So I work for a company in US that helps make well done web videos affordable to small businesses.
We are not a production house, we rather do pre-preproduction and then FCP editing and motion graphics work is done by our network of editors. Since we don't charge much (hence, that is how we make it affordable for small businesses), we use very strict guidelines to our clients, so editors don't have to do endless reviews etc. and can get done with an average 5 minute video (out of 40min raw) in 4 hours or so. For the motion graphics stuff we also try to keep it simple for both sides.
Issue in US I am facing is that there is a lack of good motion graphics people without really outrageous demands (well... they work for big studios, so they are not "hungry"). Some of the more junior folks are just not reliable (apparently concept of agreed-upon deadlines is foreign to them). So I am looking across the pond. We have worked with Asia before, but cultural differences simply make the projects unworkable. We just must work with English-speaking freelancers or it does not work.
So my question: how do I go about finding couple of people in the UK? I am looking for those with 3-5 years of motion graphics stuff.
Either reply to this thread or PM me with your thoughts.
