Film and Animation community - Help us decide!Hello Deviants!Film and Animation community - Help us decide! by kingmancheng
TimberClipse and myself have been working on a new gallery structure for a while. We have agreed there is far too many categories in there and too often work gets submitted in the wrong place. It doesn't help as well that sometimes subject matter can cross a grey area and it could technically belong in a few sub-categories!
So what we would like to do is present to you all a couple of ideas we have had for a new structure. We want to streamline the process and make it easier for you to find a category. Especially as a lot of categories on there have roughly a further 8-10 extra sub-categories! So as it stands our film and animation gallery has more categories than I can count!
However it's all well and good what we think is good but at the end of the day this is for you guys so all your feedback is important to us. Please leave us a comment with which you prefer, and any other comments you have! We are looking forward to hearing what you have to say about o
Collaborative Deviations: A DiscussionCollaborative Deviations: A Discussion by danlev
A common request from deviants is to post collaborative deviations, where more than one deviant has worked to create the end product. In our recent Top Community Feature Requests and Our Responses journal, we briefly addressed why we haven’t yet undertaken collaborative deviations. However, we want to open a discussion around how collaborations could theoretically work, so that we can better understand the community’s desires for such a feature.
Simple vs. Complex
We've already put a fair amount of thought into collaborations, but don't want to make assumptions about around how deviants would use the feature to best serve their needs. From simple to complex, there are a number of ways we could implement collaborations and we’re interested to hear the community’s expectations.

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.
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!
