First of all, searching for the right freelancer is not as easy as it sounds. It is a complicated task as you will have to play the role of hiring manager, going through different animators, interviewing them, reviewing their examples, and deciding whether or not they worth it. The guys who say that will make an explainer video for cheap, are usually working on their own and generally are located offshore. In this case, there are delays, language barriers, and time differences. All of these factors, make the communication much more difficult. Also, there is no guarantee that your money is well-invested and safe and that they will remain available until the project is one. Let’s assume that you have found a good worker who claims that he can create an amazing explainer video for you. You’ve decided to move forward with production and make this project done. At a reputable video production company, it takes a whole team of people to create one video. There are project managers, script writers, illustrators, creative directors, animators, sound engineers, voiceover artists, and etc. The freelancer you have found fit one of these roles, he simply cannot be expert in every field. So guess who ends up editing and doing the rest of the work? Well, it is you. You will be stuck with editing the video, changing it, until it sounds properly for you to launch it online. Sometimes, you will have to hire extra people to do this for you and because freelancers are usually animators who might not understand your concept, the creative side of the video is always left up to you.
