How Much Does Animation Cost Per Second? (Click to see the blog post)

When a client approaches me for animation work, the trickiest part is always negotiating the price. Most individuals interested in freelance animation don’t realize how much time, money, and effort goes into even the simplest of cartoons.

Above, I’ve listed famous examples of animation, along with how much each second cost to create (Budget Adjusted for Inflation / Running Time). Hopefully this can help other animators and potential clients judge pricing more clearly.
