Film & Animation!

Got a Film and Animation Daily Deviation suggestion?


Note me with your suggestion and if you wish a little comment on what you think about the piece!

I have a feature film/animation in development, and I want to be part of the Film In Progress articles! Where do I sign up?


Just take a quick look at this fav.me/d5n42wg to give you a little idea and send me a note to let me know you're interested. I'll ask you some questions loosely based on the ones you see in that journal!

I'm interested in submitting film/animation but I can't submit my work!


Take a look at this faq!

FAQ #831: Why can't just anyone submit film?

Hey! Since you animate, think you could help me out with my work?


Unfortunately I cannot work for free. I'm happy giving advice and words of wisdom based on my experiences, however I'm a freelance illustrator and animator, and I have to pay my bills. ;P

Hello good citizens of deviantARTland! Summer sure has gone quick, there just isn't enough of it. Hope you've all had a great summer, as it's start of term for you students out there I'm sure you'll be working away on some new animation projects now which we'll be eager to see in the near future! :eager:

Thanks as usual for all the suggestions you keep sending us, keep them coming and also keep up the good work!

Galleries Month

Introduction


Hi everyone! Welcome to the first of two articles about the film and animation gallery. 

Our gallery is the part of deviantART where everything comes to life! Our community is relatively small compared to some galleries but it is a thriving and exciting one. The range of talent we have includes super talented design students through to professional motion graphic wizards!

With independent film and animation works on the rise over the years, it’s a really exciting community and gallery to be a part of right now!

For gallery descriptions month TimberClipse and I will be talking about the gallery as a whole, the application process, how the gallery runs and even a little bit about ourselves!

   

Film & animation in deviantART in general 


Film & Animation is a gallery in itself on deviantART but it’s not the only gallery that has motion in. There are animations independent from this gallery, namely the Digital Art gallery, Traditional Art, Customization > Emoticons and Flash. So when you're sending us your Daily Deviation suggestions please remember to check the root category! ;)

Let before we look at the actual Film and Animation gallery let us take a look at those other galleries and celebrate the work that they have in motion!

Digital Art > Animation

Traditional Art > Animation


Animation Test - Tea Time by Miss-Belfry Vulture Pencil Test by ThreeDerpMoon Rain Gif by room4shoes

Customization > Emoticons


Kiss the World Cup Emoticon by Gomotes Stoked by Krissi001 Giant Faint by Web5teRShy kiss by Krissi001 I'm a bomb by BurgerBunny


Flash > Animations

As you can see there's a wealth of talent on deviantART in all the galleries, you never cease to impress us! The reason why there is animation work in other galleries is simply because we separate the work by different mediums. So if you have ever sent us Daily Deviation suggestions and we've redirected you to someone else, you now know why!

Nonetheless there is fantastic animation work in all these galleries so if you love the Flim & Animation gallery, do check out these other galleries as well!  

Film & Animation gallery overview


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! 

deviantART film application process

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?

For more information on the application process please check out the deviantART film section in our help page!

Hey everyone! Super quick update from me because I need to run around and sort out friends wedding things. I only finished baking for them at 00.30 AM this morning... :faint:
So yeah I'll be away this weekend helping out and attending a friends wedding. :)

Anyway couple of things, firstly I started a Graphic Designer and Multimedia Developer job full time this week so I'll be able to support my freelance work. :la:
I've only been there a couple of days but I'm enjoying it so far, the team are friendly and helpful, and I can see some fun challenges ahead!

In other news my animated music video to Light Through the Day is composed by Alexander Chapman Campbell as part of his album, Sketches of Light. It was produced by The Smalls and Decca Records/Universal music. Took a little while for release but it's finally here! Hope you all like it! Any likes, shares, tweets etc would be much appreciated. Most of all I hope you all like it! I got to speak to Alexander directly whilst working on this and he's such a nice guy! This song I animated has been on Wimbledon on the BBC, and his songs have been featured on TV and Classic FM Radio!

Do check out the rest of his work on his homepage



Of course I want to end this by thanking everyone I know, there has been so much happening recently which is largely positive stuff. Everyone's been giving me support and keeping me sane, you're all awesome! :heart:


My deviantART Story

Thu Aug 7, 2014, 1:24 AM
I was introduced to deviantART by a friend who is no longer active on here. I joined 10 years ago and it's been an amazing journey so far. I started off just posting mostly animé/game inspired drawings and fan art to get feedback from the community. It wasn't until many years of lurking that I finally started to open out and post in the forums. Over time I got to know more deviants and I made some great friends as a result. The only other site I was a real part of was legendofzelda.com, where I also made some great friends over the years!

Zelda by TaoPaint

deviantART has grown so much over the years and the artists in every gallery on here is absolutely amazing. Initially it was more about the fan art and game art that I was interested in, and over time as I learnt more as a student and started seeing more of the world, my appreciation for every form of art grew with it. In fact I touch on many areas of art and design, did you guys know I did origami as well? ;)

As I began to be very forum active I was eventually asked to join the volunteer team by Tachy-on , and I still remember Xerces, FixMeKnowdeshrubber  and sine-out putting out a good word for me (unbeknownst to me at the time). I never even thought about applying to be a volunteer but I've also never regretted saying yes. I still remember falling back into my chair at the time! At the time I handled chat and forums, but nowadays you all know me as one of the Film and Animation gallery team members with my hardworking and talented friend TimberClipse

Make a wish dandelion glass dome ring by Xerces

I never even think to count the years I've been here, it wasn't until deviantART's birthday today that I really thought about it and I thought 'Gosh...10 years...really?'. I've made awesome friends in the years I've been here, from both the volunteer team and all the art communities. If I'm still here in another 10 years, make sure I don't forget to take my medication! :shakecane: - quickdraw by quickdraw

Here's to many more years of growth and success deviantART, thank you deviants, thank you friends, you're all amazing! :ahoy:

Hey there! I'm Kingman Cheng and I'm a BBC (British Born Chinese) illustrator and animator, who is also skilled in UI and website design.

My work is inspired by practically anything I've seen, heard or experienced in my life. To name just a few: old tales, childhood memories, history, culture, and even just conversations I've had.

I can work in a wide variety of styles because I believe in being adaptive and designing to fit the briefs I work to. However I have to say my work generally isn't 'clean', and I love textures, tone and exciting composition!

2012 - Winner of the Piccadilly Circus Screen Challenge.
2012/2013 - Music video shortlisted for bang! Short Film Festival.
2012 - Music video wins Best Music in the Braine Hownd Awards.
2013 - 'Howl's Moving Castle' pixel animation selected for a Daily Deviation award at DeviantART.
2013 - Winner of Rachel Bright's Love Monster & The Perfect Book Trailer Competition
2014 - Official music video for Through the Fields selected for a Daily Deviation award at DeviantART.

If you would like to contact me about my work or would just like a bit of a chat please don't hestitate to contact me!
