Promote your stuff!

kid-megaphone

When I first conceived of Animation Insider I pictured it as a site for animators by animators.  Being a professional animator or artist is hard. It takes a lot of networking skills and dedication. It also takes promotion. Many of the people I know do their own thing on the side, be it comics, short films, jewelry, paintings, tutorials and teaching, writing, to name a few.  A few I know even bake!

That said, we’re starting a new feature on Animation Insider.com whereby you can promote your events, films reel, or art here and be seen thousands of artists, development executives and animators daily. You can even sell your DVDs etc. here as well. Pretty cool you say?

Damn straight!

So how does this awesomeness work?

Well, nothing is for free, so first up it costs $20 for each post payable to Paypal, but we figure, that’s about the price of a lunch and if you believe in your idea, event etc… then $20 isn’t much to spend.

After that, all you’ve got to do is send $20 to mike@animationinsider.com on Paypal and send me your flyer, art, reel, whatever and as long as it meets our guidelines we’ll post it on your behalf!
Pretty easy huh?
Yep!

    • We are not an animation studio… we are a magazine more or less so you don’t ‘apply’ to us. We simply interview artists and animators across the world.

  3. I don’t have a website yet, but I’m trying to get started as a Color Consultant/Color Stylist.

    I know how to show people which colors look best on them and which color combinations to wear, and also which colors to avoid.

  16. Hi would you be interested in doing an interview on a rising star in animation from the Island of Jamaica? Animation is one field extremely hard to break into in the Caribbean because it doesn’t really exist. Let’s chat.

  17. I love to write stories and i had written a good story of four friends, Kim Dinah, Olly Stein, Jill Stain and Pim Dew. Who founded a planet, Zarko, having life existance. This story is very funny and mysterious. So what if i want to send an email of my story to you.

    • It doesn’t work that way… Promote Yourself works by you writing what you want to be seen and sending a $20 fee to Paypal upon which I post the article you’ve written.

  20. Hello guys. I’m new here, but I found great resources here about animation so I joined. Can I share my work? Here’s my demo reel: http://bemmygail.com/gallery

    I’m thinking of making a feature film, and have been reading the forum. I found a great resource here about pitching your ideas to studios, although I am planning not to go that far yet, I’d like to learn more with you guys, and get to know people like me in this industry. So hello again 🙂 (imagine me, a pink cat, waving hello to you)

  21. HELLLOOOO!!!
    I am Alan, a.k.a Thatmexicanuzer.
    I am a freelancing animator and character designer, and I recently found out about this website while revisiting What a Cartoon Show’s short: Ignoramooses. I love your work during the 90’s and hopefully I get to produce my shorts and series for a major network.

    • Thanks for the kind comments on my short The Ignoramooses! Keep at it and you’ll definitely get to make your own shorts. It’s a LOT easier these days with computers.

  22. Hi all !!
