Iv worked on a number of music video projects in the past including two videos for recent singles by Nero and Punks Jump Up.
I’d be very interested to know a bit more about the project, budget, deadline etc.
You can see examples of my previous work at www.smudgethis.com
Having just returned from a year long stay in Tunisia I would like to express an especially strong Ramadan Mubarak to all within the Arab nations who are working towards a new country free of corruption and full of hope. I hope the Jasmine revolution brings the changes so longed for by so many for so long.
I think a point should be made also that those wishing to prove their devotion to their faith will be abstaining from food and water in temperatures in excess of 45 – 50 degrees, a test I believe very few of us would be able to pass.
It’s a dangerous thing to rant on a client although I do know how you feel though, and I am sure there is not a single designer, coder, or anyone who else who ‘creates’ stuff for a living who hasn’t felt frustrated at one point in their lives with a client.
It’s all part of the game unfortunately, you just have to weigh up whether that client is essential to your business and if not, just say goodbye. I am sure you will soon find another client to occupy your time and fingers crossed it will be a more efficient and amiable business relationship.
Alternatively just go have a beer and smash something massive and made of glass.
I managed to snap this pigeon in Hyde Park a while back. They have a bad rep for being all grim and disgusting but I liked the look of this one. He had a pretty cool firey eye!
Great idea! Personally I use a lot of acoustic folk, happy clappy, whistly stuff.
It tends to work well with the minimal, bouncy, happy style of projects I currently have uploaded to Videohive,
Be sure to let me know if you create anything that matches this, I’m always on the lookout for great examples.
So based on your idea in case that you choose to use an already successful audio track with more than 100 sales….. you have to give commission because the track helped your projects sales
I think that sometimes the music is VERY IMPORTAND and I am happy just by the fact that some audiojungle authors give me the right to use their music.
DON ’T undervalue the power of music .REALTHING
No No! This is the last thing I wanted people to think!!
I completely understand that a lot of my sales would have been the result of the excellent audio used within the project. A piece of motion without the right audio can be flat, lifeless and downright boring and will more than likely, not sell too well.
I am not underestimating the power of audio AT ALL . Please understand that, the Videohive – Audiojungle combination is deadly!
MR: I hadn’t actually noticed that. I’m sure from a technical point of view it would be fairly easy to track the sale of an audio item that was linked from an item within your portfolio.
VSN : I do agree, the price is fantastic for the quality of the audio. I suppose I was just curious at to why Envato wasn’t making a point of trying to retain sales within the network and helping to encourage this communal vibe by offering a small financial reward for promoting/selling other individual’s items.
At the end of the day the AE templates here are also very reasonably priced and if you have created a successful file that is selling into the hundreds per month, that extra dollar or two really starts to add up.
I am sure also that a huge chunk of my sales have come from the fact that I have used a composer’s fantastic audio.
I just thought it might be worth putting it out there. I’m on both sides of the fence.
A puzzler… but thanks for your thoughts.
I will keep this short as I am not sure if it is a good idea, or just me trying to snag a few extra dollars.
Every project (with one exception) that I have on Videohive uses a piece of audio from audiojungle. Within the item description I have linked to the audio file and I have it on good word that a number of Audiojungle users have seen boosts in sales as a result of this.
Now… my trouble is this. We Videohive authors create video files that work with audio and yet receive absolutely no commission for the referred sale of the audio. After all that sale was made as a result of the After Effects project that we have created. Surely it is in the interests of the Envato team to encourage further purchasing by one customer within the Envato network, as opposed to from another site.
Now I am not asking for the sale to be shared, after all the audio was created by the Audiojungle author and they are entitled to their 50% (or whatever rate they are on) of the sale. I do however feel it would be fair to offer 20-30% to all Videohive authors who sell another product as a result of their hard work, be it audio, a stock photo used in the template etc.
I would be interested to hear from anyone else on this, especially Audiojungle authors who see sales boosted by a successful Videohive item that uses their composition.
That is all.
Hmmm, can’t find it either.
