So a friend of mine recently won several big awards here in Europe for a 3D animated short film, and a marketing agency has asked him to quote them a price for an animation. However, even though he's very talented, 3D had been, until now, a hobby for him (he does industrial design with Catia) and he doesn't know how much to quote. He asked me, but I cannot really tell him how much to charge, since my experience is in movies and ad projects, but with real cameras, not pixels, and have no idea how long it would take. He'd be doing the 3D and hiring someone to give him a hand for the After Effects part. It's this kind of animation: https://vimeo.com/channels/smartmotion/43601859 What kind of budget does an animation video like this need? He already has a license for his 3d software and Creative Cloud, and the person hired to help him for the After Effects part would provide his/her own software, I guess (I didn't ask, but it seem logical) Thanks!
