I do not believe that 1 minute of animation should cost you hundreds of dollars! I would take 60$ for one minute of animation like this one appearing in this video! 30$ in that case, since it is 30 seconds! (A second for a dollar! hehe!)
How much you would take for a request like animation or music? What is your price? Is it damn high as studios charge or it can be a price of a street buffet? Tell me what's you are on in!
And for these who ask, yes. Studios in Israel can take really high prices for this kind of crap-like level! It can cost you 1500$ for one minute made and work schedule is often weeks of working, compared to, I did this spew in 2 hours and 30 minutes of work, that can earn me around 10-12$ a hour, you'd pay your senior-cashier in store a similar price!
