Tales of Slacker Bonding
Wanted: Digital Arts, Video, Animation, and Photography Submissions
Tales of Slacker Bonding is for all slackers who’ve ever been hopelessly in love, fallen heartbroken and battered out of it, mourned over the lack of it, and then thought they had it all figured out.
We are also the destination for web savvy Gen-Xers looking to share ideas about film, music and social commentary
Tales of Slacker Bonding: www.slackerbonding.com is currently seeking digital artists, web video makers animators and photographers to submit work inspired by relationships, Generation X, pop culture and how they all intertwine. Before you check out what we’re after, understand that we can’t offer payment as of yet, but you get a little fame and fodder for your portfolio in exchange.
General style and tone for the site:
This site is meant to be simultaneously intimate, smart, emotional, and irreverent. Make your work dynamic, original and energetic, but also with a message and context. First person perspective is preferred. Explorations of sex and sexuality in the context of relationships are fine, but keep it relevant and not pornographic.
Send us your finished piece or a concept for a piece that will strum or snap heart strings with a personal take on any aspect of modern love and relationships: The whip of cruel heartbreak, the fleeting fire of lust, the delusions of illogical crushes, the electronic joy of modem love, or the bad-for-you lure of destructive relationships.
We also want digital poetry? be it Flash or Shockwave or traditional video format. Again, all we ask is that it’s edgy, compelling and original.
Specs for digital art and multimedia:
We’re open to your digital creativity, pro or not, so pitch us your idea or send us your goods. Files can’t exceed 5 megs due to server restrictions. We like Flash, Shockwave for Director, and QuickTime.
Give us your shorts. Your video, that is. Make them 2-5 minutes long and full of grace and insightful wit (or just make them say something interesting about love, relationships and pop culture). Must be compressed for Real Video. Files can’t exceed 5 megs due to server restrictions. Contact us for further details.
We’re always on the lookout for interesting and compelling images that relate to the site’s theme and content, as well as photographers who’d like an assignment or two specific to our stories. Images can be e-mailed in jpeg, gif, or tiff formats, but should be set at a resolution of 72 dpi (or 150dpi for higher quality and we’ll shrink it to 72dpi) and sized at no more that 4×6 inches.
If you’re an artist with a talent for illustration or comics, we’d like to showcase your work. Pitch us your ideas, send us your creations, or steer us toward your online portfolio. Your work can be sent in .gif, bmp, tiff, ai or jpg formats.
Wondering where to send your queries, ideas, questions, and documents for everything we just listed?
