Did you know...?


There is a film category in resources? You can easily locate it in the browse by following this Path:Resources>Film resources, where you will see its subcategories. The film resources category is for all type of resources, in film format. this includes, Software tutorials (Photoshop, illustrator, etc), Film Production tutorials (How to's on making films), Stock film (footage that you give rights for people to use in their films. state your terms in the creator comments), and even deviantART tutorials (guiding through how to use deviantART).

How, please!


You need a film invitation to submit to the film category, as well as the film resources category. Its true! There are certain requirements to upload to the film categories. Make sure you get permission to use any music or images in your films (example, if you are making a photoshop tutorial don't use Naruto on it, or have music playing or added to it), and make sure the quality is good! minimum size is 300px on the shortest size, and the minimum length is 10 seconds. You must also make sure your file is no more than 200mb or 20 minutes (whichever comes first). Its okay to upload in 2 parts if you have to.

But where do I get a film invite?


You can get a Film invite really easily. All you have to do is apply using the Film Application request form. make sure you have your sample uploaded somewhere like youtube to show the team your sample (we need to see it to double check that you can read the guidelines ;p ), and once its approved you are free to upload all your films forever! Its extremely simple! If you are stumped or need advice you can always see if the film team is hanging out in deviantartfilm, or check out deviantartfilm and contact one of the Film team members on the top of the main journal. We are always glad to help out!

Great! I want to do it, but how do I make them?


Well, that's a big question! If you are shooting stock footage, its pretty simple, just grab your camera and shoot away! try to keep the camera steady!


Tutorials that's a different story.
:pointr: Traditional art Tutorials: Want to show how you paint on Canvas, or do markers? all you need is a camera with a mic, and a tripod. set the camera up where your drawing surface is easily visable, and you can still work comfortably. Do a couple test shoots to make sure your voice is getting picked up properly and its easy to see. Its often a good idea to set up your materials and plan out your tutorial before you begin! the categories arent ideal for submitting this, but feel free to stick them in software tutorials> misc until that's fixed. Here are some examples:


:pointr: Digital art/software tutorials: This ones a bit Trickier. you need a screen recording program to do that. Camtasia studio and Adobe Captivate both have free trial versions you can test out. You have to follow the programs instructions in the help file to set up your recording. What a screen recorder does, in conjunction with a microphone, records a selected area on your screen. we have many examples in our gallery of tutorials that use programs like this:

Again, if you need and advice or help with anything contact your film team, check the Filmfaq or ask the community in the Film forum! We cant wait to see your Resources!

Hmm...this proves interesting. My production team and I are making machininma videos we were advertising to the general DA public...A.K.A. my watchers. I had entertained the thought of making a seperate account for these videos, but I'm sure such videos...material wouldn't be approved by the DA staff.

Why wouldn't they be approved?

Well, after reading the FAQ ascosiated along with this article, a description mentioned was 'artistic videos'. The previously mentioned machinimas in production from my production group I wouldn't really consider...artisitc. They follow more along the lines of comedic short series/action series.

If the DA staff would consider such Machinima production titles from Rooster Teeth (Like Red vs. Blue) artistic, then perhaps I would be mistaken in my idea.

Stock films can also be very useful as reference for making animated .gif's. :-) For example: I was desperately looking for a stock film of a walking cat when I made the animated stamp for =Cat-in-the-Stock, but unfortunately there are hardly any stock films of animals. :-( I needed a film for referencing the walk movement.

Give us more animal stock films, please! :please:

There are a lot of sites that provide music for this sort of thing, but popular artists usually don't give permissions.
Depends on what music you're looking for.

FAQ #852: Where can I find music for my films? might help!
