…deviantART now shows Films?

deviantART Films

deviantART is launching deviantART Film, but they want to make it very clear that this is not YouTube 2.0.

While YouTube is like a weekend movie, filled with entertainment but ultimately devoid of quality content, deviantART Film is like a film festival; an event that you know is going to be something special.

To begin with, all of their films are hand picked. No webcam rants and raves here; these are feature films that took time and effort to create.

Second, viewers can comment on specific frames of a film. Not sure what the artist was trying to portray? Instead of leaving a generic comment at the end, you can instead mark the part of the film that threw you off, and leave a comment specific to that segment.

Lastly, deviantART Films are available in DivX and h.264 formats in addition to the standard Flash, giving you higher quality and larger sized viewing options.

Considering the art that the deviants have created, I can’t wait to see what they put on Film.

…It’s Things Thursday: The Animation Show?

The Animation Show Posters

The Animation Show is a collection of very cutting edge animations put together by Mike Judge and Don Hertzfeldt. Mike is the creator of Beavis and Butthead, Office Space and King Of The Hill, and Don created Rejected, an Internet sensation. The show is more of a film festival than a movie, traveling across the country and usually just playing in a single showing per venue, but it’s definitely worth the price of admission. I have seen all three shows, including the latest one this past Tuesday, and it continues to impress me with the variety and the uniqueness of the included animations. If you get a chance, definitely check out a life showing, otherwise, the DVD collections will have to satisfy your desire for off the wall animation. My spoon is too big.
