Hey guys!

Yesterday I got my first opportunity to do freelance, to be honest I don’t know exactly how much to charge, etc. But here’s what I have so far:

$35/hour $200/day

How does that sound for a “beginner”? I will be using After Effects mainly.

Also if you have any other advice to give me don’t be afraid to post it!

Someone gave me a 1 star because he opened the “plugins required” version of my project (without having the necessary plugins installed) even though there was a pre-rendered version included….some people.

Personally I would never intentionally copy another author’s work or even their idea, but I enjoy the challenge of uploading new files more than actually making money. I like getting feedback from fellow authors and staff, if I created a copies then all the feedback I get would be useless.

I do however have a few projects like my “Dark City” project which is inspired by a scene from the “Dark Knight Rises” trailer. When I saw that trailer I was so amazed by that shot that I had to try to recreate it in After Effects. This situation was very similar to Carl’s; I wanted to challenge myself.

Conclusion in my opinion:

Copying authors = bad

Inspiration from films etc = acceptable.

January 2013 has already become my best month in earnings.

August 2012 was my best month for sales, but that won’t be the case for much longer.

Yes it’s basic, but it’s minimalist so adding things to the actually project is not a good idea IMO. However something I have done and had success with in these situations is adding more projects, maybe a project that supports image placeholders if this doesn’t already.
