** Completely re-imagine this page. Make use of current search functionality and make it the perfect discovery tool. We can remove the list of documentaries at the top.
DETAILS FOR EVERY PAGE:
The sidebar will be consistent throughout the site on the right hand side and made up of 'cards'. On different pages we might show different sidebar elements i.e. the most relevant.
Sidebar 'cards' that need to be designed are:
* Author - Show photo of author, name, link to profile + Google+ page.
* Related - Cards needed for both related videos and articles
* Social - Facebook + Twitter boxes
* Social - Share this article
* Social - Giving user ability to share on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Reddit etc
* Related discussions / forum card
* Activity - could be cleaned up.
MONETIZATION / ADS
* Donate button - A recurring element throughout the site should be a donate button in a sidebar. With the text: "100% of your donation will go towards improving DocumentaryTube. Spread the Knowledge"
* Sponsored content - http://prntscr.com/6ypw03 - to be under every video.
* Possible Amazon, Google Play store etc integration in design i.e. Buy this documentary or similar documentaries would be very interesting.
* We wish to add ability for user to continue playing the video and browse the rest of the website. We need a button that allows video to be minimized / dragged into the bottom right corner and then user can maximise if they wish. Similar to YouTube.
