Making money. How much to expect and how to make more of it.

October 19, 2009 - By 

So many people want to know what they can expect to get paid in this industry. It’s always a difficult question to answer because it depends on so many things. In short, you need to ask yourself three questions to start to figure out what your salary range or day rates should be.

Ask yourself:

  • How good are you?
  • Where do you live?
  • How connected are you?

Check out the video for more specifics.

Update:
here are a few more great suggestions from the comments:

Interview: Questions About the Motion Design Industry and Process

June 3, 2009 - By 

Today I answer questions from an interview sent in from a student in Austria. Crazy hair and all, (don’t worry, I’m getting a haircut today) I go though a ton of questions about the process of motion design.

Questions Answered…
1. Who is Nick Cambpell – Can you introduce yourself?
2. What is Motion Design for you? (Is there a definition for you?)
3. How did you get to Motion Design? Did you always know that you want to work as a
professional motion designer or did you have other dreams in mind?
4. Creativity often connects to inspiration. From where do you get your dose of
inspiration for your work?
5. What is more important for you – private or commercial work? Do you take your
private work as serious and professional as the commercial works?
6. What about the issue of telling a story and the side of design. Which aspect do you
think is more important or is there always a connection between them in a motion
design?
7. How far do you see a connection between still images (photography) and moving
images (motion design). Is there a strong connection between them? Do you think
that a still image has more power than moving pictures?
8. Can you describe a general approach for one of your Motion Designs? Which tools or
software do you usually use?
9. Do you see any future in Motion Design or will it stop in some years, because it?s a
kind of trend today?
10. Is there a style or which kind of Motion Design you do prefere or work with? And why?
11. Do you have a favourite Motion Design which you really like or admire and why?



Do these types of interviews help with learning about motion design or should I stick to just doing tutorials? Love to see some of YOUR questions in the comments to answer in a later interview.
