deviantART is launching deviantART Film, but they want to make it very clear that this is not YouTube 2.0.
While YouTube is like a weekend movie, filled with entertainment but ultimately devoid of quality content, deviantART Film is like a film festival; an event that you know is going to be something special.
To begin with, all of their films are hand picked. No webcam rants and raves here; these are feature films that took time and effort to create.
Second, viewers can comment on specific frames of a film. Not sure what the artist was trying to portray? Instead of leaving a generic comment at the end, you can instead mark the part of the film that threw you off, and leave a comment specific to that segment.
Lastly, deviantART Films are available in DivX and h.264 formats in addition to the standard Flash, giving you higher quality and larger sized viewing options.
Considering the art that the deviants have created, I can’t wait to see what they put on Film.
