I don't have a large budget but I would appreciate boosts in order to get advice from others who have done commissions before or to get visibility and/or get recommendations for people present on the Fediverse who also produce music and/or digital art and also accept commissions and/or license deals.
I am not trying to start a bidding war, nor solicit a "come to me with a proposal", etc. I don't want to waste other peoples' energy & time.
I just have no contacts and no network to even begin looking in.
I haven't done commissioned pieces before (I usually do paid mix work for people), but I'm sure we could work something out that's reasonable.
@cj Typically I think for commissioned stuff, must composers charge per minute of finished audio. That way, you don't end up getting quoted an estimate and then getting sticker shock when they finish and say it took twice as long as they thought it would.
@Miredly Thanks for providing a link to your work, and I didn't know about the per-minute of finished audio rate! Both are very helpful.
@cj Lee Jackson isn't on the Fediverse but he's got a blog and might be delighted to offer persepctive from a professional's perspective if you reached out to him. He does instrumental soundtracks for games mostly but is really nice!
@cj yep! Tell him I sent you :)
@eleanorkonik Thank you, I did!
@eleanorkonik Wanted to circle back to this: Mr. Jackson responded and was a huge help!
Thank you for the great contact, he is very nice.
@cj oh good! I'm so happy it worked out :)
