This method worked well for lots of clients but I certainly understand it isn't what everyone expects.
- $6000 lindens per hour.
- Estimates but NO BIDS.
- Owner supplies music if it is to be used and or voiceovers if they would like to do their own voice. Music must be purchased or creative commons (commercial works will require creative commons that can be used for business purposes -- pretty rare).
I work off an account balance. Yes, that means prepaid. So for example if someone wanted a one minute video with not too many shot changes, a brief idea and willing to give me a lot of creative freedom then that would likely be around three to four hours.
An example would be something like this:
The Shared Adventure
The music from these three short videos is available for use as I purchased a set long ago.
Note that my name need not appear on any finished product.
Items are work for hire and customer holds all copyrights. I reserve the right to show films as examples of my work unless otherwise discussed. Clients are NOT allowed to claim my work as their own however.
IF clients make a lot of changes, the costs increase of course. The best method for changes is to list them all at once. Changes are billed at the same rate.
IF I complete the project in less time than estimated, the overage is refunded. Yes, really.
Any questions, contact Chic Aeon - Second Life or Kitely. IMs go to email. Notecards are fine also. I log into SL daily, Kitely not so often.
I hope you find the perfect machinimatographer for your project. Best of success!
