What you need to know about

being a
Freelance Animator

One of the biggest benefits of freelance work is the flexibility to set your own schedule and work from anywhere. Freelance animators can often choose when and where they work, which can be especially beneficial for those with families or other commitments.


They have more control over the projects they work on, allowing them to choose those that align with their interests, skills, and goals. They can also negotiate terms, such as project timelines and budgets, with clients.


They can also gain experience working on different productions that have a range of animation styles and techniques. This diversity can lead to the development of new skills and can help to keep work interesting and engaging.


Freelance animators typically have the ability to set their own rates and earn more money than they would as salaried employees. As well as take on multiple projects at once, which can lead to increased earnings.


They are responsible for their own training and professional development, which can help to keep their skills and knowledge up to date. They can also choose to specialize in certain areas of animation, such as character design or rigging, to further develop their expertise.


While there are many benefits to working as a freelance animator, it is important to be aware that it can also come with some challenges, such as the need to manage finances and find consistent work.
