    Jojo's work is of a high quality, he illustrates in detail and has a great deal of creative talent. I can definitely see that he has a lot of experience in illustrating and animating, bringing people's ideas to life. However experience in animating and illustrating alone isn't good enough when working as a freelancer. You also need initiative, client relation skills, solid communication and the ability to offer the client things he or she may not be aware of if he or she isn't in the illustrating or animating business themselves. Such things as pointing out where they can save money or where big problems will arise with regards to their requirements. Where Jojo fell short for me was on several big factors. One of the biggest was with regards to verbal and written English. His communication and comprehension of the English language which is imperative when concerning work with a native speaker and on a large project was average at best. Being a native English speaker who lives and works in the far east I have some idea of what it takes for a non native speaker to have the standard of English necessary to work with companies whose main language is English - not many people achieve this. Jojo does not have the ability to speak to and communicate effectively in English to be able to work on a detailed level of an animation project for an English speaking company and fails to understand the subtle meanings behind every day English. Therefore when given a task as big as the one I hired him for, he was overwhelmed with the general communication he received from myself and some of the simple language used in the story boards I gave him. Indeed on the first animation (and last he was to attempt) he missed out important details noted on the story boards of the animation and need prompting regarding this. Jojo was not able to respond to my messages in any sort of detail which I wished and this became frustrating as problems arose with regards to finishing the first animation on time. Also having 20 years in animation I thought Jojo would have been able to provide me with a reasonably accurate deadline on finishing the first animation I gave him a full story board for. Instead he was reluctant to give me one which I was surprised with. Insisting on first finishing the animation and thus stacking up too many hours in attempting to do so he failed in one of the most important roles of a freelancer - giving the contract company a good idea of how long a piece of work would take. I cancelled the animation and project with him due to several big issues I will now summarise: > Inability to give an accurate estimate on time taken to complete an animation > Inability to communicate important variables within animation that would cost a client substantially more money > Lack of initiative in prompting a client to consider using more effective methods within animation until it was too late > Lack of understanding of the finer points of English which could prove detrimental to your project > Lack of fluency in spoken English, his English is reasonable but in my opinion not good enough when dealing with highly detailed animation projects and wishing to speak over voice chats like Skype. If I was looking for a quick, cheap and simple animation or illustration I would definitely consider Jojo again However if I am looking for an independent contractor who is easy to communicate with, can be relied on to understand detailed instructions, or someone who can provide practical input into avoiding time consuming and difficult animations I will seek such help elsewhere.
    Freelancer's Response
    Client weekly hour limit and budget are not sufficient based on their storyboard and animation instructions and requirements. Especially for three characters with two humans and one dog with walking actions scene which is very time consuming to animate. He is not awared that the storyboard they made required lots of actions, walking back and forth movements. The client deadline is unreasonable. For my point of view as a traditional animator, If i push through it, the quality of animation will suffer which is my main concerned. For the past six years working on odesk as a freelance animator. I've done my task honestly and logged in my time accordingly based on odesk policy. My work history from my previous clients that trusted me to worked on their past projects are speak for itself for my honesty and dedication for my work.
