Transitory Content Platforms for Animators.

“No, Homer, very few cartoons go out live, it’s a terrible strain on the animator’s wrist.”

Further to my experimenting in Instagram Stories, I fired up the old Snapchat account and am now posting (?) there regularly.

I’m trying to keep the two streams populate with separate content, and indeed, it is already very clear the difference in form. Instagram video quality is higher, so animation (well, my kind of animation anyway) does break up so badly in the compression. Also Instagram doesn’t massively foreground when you have loaded something from the camera roll, any manipulated or animated video gets put in a frame in Snapchat.

Follow me on Snapchat and Instagram, and see what you think.
