You can clone with
DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE = 'storages.backends.s3boto.S3BotoStorage'
STATICFILES_STORAGE = 'path.to.storage.S3StaticStorage'
THUMBNAIL_DEFAULT_STORAGE = 'storages.backends.s3boto.S3BotoStorage'
AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID = 'YOUR KEY'
AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY = 'YOUR KEY'
AWS_STORAGE_BUCKET_NAME = 'media.YOURSITE.com'
AWS_STATIC_BUCKET_NAME = 'static.YOURSITE.com'
AWS_S3_CUSTOM_DOMAIN = AWS_STORAGE_BUCKET_NAME
AWS_STATIC_CUSTOM_DOMAIN = AWS_STATIC_BUCKET_NAME
STATIC_URL = 'http://%s/' % AWS_STATIC_BUCKET_NAME
MEDIA_URL = 'http://%s/' % AWS_STORAGE_BUCKET_NAME
from django.conf import settings

"S3 storage backend that sets the static bucket."

Thanks, Dude! This was handy. I extended it to use different locations (/static/ and /media/), instead of domains, but same concept and this helped...
No prob - glad it helped you out!
Unless Im mistaken this just uses two buckets, not mapping onto the one which IMHO is more desirable.
@madteckhead yep you're right. The purpose of this gist was to allow two separate buckets for media and static. If you only set DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE it will do the behavior you mention by default.
Is there a good way to migrate existing media to S3—something similar to ./manage collectstatic?
