It's been a fun few months to be an animator. I haven't had any big 3D jobs so I've been helping a incorporating money with paper work to pay my bills. But finally I get two 3D contracts, one paid with a big company and one unpaid for a friend that would lead to future paid projects.
The unpaid friend project stopped communicating about it around the exact same time he got engaged. I get how that's a big deal and all, but it wouldn't be that hard to say "I want that part rounded" or other tips so I can capture his design perfectly. Oh well, unpaid so no skin off my back, and it's always there to come back too.
The paid one, that's another story. They asked me for a price range and time frame for a project, I got it them the very next day. They were super excited...then they vanished off the face of the earth for two weeks. No email or phone call could reach them. Finally I heard from them and it seem to be working out, so no complaints.
In the end it's all good, but seriously, communication people. It takes ten minutes of your time and saves everyone trouble.
