I'm completely new to forums and threads and so on so please forgive me if I seem a bit slow on here.
I'm 22 and just finished university, I am now currently work for a small media company but I want to do freelance work as well as a visual effects artist (3D & 2D compositing), motion graphics and editor. I think I'm pretty good at it and feel confident in myself to provide these skills for companies. The trouble is I don't know how to set prices out; do I need to have fixed prices e.g. £10 per hour for editing or do I wait for the job to be outlined and then provide a cost.
I recently called a company who had seen my work and they were interested in my services but they asked me to send over a list of prices...Without being taken for a ride by this company, what do I do?
