Hey fellow Blenderheads,
I just wanted to share my most recent experience using Blender for producing a commercial/explainer animation.
I just recently started working on Upwork and was lucky to find a few jobs rather quickly. If you are unfamiliar with the website, it's basically an ''employment agency'' where you can apply for jobs and be reviewed by your customers AND vice versa. It IS a bit expensive -> 20% for the first 500$ for EACH client, but it enabled me to find good customers and helps me grow a business (after at least 4 years of learning solo). I am currently on the lookout for cheaper sites such as ''Hubstaff Talents'' which is entirely for free, but works quite differently also.
Here are two of the latest videos I made using Blender Internal to be efficient enough in time and quality:
I hope you found this post helpful and that maybe you can start working on a few jobs yourself via Upwork, Freelancer or even Hubstaff Talent or else.
I am also writing a post on my website about my experience and update it when I got more information regarding different websites and opportunities. Here's my website: www.moonman-pictures.com
