Hi lovely mixed.parts people,
You seem smart, so I'd like to ask your advice. I also think my predicament may be shared with others, so your words of wisdom might be helpful for other people too.
About a year and a half ago I decided to start learning After Effects in order to transition away from video editing, and towards mograph work. It's been largely successful, in that I am pretty confident with Ae now, and regularly get booked for motion graphics work. However, my problem is that I seem to only get booked for a certain type of work, and a certain type of clients, namely relatively simple, basic stuff for PR agencies and start-ups.
My question is, how do I shift my client base and find more creative work? How should I go about trying to find work with more creative design studios, mograph houses or ad agencies?
For context, here's a WIP reel (feedback welcome btw) to show you the general direction I'd like my work to head in:
Many thanks for your time. Cheers!
