    Hello. I'm an animator that's getting on average 100K views a month, and I'm looking for a network to join so I can start making money.

    I do all my animations based off of video games, so I can't go directly with Youtube adsense.

    I'm wondering what the best network would be for an animator like me.



    I've looked at Maker (RPM, TGS, Maker), TGN, and Fullscreen, but I don't know what would be the best for me. I saw on a different thread that maker is good unless you're an animator. I know you guys usually say "don't join a network," but I have to because of the content I make.

    I do most of my animations with Source Filmmaker, so it's all Valve games from Steam. Amazon links wouldn't help much. I'm looking for advertisements, not affiliate-type things.

    Lol, you might want to see if any networks notice you first before you go into a network. If you are like me, I design and make my own video games on UE3, Cry3, and some animation in Source Film Maker, you really want a network to come to you. I did a mistake in the past that almost got me locked down for a stupid $2.5 per 1k views. You can always go with a network for now, temporary, for like $3.50 per 1k views with them only getting a 10% cut of things. Don't get hasty just because you want to monetize, just wait until networks start noticing you so you can demand the highest earnings possible.

    Don't join TGN or Machinima ,I made the mistake of joining TGN but I'm leaving as they have no lock in.
    I would suggest joining TGS (Maker Studios) and Fullscreen are basically just Yeousch

    I think TGS is gaming only. Maker and RPM both have a button for animation on their apply form.

    Is Maker or Fullscreen better for my needs?
