Newgrounds Wiki: Movie Guidelines

In addition to the rules outlined in ourĀ Terms of Use:

Our focus is on animation. If you want to try live action here, it must be a short film with legit production value and preferably some animation component done in post production.

You must be the creator and owner of the content you are submitting.

You must credit and have rights to the music in your submission, or be using music that grants rights freely. Your favorite song from the radio can't be played here. Here are some music resources.

Your submission must not be a modified version of someone else's work, including tutorial files.

Your submission must not simply be an advertisement.

Do not submit copyrighted video clips or photographs you did not create.

You may not submit photography or video of naked people.

You may not submit photography/video images of excessive gore and/or "snuff."

Do not submit illegal photography/video such as child pornography and bestiality. We WILL contact the FBI!

Sexual content involving underage characters is prohibited, please don't look for grey areas.

Your submission must not be racist or downright hateful towards specific groups of people.

You may parody existing movie submissions but you must create your own artwork.

Personal attacks towards other NG contributors will likely result in removal.

Your submission must not be a pointless "demo" or "preview" without any redeeming qualities.

Do not submit something that is merely a sound visualizer set to music, or a recording of your music project timeline. If you want to promote your song in the movie portal, it should be set to original animation like a proper music video; otherwise stick to the Audio Portal.

Do not submit Let's Play videos or anything that primarily depends on recorded video game footage.

Do not submit pictures in a slideshow format.

Do not submit speedpaint / art timelapse videos. We would like to accommodate these in the future but for now your best option would be to embed a YouTube video under your finished art entry in the Art Portal.

Do not submit low quality entries with the intent to give users "free blam points."

Do not swap out your original entry with something totally different.

Do not re-submit your entry after it has been BLAMMED without making noticeable improvements.

Make sure your submission has been properly rated.
