Madefire Brings Motion Books To deviantART

Madefire and deviantART have struck a new partnership, giving deviantART creators new tools to create digital “Motion Books” through Madefire.

You can see the Madefire app in action in the video embedded above–a new way to make traditional comic books more interactive. Follow this link to read Motion Books on deviantART. Here’s more about the deal:

The deal consists of a creative partnership where the entire deviantART creator community is given unlimited access to Madefire’s revolutionary, browser-based publishing platform to create and distribute content while individually controlling the price point. Using deviantART’s Premium Content Platform, the content will reach an enormous worldwide audience while taking advantage of the Platform’s built-in payment and royalty systems fuelled by deviantART’s virtual currency. The content will also then be available on mobile through the Madefire App.

Last year, we interviewed the producer and director deviantART Network, finding out more about the community of artists, writers and creators.
