1. Reposition yourself creatively
It’s no secret that 2020 isn’t going as planned. For some of you, the unprecedented events of this year may have drastically impacted your professional life. Now is the perfect time to professionally pivot to meet the moment. Did we mention stop motion can easily be created at home?
No matter which industry you work in, the ability to create a unique stop motion animation is a skill that sets you apart from everyone else. Whether you’re a photographer looking to add a little pizazz to your standard services, or you’re WFH in a more analytical career and thinking about dabbling in something creative on the side, stop motion will elevate any resume.
2. Motion performs better
Video generates WAY more engagement than any other content type on Instagram. See for yourself here. This makes it an easy to entice clients trying out social ads.
3. Level up your income
Stop Motion is a premium product in high demand – with a limited pool of talent. The best part? It’s not actually that time consuming to create. You can make more money in less time, and have fun doing it. Isn’t that the dream?
Most clients and employers don’t even realize they’re looking for eye-catching stop motion until they see it in a portfolio, so it’s the easiest up-sell ever – without you even trying! (And shhh… not many other people are doing it, let alone doing it well).
4. Keep your audiences engaged
We all know we’re not supposed to judge books by their covers, but no one ever said anything about social media accounts. Even though we know our social pages are full of interesting, carefully crafted content designed to engage, educate, and entertain our viewers… this unfortunately means nothing if we can’t instantly grab their attention. Stop motion animations are attention-grabbers. This is why clients are willing to pay big bucks for content showing off their product in a fun, engaging way.
5. Challenge your imagination
Excuse me for stating the obvious, but… stop motion animations are fun!
Working on the same types of projects day in and day out can (as you know) become extremely boring, and contribute greatly to burnout. Adding stop motion to your routine will push your creative limits and test your imagination.
