I feel stupid asking this question but I've been aproached by someone that wants me for a project. The problem is that I work for a company and I have amontly salary. What is the average rate for this kind of situation? Does anyone know?
It greatly depends on talent, experience, gear, requirements, and what market you are in. I'd say the natl average for a freelance AE artist is $50/hr, if that helps as a reference point. Most animation houses are just over 100 an hour.
