I'm looking for the 'jack of all trades... a master of some" - or none.
Ideally you are curious about all types of creative multimedia. You do some photoshop and illustrator work but you also have dipped your foot in afteraffects and premiere. You've played around with 3d animation from character creation to rigging to the actual animation. You have dabbled in sound engineering....
You don't have to be an expert in any of them... the broader your knowledge base the more useful you are in this role.
and... you need to be frugal :D - or at least understand my need for it.
Let me explain:
There are MANY talented multimedia individuals here, graphic designers, sound engineers, animators. Some have AMAZING skills and have, understandably, high hourly rates. Others may not be that skilled but will work very cheaply.
Also, people's skill varies. The person who is really good at banner ads may not be great at UX design. Or maybe their UX design is great and their infographics are okay but not as good as someone else's.
I need someone who can piece together the best teams for the best costs to fit my projects. I describe the animated video series we want to do and you figure out which parts are very time consuming and can be done by people who will be willing to work for cheap. You separate the parts that require someone with a lot of skill and can recommend who can do that part.
I give you a budget for a whole project and you find the right pieces to fit in that budget. You'll also know how long certain tasks take and can manage the contractors for that.
Additionally you'll know how to get the best quality as well as the best deal. So if one graphic designer is best for info-graphics you'll know to go to them, if another is best for UX you'll go to them, etc.
You should have a passion for creativity and the ability to manage.
Please answer the specific questions below as well as this important question: Tell me about your experience managing teams or individuals.
