    Hello there,


    I want to start an animated video production company for businesses, with explain video's and stuff. So I just finished my website, cellphone number, sales copy etc.


    Basically the last thing I need now is a video for on my website. So I made a storyboard, a script, just bought a voice-over on fiverr. But now I need an animator and that's where I'm having difficulties.


    In my storybord I want some 2D (or 3D) guy doing things like pointing, sitting behind a desk, screaming, being on a cellphone etc. Also I want random object like a brain, statistics and explosions.


    What is are strategies I can use for this? My budget (and last money, but I live by my parents so I will not die :p) is around $100 dollar, but the less I can spend the better. But I also need some quality to inscrease my chances in making sales ofcourse.


    So I was thinking about getting a template from videohive and find some freelancer on Elance that can work with it, but I don't know wich template I need to buy.. Or if there are template at all that are extensive enough for my video.

    Btw the video and the products I gonna produce need to be in Dutch, while the cheap freelancers are to find in English. Maybe someone has some tips on that as well.

    So all advice is welcome :)


    Thanx!

    You can contact some artists from fiver telling them about your needs.
    Maybe there is some guy there who can produce high quality content for your prices.
    I mean there are so many artists on freelance sites who lack of orders but are able to create good staff. You just need to make a research.

    I only have one piece of advice for you:

    - Test your Ability to Get Good Customers Consistently : if you can do this, finding the talent will be the easy part. You should note that in the early 90's companies were paying upwards of $50k for a website, today better websites are free. With so many easy to use animation softwares available for cheap price, I don't see the long term upside. In order to make money in this area, you literally have to be revolutionary -think GoPro Style 3D Videos for Oculus.

    Hello.
    I have a solution for you.
    Yes, you should buy a template on videohive. but I would suggest you to buy one of the "kit" templates. that consist of multiple elements and scene and character builders which will allow you to build a video that is unique and with little effort. One of such tempaltes is Pixity land. or isometric explainer kit. and some other explainer bundles.
    Also, I could help you with the video creation for a modest price which fits your budget.
    Why? Cause I'm building my portfolio since I am going to start my video creation business. And it's impossible without portfolio.
    Send me a Pm if interested.
