What would be a free way to get an animation out there and seen by people?

if you've posted it on newgrounds or youtube you've kind of already did that. Now if you want to be uber famous that something else

Not uber famous, we don't think that much of ourselves but do you suggest any forums or any other places we can post our animation? And we have posted it on Newgrounds :)

-post in animation forums
-submit your movie on the newgrounds portal where it will get 200 views and get a rating
-join deviantart and join several animation groups and post in their gallery (although I suggest you to post it in flash form. If its on another format, I suggest you to convert to flash because there film posting requires good quality)
-create a decent movie as people tend to pass off the bad ones
-I usually preview a movie/clip with a small animated .gif because presentation is always important.


Currently doing short rough animations here http://khanhcpham.deviantart.com/

The number one thing that gets audience attention is parodies, in reality its very rare to get "uber" fame just by making your own original short films or animations, now im not saying youl never be able to do that, prime example, egoraptor... he started making his awesome series based on video games we all love to play and he entertained us with stuff we can relate too and thats what got him his fan base, and now he is starting to make his own original content that the fans he had before, now go to watch and enjoy his OWN stuff.

parodies will get you the fans and after that just go with the flow with your own stuff and you will generate views and a bigger fanbase directed twords your own stuff! :)

Clearly the only way to become known is to make animations about INTERNET MEMES. And the old standbys of Sonic the Hedgehog, Dragonball Z and Pokemon. Do not make anything original or personal. Nobody wants to see that stuff. So just keep it to yourself. CONFORM.

That sounds like work. Really hard work. Months and months of really hard work. Maybe years. Learning how to draw. Learning how to animate. Learning how to make a movie. Learning how to edit and record audio. Learning or finding voice actors. And on and on. Isn't there an easier way? A shortcut?

you can either supervisor pay people to do the work, get a team of your own, pick a new career or take time to learn all of the above
animation is a lot of work :/ even for parodies

Some places would be

reddit.com/r/animation

or if you upload the animation youtube, you could just straight up post it to reddit.com/r/videos where it will possibly get more views.

Basically, just post it on other animation forums, and if it's funny/amazing enough it will get the attention it deserves.

You can try posting on TTG (The Tech Game). Its a gaming forum but think its mainly known for CoD related stuff but there is other stuff there too.
