THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING BUDGET
Does it feel like your project budgets and timelines just keep getting smaller and smaller? You are not alone! This presentation focuses on the pros & cons of the high volume, low budget trend in advertising and the impact it is having on production. The key takeaways include:
A two-pronged approach to budget and timeline restrictions.
The difference between specializing and generalizing your creative abilities.
The creative process used by the design and animation teams at top-tier studios.
How to retain your passion along your career path.
Plus a cautionary tale of overly accommodating a client’s needs that you won’t soon forget. Yikes.
