this time you must be a U.S. Citizen with a Amazon membership.
For those, like myself, searching for a way to fund your next project should check out Kickstarter; a site for those seeking funding. At this point it's free to sign up and you have 25 days or so to raise the funding with the amount that you seek. If that goal is not met no one donates money and you're back to square one.
Nothing is expected in return for the donations made, however some artists are giving away bonus items for certain donated dollar amounts. For example if someone donates fifty dollars or more on a someone's film project then the filmmaker would send that person a finished DVD of the film for free as a way to say thanks.
I haven't tried it yet, but may do so in the next few days to raise completion money for my short film/music vid project.
Go here for the full details.
