Frequently Asked Questions
How does the payment process work?
There are a variety of different payment processes you can use. Which one you use is up to you.

Why Should I hire a freelancer instead of a large company?
Larger studios are more capable of taking on big projects such as feature films and TV shows because they have more man power. However, there are also great benefits to hiring a freelance animator:
I have a unique request which is not on your list
By all means, send an order request or send me an email. The list of services is just an overview of the most popular services I am able to give. If you need to see the list again you can see my variety of services here.
How can I reduce my production cost?
The estimated budget cost varies greatly from project to project. Here are a few ways to get a cheaper quote.
What if I am not happy with the end result?
This has never happened before. I'll explain why:
You are able to see the quality of what I can make. My website makes it very clear of what my limits and capabilities are, so there's hardly any risk of misunderstanding. I am committed to being transparent - letting you know if there are any features I consider too ambitious for the budget. Occasionally I might have to take on the responsability of managing your expectations, but overall animation is an incredibly elastic medium where anything is possible. Want someone to transform into a T-rex? No problemo! Want it to be set on the moon of saturn? Be my guest.
Especially during the making of an animation, there are frequent progress updates throughout the creative timeline where you are able to give revisions and preferences. Therefore there should be no reason for the end result to not be exactly what you want and expect.
The same goes for art commissions, although generally they are faster and there are fewer opportunities for progress updates, so there may be revisions to the finished piece. I even give clients the opportunity to watch me create the designs over Skype screen share, where you can oversee the process in real time.
I am planning a Kickstarter campaign. Can I pay later when it is properly funded?
Crowd funded campaigns are very hit-and-miss as to weather they meet their funding goals. I cannot risk working for someone who may or may not have the funds to pay me. It's just not logical. You need to have your budget ready before I start working on your project.
If you have a budget ready to spend on preparing the crowdfunding campaign itself, that is a different story. I would welcome that.
Please be truthful with your budget and that will help us both to arrange a deal.
