Featured Animator: Artem™ - ~Evil Awakening~

Artem™
GoAnimator Artem™  is the August winner of my GoAnimate, Get Featured in TET's Blog contest. Artem™ has had his account with GoAnimate since April of 2013 and in that time has amassed 126 followers and published 11 animations.

Artem™ chose to feature his contest entry, ~Evil Awakenings~, saying...

"I chose this animation because it was a challenge that I beat. I was having a lot of trouble with this animation. It was a theme that I never used before and a short amount of time."

This is the first time someone has chosen their winning video to feature so I thought I'd add in my comments as to why this animation was selected to win...

"Attention to detail and great editing, along with a strong script set this apart from the rest. Use of audio to add background noise and to suggest actions occurring off screen was impressive. Then showing a fight scene by not actually showing a fight scene but by using creative editing to imply actions that are occurring was very well done. Capped off with some good voice acting and a really good use of a custom darkness effect by Immortal Dreams."

Watch Artem™'s animation below and then read about his inspiration and challenges in creating the video.

~Evil Awaking~ by Artem™ on GoAnimate


Inspiration...

I was inspired by two other users on this site. Chaostoon and Denom. Chaostoon, because he made a very cool video called Swords. And I decided to make my animation a fight/attack. Denom, because he makes dark and spooky videos. That's why I had the dark ending in my video.

Main Challenge...

This animation was the hardest I ever made. I made it in a short time, but boy... was it a struggle. I needed to make an animation that had some plot and story, but at the same time wasn't too long and squished in the 1 minute. I made probably 3 different types of videos, but turned them down because they did not have the perfect blend. I finally got this one out, right on the deadline.

If you've enjoyed Artem™'s work then why not check out more of Artem™'s animations on GoAnimate.

  2. Congratz Artem™. Even though I had just watched your entry the other day, I figured I'd watch again while I was here. I enjoyed it just as much the second time. I agree with TET's write-up in that you did some nice stuff in this, especially since you have only been on the site for 1/2 a year. Looking forward to more of your work.

  3. Great job on this animation. You got a lot done with the time length. It was worth the effort. Congratulations on the win. TET, thanks for hosting your contests to give all of us a look at what people can create to be viewed in a minute or less.
