I am getting into motion graphics, video editing, some 2d and 3d, compositing (the whole vfx pack). I am getting good at handling the software I am using, and have completed a bunch of tutorials and mini courses (freebies). I want to get into more serious projects and particularly to work as a freelancer, creating 2d intros for people, editing templates, 2d motion graphics for channels or plain video editing.
The problem is I am not a particularly creative individual. I can't seem to have any good sources of inspiration and don't have lots of great ideas. This is why I favor compositing, cause i get to put things together that are made by other people. I enjoy every part of creating and editing, but i don't seem to create a whole bunch. Getting into the business of logo/banner design honestly scares me a bit. But its something I wanna slowly get into, so i would appreciate any advice.
For those of you who have worked professionally, how did you deal with the pressure when you first started? Although I think I am sufficiently trained, I feel as though I am totally unprepared for a real world paid job and that I'll fail a customer. What level of skills is required to work at a platform like upwork of fiverr or something like that? Thanks.
