I work as a freelance animator. I had a meeting with a
potential client for freelance animation work on a kid’s TV show
Client: So in addition to doing the animation, can you also design a book cover, a newsletter template, stationary designs, business cards and an merchandise catalogue?
Me: I cannot. I have no experience doing those things.
Client: What? But your resume says that you have a BFA in traditional 2D animation, this is 2D. Paper. Same thing, right?
At this point he waved
a piece of paper in my face to show that yes, it is 2D.
He also informed me also he couldn’t pay me yet, but he promised me that once his TV show hits the air, gets sponsors and win Emmy awards, I would get paid big time.
