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.

So hello again 🙂 (imagine me, a pink cat, waving hello to you)

  29. Good afternoon, my name is Oleg.

    There is a question about freelancing 3d character animation.

    Are there people who work only as 3D character animators, as highly qualified specialists? Or do you still need to be cg-generalist?

    Question about advertising and cinema.

    I want to start working as a freelancer, but I do not know if there is a demand for people who do very well, but only do 3D character animation.

    These are some examples:
