... to the unofficial Disney (and other animation) Music Videos community! It is here that we, the makers and lovers alike, show our love for animation and music put together (quite stylishly :D). Exhibit your animated music videos PROUDLY! Moderated and maintained by anothersoapbox and xx_xmadnessx_xx. Since this community has just recently opened (as of 5/21/06), there aren't many rules as to how to do/post things, but there are still a few ground rules that must take place in order to keep this a drama/flame/mess-free community for all. Please take the time to read them, yes?
R U L E S
oo1. Play nice, please. If you think a vidder needs improvement on something, there's no need to be rude about it. Constructive criticism (if the maker doesn't straight-out prohibit it): yes. Flames: no. oo2. No posting of anything extremely unrelated such as movie discussions or graphics other than music videos (there are plenty of other communities out there for such purposes). If there's something you wish to post, but still aren't sure if it's allowed, ask either the mod.: anothersoapbox or the co-mod.: xx_xmadnessx_xx oo3. Read the FAQ.
F A Q
oo1. What animations are/aren't allowed in the music videos?
Well, this community is mainly for Disney music videos. However, others are most definitely allowed! Refer to the following list:
Allowed: Any and all Disney creations (this includes claymation, and... on the subject of exceptions... real-life Disney movies are fine as well. But only Disney.) and any other animation not Disney-related (Anastasia, Thumbelina, Shrek, even Nickelodeon) is acceptable... EXCEPT, and read closely here, Japanese animation. Again, there are some exceptions such as the few projects in which Walt Disney Studios has been involved with. I will name those I know from memory (and fom a bit of research =D): Spirited Away, Kingdom Hearts I/II (the only games allowed), Howl's Moving Castle, My Neighbor Totoro, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Kiki's Delivery Service, Whisper of the Heart, Castle in the Sky, Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, aaaand I'm sure there are more, but these are the most well-known.
Not allowed: Oh... it's already mentioned above... Well, a quick review then! Absolutely NO anime and NO real-life. All exceptions are listed above.
oo2. Are advertisements for other communities allowed?
I'm going to go ahead and allow it, under a few conditions: it must be Disney, animation, or music-video related.
oo3. Are you accepting affiliates?
Why, yes, I am! =D Thank you for asking! Comment here to be affiliated. Only accepting Disney, graphic, or music-video journals... or any combination of the three!
oo4. Any specific format I should use when posting my music videos?
Not necessarily! However, if you prefer some sort of structure then use the following, if you wish (fill out whatever applies):
Affiliates, or anyone else who wishes to pimp the stuffing out of this community, may use the following graphics (which are, pathetically, just bits cut off the icon XD), or simply use an lj tag! I'll make different ones later on. If you wish, you may contribute some as well!
