Re-Blog from Motionographer: Commercial work with boundaries: the commissioned work model

Check out the full article at Motionographer.  There is some really interesting stuff about providing options to clients who have a small budget, but still have the room and flexibility to create something that is engaging and rewarding from the artist's perspective.

"I knew this was their first time exploring animation and that their budget was limited. So when I presented the contract, I included two options:
  • Option A would take 6 weeks and include x number of revisions and check-ins
  • Option B would take 4 weeks and consist of no revisions but would cost less
Julie chose Option B."

He continues to talk about creating a really solid process to become very clear on what the client should expect.  Obviously there is a tremendous amount of trust that has to be in place for something like this to happen, but this is a great example of creating quality work without breaking the budget by having a really solid process in place that creates confidence and trust.

  1. Very interesting model. Sounds like there could be some incentive for both parties to limit the number of revisions (even if it means the artist takes a small bath in reference to price).

    It's hard to say whether or not this is a win win scenario. I agree with Chad, there must be a huge amount of trust there in order to make it work.
