I am 17 and I want to get started in freelancing. For me it doesn’t matter at this point how much I earn (i won’t work for free tho), i just want to get my feet on the ground and start building confidence.
My skills revolve around video compositing (i can edit, key, rotoscope, create 2d motion graphics, do some basic 3d and vfx, color grading and a couple of other things), but I know my way around photoshop and similar apps (i am not a designer by any means).
However I got into that by editing video games, in which field I have developed some remarkable skills and got introduced to various concepts used in real projects, but I am not comfortable that I can fully apply. So what I would like to do is get practice in real projects with relatively low pressure so I can adapt before I move on to more serious work.
Fiverr and generally the freelancing community is generally a very competitive one and I’ve heard stories of people not getting a single job for 6 months. All I want to do right now is work, I do not care about the platform, could anyone help me with that?
