Where can i find clients for my Motion Graphics?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, so yeah since I love AE, I found that making a motion graphic is easy but somewhat time-consuming

 

I made a quick 10 secs full motion graphics (as I'm practicing & trying to make it better)

 

So since I want to buy a high-end 2 rigs, I wanted to save some money.... & I found out that motion graphics are very valuable for companies

 

So the question is;

How can I find clients that pay a somewhat good amount on a 60-sec motion graphic (keep in mind I'm working by myself + I can provide smooth animations) 

 

And for any tips I'd be grateful, thank you

You need to have a brand for yourself, no one high paying wants to hire you if you are an unknown nobody. There are thousands of people on the internet willing to do it for them, but they are all unknown quality. That is why companies pay so much, because they have one guy/firm they are buying from, and they are 100% trustworthy, and will deliver great content at the deadline.

 

So first thing lower expectations, start from friends/family, then freelancing, local businesses, and start to compile your portfolio. Have some certificates or something too.

 

So try to work on your skills, and maybe start freelancing/fiverr/ doing project based work.

If you are good, then in a few years you will create animations for the big companies.

That can be said of many job, but the quality of the work is what counts. That is still why they don't hire randos.

Create yourself a portfolio and send that to someone marketing companies. That's what I think such short things are good. If you have artistic skills, you can get freelancer contract or even permanent position.

Hi

 

I was a freelance 3D graphic artist. 

 

What I did was target large companies that did what I did. The purpose was to let them know that I existed and I would be willing to take on jobs that may be too small or not profitable enough for them to bother with. As a freelancer, I was are not their competition and it is better for them to point clients in my direction than just saying no. 

 

I also looked to see what associations potential clients belong to. These associations have member lists that you can look up and send info via email. I had demos that I personalize by plugging in their logos to show what I could do for them.

It is also good to have a .com website to host your demos. Don't use cookie cutter web services.  

 

Offer aid to the companies that make the hardware and software you use. I demoed 3D hardware and software at trade shows. I did it for room and travel with no other cost to them. Being on the show floor makes you relevant. In my case I got software for free and hardware at cost as well.  

 

Good Luck
