I got hired to edit a video for a company showing all fun and cool things they’ve done over the year. I do a lot of music videos, which is why they hired me. They wanted it to feel happy and epic, with lots of energy, so they told me to edit it to some house music. I had a blast until I was almost finished and the deadline was less than a day away.
Client: It looks great, but can you make it like this instead? Oh, and we don’t like your animations. Can you make them better, like the one we had last year?
They sent me a link to a Powerpoint presentation, with blurry images and texts that I wasn’t able to read.
I’m not an animator and Powerpoint presentations give me nightmares. I stared at it for half an hour. Then I had some wine.
