    Cool giveaway, too bad I don’t have a twitter :(

      Now’s your chance, though! You can always sign up just for this purpose and then remove your account later. Or you might find, like I did, that there are a lot of really cool animators on Twitter who will chat with you if you say something to them. :)

        Actually I think I’m gonna do it! :)

        I agree with Sabina. I dont use twitter as well and I will not make one just for this. Using readers as ads is always pathetic. Do something cool and interesting for the readers to participate. Like ‘best review’ or ‘why you find this the most important animated movie in last 5 years’ or something. ‘Why this animation guy is/was important to the industry?”. Something creative (but not too time-consuming) and interesting for others to see in the end. On the other hand, you are giving away just ONE $30 or so movie. Thats not much at all. Doubt anyone will even bother. But definitely not ‘like us’ for your friends to see and then we might randomly you. Just an opinion of a reader.

        • J.K. Riki says:

          Fair points, Alex! I definitely agree, that’s why we try to mix things up with the giveaways. Some are these “Tweet helpful articles via Twitter” and some are more in-depth discussions in the comments, like your favorite Pixar film.

          At the end of the day, we do this just to share tips and thoughts on animation with the community, so it’s all good. If we were making any money or something then I think it would be a different story. But we’re just here to help. :)

          I’d love to do a contest down the road with a much bigger prize and have it art/animation related to enter! I think that would be a lot of fun. Maybe something to consider for the future.

    “On the other hand, you are giving away just ONE $30 or so movie. Thats not much at all. Doubt anyone will even bother.”

    Wow you must be rich if you are so quick to turn your nose up at a free movie on blueray. Most of us aren’t I can’t just go buy every new film that comes out. I’m excited to have the chance to get a movie I don’t own for free and for only having to click like two buttons to enter. I don’t want to type some long thing about what my favorite movie is or whatever this is really easy. I feel like you are looking a gift horse in the mouth and finding some reason to be mad about a website doing a giveaway as a promotion but it is still giving away something they didn’t have to. And I would much rather see this kind of advertising because it is useful to getting information about animation out to more people than like the popup ads so many websites have or like how youtube puts stupid ads in front of every video and you have to wait 10 seconds to skip them which I HATE.

    Hi J.K., I read this article, and attached commentary, last week, and it’s been bothering me since. I am a long time reader, first time commenter. Useless, negative vibes are things we live with daily, but when we spin them into positives, which I’ve witnessed you do on every occasion, a persons true colors are revealed. I am compelled to support your site, efforts and insights with my words and tweets. I look forward to your future posts. Cheers,

    • J.K. Riki says:

      Thanks Danny! I do my best to keep things positive, partially I’m sure because I spent a long time on the flip side and being one of those negative-vibe folks. I understand the feeling, and I’m just glad I don’t have that mindset anymore. Hopefully by being positive I can shine a light on this other, more cheerful way we’ve found to live! Because it sure is nicer. :)

    Hey, I will bother. I would even do it every day. My kids and I saw this at the theaters and I haven’t purchased one yet, so I am definitely going to tweet, tweet, tweet. Thanks for the opportunity to enter.
