So, you finished your short film or demo reel and are ready to be seen by the industry professionals and start your career in the film or video game industry. Let us help you get seen and make you famous in the process!.

Mad Artist Publishing would like to invite you to show us your hard work, send us a url of your 2D, 3D, VFX, other short video, film, showreel. Simply Facebook message us at www.Facebook.com/MadArtistPublishing telling us who you are with the URL to your video. If you wish to be more discrete send us an email to madartistpublishing@gmail.com. If your submission fits one of our channels and we feel we can help you we will add you to  www.Youtube.com/MadArtistPublishing or www.Youtube.com/MadArtistReels. Once your work is up, we will promote you and your film across the web and in our digital and printed books. Your film will be seen by over 50 000+ members of our communities, many of whom are creative and art directors at the biggest video game and film production companies around the world. We even know the great Mr. John Howe of the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit.

Our books are sent to top game and film and design studios that are always looking for great talent and they've trusted our books for over 2 years now. Be seen and remembered by hollywood producers and our partners at Disney and even showcased on the Disney channel as a Favorite. We also hand select some of the animators that provide us with their reels and assign them to freelance projects that studios and companies ask us to help with. All films we showcase on our channel are considered to be published in our interactive film books that we send to festivals, producers and incorporate in our promotional campaigns. These books are similar to our ANIMATION STORIES as featured at www.sketchoholic.com/flipbook/animationstories 

So if you are ready to be promoted and hopefully get famous like many of the artists and animators we've helped along the way please follow the steps below. Before you send us any videos ensure you have all copyright/music/effects releases and you credit each person (you may also provide their URLS), if you have questions or are ready, send all the materials to madartistpublishing@gmail.com


TO PROMOTE YOUR FILM ON OUR VIDEO CHANNEL(s):

Send a downloadable URL (vimeo/yousend/dropbox/wetransfer) to your film/video/reel that's minimum of HD720p. (1080p version is preferred). If you have a native MOV file for example that's 500MB for example, please send that as a seperate downloadable URL as well. Film festival requires your entry to be the highest possible resolution, we will send them the native file. All films that are showcased on our channel and all demo reels are eventually published in our interactive printed / digital books similar to ANIMATION STORIES found at www.sketchoholic.com/flipbook/animationstories this is why we require your film to be uploaded on our Youtube.com/MadArtistPublishing channel and your original film credits are always referenced in the description.

Our Video channel is browsed by many recruiters from the industry and many festivals ask us to grant them permission to showcase your film. If you would like to have your film screened on broadcast television stations as well as web and offline festivals, you will state this in your permission statement once you gather all your materials and send it to us. In all cases we do not receive any payments for screening your films, however we have negotiated scripts and deals with third party producers for certain short animated films that were turned into TV pilots and series. If you video is a lucky one picked, you agree to us representing you in the license negotiations, we handle the paperwork and our 20% finder's fee will be included in the negotiations along with an extended contract if a new project is created based on your materials. You will be notified if anyone requests your film to be screened on external websits, festivals and what prizes are included. Mad Artist Publishing always pays all submission fees of your film to festivals. 

PROVIDE US WITH YOUTUBE DESCRIPTION and SEARCH TAGS

Starving soldiers divide a measly last meal when sick allies arrive at their base. Their affliction takes a turn for the worse and one of the Allie's head turns to bread. The hungry eyes and murderous teeth of the starving soldiers are kept at bat for the moment by the Sergeant in command. The breadhead soon dies, his head immediately rotting beyond edible. When the other ally begins to transform to food, he starving soldiers desperation forces the battle between hunger and humanity.
