Where do i begin as a 3D Freelance Animator?

Hi There

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this discussion, please point me the right way if it is.
I am a recent grad student and an opportunity has come up for me to do freelance work. I just don't really know where to start or how to set my guidelines when it comes breaking it down.

Thanks again.

Freelancing is like any other job, in order to be considered, you'll need to have a reel that gets you the job.  You will need to send your reel to studios that actively use remote/freelance animators.  The market is saturated with people, of all skill levels, so timing has a lot too do with it as well.  My recommendation would be to find a full time gig and build relationships while still searching for freelance opportunities, then when you've got yourself a steady stream of work coming from freelance, you can go that route if you so choose.  Starting out as a freelancer will be difficult, unless you're reel is absolutely outstanding.  Post a link here in the personal animation forum and see what people think and build from there.  Good luck to you and your adventures!!!!
