The Film & Animation gallery is split into the 6 main categories, each with their own subcategories e.g. 2D, 3D, Stop Motion, Stills etc. It is the main gallery for motion work and every style you can imagine can be found in the galleries!
Here is a selection of work from each main category!
- Commercials - any sort of videos that is for promotional purposes.
- Film - video work that has been shot on film.
- Multimation - videos that have been made with a mixture of different mediums.
- Trailers - short animations or films to introduced and promote feature works.
It was difficult for me to choose just a few works from each gallery because the range of work is so vast! I recommend that you check them all out yourself, there are some real gems in all of them!
You can submit works to any gallery on deviantART the moment you register with us! However the deviantART film community is a little different, you have to apply for the privileges to submit film and animation files. This is so we can maintain a certain level of production value to submitted work.FAQ #831: Why can't just anyone submit film?
You have to fill in an application form
and naturally we advice members to read through the deviantART film FAQ's in the help section to make sure you understand the basics e.g. copyright music and image, file size and duration limits, licences etc.
In your application we would ask you to link to current film or animation work you have from your portfolio site or public video site such as Vimeo or YouTube. We also ask that you link to any material you used that isn't yours, such as images or music so that we know all the material is either produced by you, or you obtained the proper permissions and licences to use any other material. If we feel that work isn't credited properly this can invalidate your application!
As far as work quality is concerned we're not looking for applicants who can work to the level of Disney or Studio Ghibli, we're looking for potential
! So don't be shy and feel free to send in your animatics and student work!
Sometimes you may not have to apply, you may simply receive an invite! And once you're part of the film community you can in turn invite other deviants to join as well.FAQ #836: How does the 'Film' invitation process work?
