[last few frames, and about 10 frames hold at the end, got cut off for some reason, and I have no idea why, but it sucks. the same thing happened on youtube and I hate it]

[HAHAHA you can see the last few frames on my uni blog here: [link] not that they are very awesome, though. but they are where they should be at least.]

That's my final assignment for this year, I did the character design, all planning and animation, to the dialogue provided by my tutor. Apparently, it's from The Shining. He didn't tell me until I finished this and I didn't want to know earlier, either, and I have never seen the film (I feel like that's quite an embarassing fact, though) so I wasn't influenced by it in any way, so whatever you see here is entirely my fault.

I found this scene later on youtube, though, and I feel like if I'm ever going to watch this film, it will lose whole seriousness when this scene arrives.

Probably not, though. I'm sure I would be scared to death. And then I would feel like my own character gets killed.

No way. I'm not going to watch this film, oh no.

You can watch it bigger on my youtube channel [link]

I like the wide eyes at "What's your favorite food then" Adds a lot of character in a short second

@00:11Hehehe very nice acting man :D I like how you haven't drwn away too much attention from the man when he talks by having the child move so subtly. By the way, I've been trying pain stakingly hard to upload my avi files to deviant art in the animation directory, converting file types saving in different compressions etc however DA annoyingly refuses to accept them. I was wondering if you could tell me which file and how you managed to upload to DA?

@00:11Thank you so much :)

To be honest, I don't remember the format of my films because I haven't uploaded anything in a while. I think it used to be just a mov file, but I don't remember the details, like codec/compression. However, when I uploaded my animations from the 11 Second Club here, I think I uploaded the same file format as when I uploaded them for the competition (meaning that I didn't have to re-export them for DA needs), so you can go and check their requirements and compare your settings at [link] and it should be compatible with DA requirements? I think?
Also, I think DA has a bit broader tolerance than YouTube, so if your films work on YouTube, they should work here, too. But I'm not sure of that, it's more of a guess.
I just looked at the FAQ section and the films have to be below 200 MB and less than 20 mins, apparently. That doesn't seem very strict, though, and I don't know if that applies to your work, you would have to check. I think avis are generally quite big, but you said you tried different file formats, so I guess this is not the case.

Another thing is that I used to have some crazy problems with uploading films and images from my room at the student residence at which I was staying then- all pngs were uploaded damaged and films just didn't squeeze through- and I had to upload most of my stuff through university's network. I am not very good with computers, so I can't really tell with full confidence what the problem was exactly, but I am convinced it was something with the internet settings, not the file format. Probably limited broadband or something. Maybe you have a similar problem.

Aaaand the last thing, I upload most of my animations- all of them except GIFs, actually- to the "film" category. I don't know if users are allowed to upload films into any other category, and as far as I know you have to be invited to the film category by someone who was already allowed the access to be allowed to use it. I vaguely remember people being able to upload movies before the film category was introduced, but maybe they disabled it later or something. Anyway, I was going to invite you just now, but I checked and apparently everyone is only allowed to invite one person? Weird. Anyway, I have already invited one person, so if you need an invitation you would have to look for somebody who still has that option, sorry. Or you could try emailing the admins.

I don't know if you know about all this, so I'm sorry if I sound patronising or something. I hope something of this is helpful, anyway.

@00:11Hmm, I don't seem to have had any issues with uploading images that turned out damaged and such so it's probably not that. What I've been doing is uploading my files to youtube and then linking to DA though less people would view the file due to the extra effort of clicking a link which I can understand, it needs to be convenient. So they work fine on Youtube, just for some reason DA isn't reconising my avi files. The file's quite small too.

Thank you a lot for your help though, and wow I didn't expect such an in depth and thoughtful responce which I am very greatful for, sadly it seems there must be another issue that it's not reconising my avi files. I'll keep using the youtube method for now, but will email some admin about the problem too since after looking through DA's requirements the file I have should work just fine. Maybe it's something with my computer not naming it properly or something. Must still be something my end, but thank you again for all the trouble of answering my message, it's much appreciated.
Keep up the awesome animation work man!! :)

@00:11Thank you and you are welcome :) I think it might be that thing with the "film" category, I just remembered that my friend couldn't upload her movie files and animation tests to DA, so I sent her my invitation to the film category and since then she had no problems with that. So if you know somebody who is allowed to use film category for upload, you could ask them to invite you if they still have an invitation left.

Anyway, whatever it is, admins could probably help you with that. So. Good luck :)
