In Topic: When someone copies your work?

05 April 2016 - 10:54 AM

So far I have found out about two projects of mine being replicated ... They weren't to the same level so I am fine with it .. I think the original piece will always be more relevant rather than forced .. for example the FITC ripoff you posted seems out of context when used the way it was while it seemed more natural and relevant when Ash did it

I think it's good to see other's trying to copy your work , it gives you an idea of how influencial your work is and is satisfying in an egotistical kind of way , Credits could be great but I don't force anyone to credit me .. Some people ask me for permission to do case studies of some of my older work .. that is great too 

I myself try and always reference the original reference in the description but I never end up replicating it anyway and I was never put in a situation that merited that ... The end file is usually 70-80 % off the original source material

anyway my research method is getting refined now and it's more about fusion and trying to be more mindful about what I use .. I try and adapt what I use to what I am looking for .. if it doesn't work I don't use it just because it looks good

On Vimeo I try and leave links in the comments if I find someone is not crediting people properly but not really much more I would do

In Topic: Car Rigging

There was an old youtube series I think that broke car rigging down .. I think you need to simplify your rig and use some sort of low detail proxy for the dynamics and then link everything in

In Topic: Recommend a film

Like Zickar's list a lot, A series of misfortunate events - reminds me a bit of Hugo.


Also watched recently

Wild Bill (uk film)


The Big short

​The hateful eight 

Glad you liked these .. what did you think of the big short ? I liked it in a very weird way .. it left a very strong after taste although I didn't enjoy it to start with but it drove me to read a lot about the financial crisis and eventually made me more educated about the subject


Also Kung Fu Panda has some awesome visuals , definitely worth watching too

In Topic: Are you undercharging?

31 March 2016 - 01:14 PM

Awesome insight dude

Totally agree , I just tried this today .. The client asked me straight out of the bat what I will charge with this , I went with my gut and thought of the highest realistic number I could think of and then just added more to it .. It might still be lower than what others might charge but it's roughly 2x what I used to charge and this is a recurring client so I wanted to do this a bit gradually 

Question though .. do you negotiate your rates ? and how far do you go ? I have been given a price a but lower than what I am asking but still refused it .. I explained why I priced it that way .. I added in the costs of online rendering , the time I will be spending after my full-time job and thus no sleep as well as possible weekends and the rushed nature of the project

Client was more understanding than I though
