Artist Spotlight: qfilmstv
Kickstarting week 1 with a rising artist that has a passion for vibrance and colour!
Welcome to Artist Spotlight!
Welcome to my brand new series- Artist Spotlight! This will be a weekly column where I provide you creators a chance to chat to me about your work, and get the recognition that you whole-heartedly deserve! Stay tuned, it could be you next. Can we find the next big NFT artist? Let’s find out.
Antony or better known as qfilms tv, is an artist with a wealth of experience dating all the way back to the origins of Twitter in 2008. He is a VFX 3D artist renowned for his vibrant and futuristic style. Having worked across a variety of mediums, he has learned everything there is to know about the field. Inspired by film and photography at a young age, he is now using these forms to create stories and convey emotion to his audience. As he continues to create his space-themed designs, he is now hoping to take his work to the moon in the NFT market, growing day by day. Ranked in the top 1000 artists by cryptoart.io, Antony has a proven track record of success and is eager to elevate to the next level!
Antony has a passion for colorful art, reflected in his most recent artwork ‘paranoia’. This is a 1/1 animated NFT that also comes with a still render, bursting with energy and intrigue. As spotted in his prior work, ‘Hank’ a mysterious figure reappears in a hazmat suit, an individual that embodies the title paranoia. With a following of 800 on foundation and selling out designs on makersplace, Antony is on the path to success becoming an important figure in the space. With colours at the forefront of his style, there is no doubt that he will explode very soon.
Since entering the space, Antony has strived to be a part of the community. He is keen to support his fellow artists and works to inspire others in the scene. Because of this, I believe that he is very deserving of his very own shoutout. With the NFT space beginning to heat back up in parallel with the boom occuring in February, 1/1 artists should expect more traction and opportunities to arise in the near future. If you like Antony’s work, I would FOMO in before it’s too late!

You are an old timer! 2008 was the year you joined Twitter, was you creating art during this time?
Since the age of 11 I have had a passion for creating and story-telling. I got into filming, photography and story-telling, as a way of expressing my love for creating emotions. During that time I have produced film and animation work for a range of well known global clients.
You have worked across a variety of mediums across the years, can you tell us more about what you did?
Filming, 3D and Photography has always been close to my heart. I love the way you can express your feelings through art and create emotions and feelings that can be absorbed by the audience. As mentioned before, I think story-telling is the most important skill you can have. The ability to influence the audience is so rewarding and seeing, hearing or feeling the vibe from them, is best feeling in the world.
When did you first enter the NFT scene as an artist and have you found it to be rewarding?
I entered the NFT world late 2020 and minted my first piece named ‘Glowing Emotion’ in Feb 2021. Getting my first ever sale was insane, the happiness it brings knowing that another human has connected with your art is unreal!
Getting onto a platform was tough back then, and now I’m so happy to say more believed in me and I’m on 3 of the best!
Your artwork is super vibrant, perfectly capturing light and brightness. Who and what inspired you to pursue this style?
I’ve always had the passion for light, whether it being producing DMX light/laser shows, 3D animations or music videos. Colour is so important to me, it connects a happy, psychedelic feeling in my brain that is so rewarding. I love how vibrant colours can create happiness, positivity, and hope, so I love to include as many variants as possible. I also have a love for purple as you will see from my artwork. Many artists inspire me from many different forms of art, Beeple, I love for his crazy ideas, XCOPY, Rectric Dreams, MBSJQ, David Ariew have all inspired me and light inspiration comes from Gareth Emery’s laserface productions.
Where do you see yourself in a years time?
I see myself working with many other artists and continuing to build my brand, moving more into animation.
You have an opportunity to tell investors why they should invest in your art, what are you going to say to them?
I push myself daily as I have passion, I never give up, I always succeed in whatever I do, and I like to take people with my on my journey, to help and support them too. If you told me 6 months ago I would be in the top 1000 artists Globally I would of not believed you! I so happy for what I’ve achieved so far and would like to thank everyone that supports me, a simple like or tweet can do wonders for an artist!
I have so many amazing collectors that have invested in me from the beginning and I continue to produce art that will raise my game to keep their investments safe. I will always strive to be bigger and better and believe me when I say, this is only the beginning!
