Not sure what to do...

I'm thinking I'd like to offer myself for fandomaid but I'm not sure how to do "buy it now" for vids. Have any of you offered vids? Maybe it could be 3 x 30sec- 1min vids? Does that work? Or just one vid..but at what price? Ack! I wanna help and I like making vids for other people but maybe it doesn't work so well in "buy it now" style. (I'm not sure I could commit to 3 full length vids - even though I'd like to).

I don't know but however you do it - I will happily donate to get a vid from you. And I don't mind how long it takes either....because donating is important and I'd do it anyway but now I can get an Ash48 vid out of it!

Thanks sweetie! I'm just trying to get my head around how I'll do it. A while back I offered to make 15sec "that vid you once made" type thing (I think yours was the only one I ended up doing) -hmmm…. maybe something like that…

There is a vid offer here

Wow..$1! Glad to see her bidder donated some more..;)

Thanks for the link.

I totally understand where you're coming from-I definitely wanted to offer something, but Buy It Now and vids can be overwhelming for the vidder sometimes. I ended up offering icons-no one has bought any, which is sad, but I feel good knowing I'm trying-and I'm filling a friend's request in the request thread so I'm helping a little at least.

It's awesome of you to want to help hon *hugs*

Thanks for mentioning your icon offer – I'll go put a bid on it. I've been using the same icon the entire time I've been in the fandom and could definitely use more!

You are so awesome! Thanks so much!

What?! But your icons are gorgeous!

I would like to offer gifs (that'd be less time consuming and I could offer more) but my gifs aren't very good (and that's not false modesty…compared to the artistic stuff people do with gifs (and icons!) I can't even compare…;/).

You are so sweet hon, that means a lot <3 I think gifs would be awesome to offer!

I love your icons, bb. <3

Thank you so much hon, that really means a lot <3

I think a lot of people are way underpricing. That's nice on one hand since it lets people without much money claim things, but the point is to raise funds, not to give fanworks away!

It's reeeelllly difficult to set a price. With the auctions you end up making one thing to the highest bidder. In some ways that's good because they set the price and you and up making one thing (in my case a vid). With this you have to set a price on yourself which is REALLY awkward. You have to gage what you think someone would donate for you to make them something. If you put a high price (because you want the most you can get for the charity) you look like you have tickets on yourself.

Vidding takes a lot of time so I'd just set a fair price - I'd have thought either saying a flat price of $30(?) or maybe say $15 per minute and set a max length?

And as for numbers - just say what you think your could get done and say what kind of timescale suits you - I've seen lots of authors and artist saying they won't be able to deliver until next year. It's fine to say that up front then if people want something quick they won't buy!

Thanks hun. I know my timescale would have to be next year. I have never defaulted on a auction vid so I'm good for it, but yeah, too much going on for anything to be done this year. Thanks for the ideas! I think I'm formulating an idea…xox

I like the idea of offering up 30 second vidlets. It seems like that would take the pressure off of making a FULL SCALE SRS BSNS vid and also let you offer more of them and/or offer for less $$ (but I'd still ask for a minimum of $20 or $30 apiece. You and I both know how long it takes to put together a good 30 seconds on the timeline!!)

14th-Nov-2013 03:30 pm (UTC)
Thank you sweetie! I like this idea. My dilemma was how to offer more than 1 vid but not have to make them full scale productions (they take so damn long - as you know!). If I can get away with 30sec violets then I might go for it...

Offer gifs instead? They are more appropriately sized for this kind of option I think.

I'll buy gifs!

I would offer gifs if I thought I could make them artistic - though maybe a gif set based on an idea or theme would be the go...
