We built a new animation platform 2019-09-12 16:40:14
What's up guys! Two of my animator friends and I decided to build a streaming platform strictly dedicated to independent animators like ourselves and those on Newgrounds.
We decided to call the platform Fiyah.TV
We've been working on the platform for over a year now and we're happy to finally show the beta to you all in order to get some direct user feedback from the animation community.
For some background, my friends and I graduated from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit in 2016 and immediately saw how difficult it was to earn a living as an independent animator. So we choose to teach ourselves programming and design while working full time jobs.
When building the platform, we were greatly inspired by Twitch, Netflix and Youtube. Hence, Fiyah.TV allows anyone to create their own animated series that fans can support via subscriptions similar to Twitch. The subscription feature will be up and running next week. There is also a live stream on the home page where different shows will be featured, like television.
For now, we ask that anyone interested feel free to post their own show. Just notify me here when you do and I'll approve it.
1) The platform is still in beta so you'll probably encounter a lot of bugs. Please report any bugs you find here so that we can patch them out.
2) We ask that the shows you create have coherent themes that link each episode to one another, akin to what you'd see on TV.
3) You can post existing content that you've already created.
4) Please do not upload copyrighted content or pornography or your series will not be approved.
5) Please feel free to completely critique any aspect of the platform because we want to make sure that the platform is built for animators by animators.
Thanks for reading and looking forward to your feedback 😊
