I want to make some animations for a bowling alley where I go to a lot. They've recently been updating its looks (new carpet, tables, ball-return, pins) but they haven't updated the pics/animations that play when someone throws a ball.
I want to fix that. I know the owner of the bowling alley and he's a nice guy. I think that I could make a deal with him and make some new pics/animations.
The only problem is, i'm still learning how to use Flash and i'm not going to be near that bowling alley much longer. After having some experience with Flash, I understand most of it, but nonetheless, I am still a beginner.
I plan to practice a lot before the summer so i can have a few decent-looking animations to show him, therefore boosting his confidence in my skills and his chances in saying yes.
But how do I know how much my animations are worth? From Draw with Jazza, i learned that there is something like a business triangle. The triangle is subdivided into three other triangles. One is Time, one is Money, and one is Quality. The way it works is that the buyer can only have two of those triangles.
Ex: They can have time (where the project will be ready sooner) and Money (where the project will be cheap) but they won't have Quality (where the project won't look as good as it could've)
The problem is that i've never done business with my artwork before. I don't know how much money it's worth, how much time it'll take or how good of quality it will be.
The latter two will probably be figured out later on, but i still don't know about the money. Does anyone WITH EXPERIENCE IN THIS BUSINESS have any ideas/suggestions?
