Work History & Feedback

Looking for a good animator to help us with a project

Fixed Price $200
“Patrick is a very skilled illustrator and animator. He met the first milestone - which was developing the character designs and storyboard for the animation. All was well, however then his spouse caught a cold and fell ill. He said he needed to spend more time with her and so our agreement was that he only needed to send a short note every night to let me know how things were going with the project. He agreed, and did so for one or two nights. Then, he fell off the radar. Every day I would write to enquire, and I would try to reach him via Skype as well - but to no avail. There was no response. All I wanted was some signal from him to let me know if he was still able to meet the deadline. The work he was doing for me was part of a bigger program of work I was completing for a client. And so, I had to get an extension from the client and when I informed Patrick that there was an extension, only then did he reply to let me know that he will get things done by the new deadline. I was hopeful, however, he once again fell off the radar. He wrote one short note saying that he already told me that he would deliver on the agreed date, so I left it at that. However, the deadline came and went, and there was still no word from Patrick.That is when I had to contact oDesk support to seek their assistance to contact Patrick (raised ticket #4111883). After some initial investigation, Joe from oDesk said that he will contact Patrick and get back to me. Within an hour, I received a short, curt message from Patrick saying that he won't be able to deliver the animation because his computer died on him the night before, and he had lost everything. He then sent me an unfinished FLA file with the intiial character designs he had done with the backgrounds for the first few seconds of the animation. He apologised and said that he would refund the money I had paid him for the first milestone.In any case, this caused great distress because I was now unable to meet my client's already extended deadline. Had Patrick raised the flag earlier to let me know that there was a risk - and that he may not be able to deliver on time, I would have at least made other arrangements. Long story short - my client was very upset that I couldn't deliver the final product as promised, I had to find another animator on very short notice at a very high price, and to top it all off - when I contacted Patrick the following week to see if he could initiate the refund he had promised - he replied that he had changed his mind about that and that he decided not to give me a refund.Fair enough - he had completed the initial work - so I decided not to pursue it further. In any case, to summarise, Patrick is a great animator and illustrator - no doubt. I just wish that he had just sent me a one line email, early, to let me know that there were issues and that there was a possibility that he could not deliver as promised. It would have saved us all a lot of trouble and pain.”

“In the beginning, he did a nice animation. Still, communication was really not that good. A second animation, I had to wait a long time for. Freelancer had a good excuse and so I thought that's fair enough, but after that he came up with a totally different animation than asked. It was rushed and not at all what I asked for (and had examples of). Still, I think he is better than average here on odesk, he just needs to get his priorities straight.”
