So.. there is this ad agency that I do regular freelance for (advertising design usually).. and well, they are about to do a commercial spot, and need someone to pencil a storyboard for them... and they need it Wednesday. And of course, since I am the only designer they have that has a traditional art background... they have fingered me to do it.
Thing is, I haven't done storyboarding since college, have no idea what to charge them for it, or what questions to ask to make sure I have all the info I need to get one started. How many panels? Scenes? How long will the spot be? I am clueless about the technical jargon!!
Any advice at all? Help please!!
Even some links would be helpful.
I am so short on time already.. I am hoping some of you might know some helpful things off hand so I'll be ready to talk business later tonight, or tomorrow morning... whenever they decide to call!
Thank you in advance!
Serously, if you have good bookstores where you live you may want to buy or just browse this book: http://www.amazon.com/Cinematics-Sto...1557649&sr=8-1
It's a small and slim book but well organized and illustrated. Very good as a handy reference.
Re: negotiating and stuff, just hunt down portfolio sites of tvc boarders. Some post their rates and style. Adjust that to your situation and location.
Thank you guys for the quick responses....
and lol @ Flip.. yes, I read your horror story!
Any advice on what to charge? Would I be screwing myself at $75/H?
