A Look at the SlashThree Collective


If you’ve been a reader of this website, you’re probably well aware of the SlashThree Art Collective. Their members have been the focus of several interviews and have written many tutorials for our site. Today, we decided to dig a bit deeper into some of SlashThree’s 4-year history and present a list of some of our favorite pieces from that time. Let’s take a look!

It was started as a simple discussion forum where artists could freely talk and get away from the average art forum vibe.

How is SlashThree set apart from other collectives?

One major component separating us from the other collectives is the level of enthusiasm and dedication. The energy is palpable, we're hungry. It feels like we finally have a rock solid staff in place who recognize the potential of the group, and who are passionate about taking it to the next level.

We're feeding off of one another, sharing ideas and following through with them. We're in the process fleshing out some really innovative concepts and I can't wait for them take shape. It’s an exciting time. I wish I could say more, but for now keep an eye on our Twitter and Website for updates.

What are the most important goals you're attempting to achieve?

It's safe to say the goals of the collective have changed significantly since its inception, and I suspect they will continue to do so in the years to come. As the collective matures, the tone of the group has become more and more serious. A good percentage of our artists are working as full time industry professionals at this point, so the focus of the collective has shifted in order to facilitate those changes. We are working to develop new avenues of exposure, sponsorship, and participation with high caliber contests and events.

A recent milestone was being offered the distinct honor of presenting at this years OFFF (Online Flash Film Festival) in Barcelona. It was both humbling and encouraging for the collective as a whole. I think for some of the artists it was also validation that the collective and their contributions to it aren't going unnoticed. In a broad sense our main objective is to just keep doing what we do. Building friendships, improving our skills, and finding new ways to give back to the community that shows us so much love.
