YouTube Screening Room – New short films

July 5, 2008

YouTube released their Screening Room two weeks ago, and have just released a new batch of short films.

The Screening Room is an excellent platform to get your Antics generated short a massive audience. The standard of featured videos so far has been very high, so if you manage to get featured then that is a high accolade in itself!

Even if you don’t have anything to submit just yet, the quality of films on there is astounding. It’s a great place to find inspiration and ideas.

This is what YouTube have to say about their launch of the Screening Room:

The YouTube Screening Room is a platform for top films from around the world to find the audiences they deserve.

Every other Friday, you’ll find four new films featured in the YouTube Screening Room.

These films always appear with the permission and involvement of the filmmakers, so be sure to rate, share and leave comments. This is your chance to not only watch great films from all corners of the globe, but also to converse with the filmmakers behind them.

While the majority of these films have played at international film festivals, occasionally you’ll find films that have never before screened for wide audiences.

All films playing in the YouTube Screening Room are displayed within our High Quality player to give you the best viewing experience possible.

Be a part of a new generation of filmmaking and distribution and help us connect films and audiences in the world’s largest theater!

Grab the audience your Antics animation deserves

May 21, 2008

Every movie needs an audience. Your Antics work deserves to be seen. So how can you make it available to the largest audience possible?

First off, make sure you upload it to the many user generated video sites out there. YouTube is a given, but there’s also and many others. Flickr even supports video now.

Then make sure you post a link in the Showcase area of the Antics forum. This area is a dedicated platform for the work of all Antics users. Posting here will get your work a larger audience, but crucially it will also get you feedback from a qualified and experienced community. So even if it’s only a work in progress, post it up and you’ll be sure to get some tips and tricks that will help you.

In fact, if you’re looking for some inspiration for your next project then the Showcase area is great for that too. You can see techniques that other Antics users have adopted that really work wonders.

Finally, don’t forget that one of the advantages of working in Antics is that you don’t suffer from copyright issues. The work you create in Antics using Antics content is yours to distribute as you see fit.

So don’t be shy! If your work catches our eye then we’ll showcase it on this blog too!
