Are you part of the team of design tutors who work with us or maybe you’re thinking about applying and you’d like some more information before you do? Take a look at some of our frequently asked questions to help you.
1 ) How will I get paid for my courses/tutorials?
We pay for each course or tutorial once it’s been received and evaluated by us. The price is set by the Art Director and may vary depending on the length, difficulty and other aspects.
There are no real time limits to our courses and tutorials, so it’s up to you how you structure it. However, the typical length of our tutorials is from 5 minutes to 30 minutes. Our courses are usually longer (approx. 2 hours) and are divided into lessons.
We also have text tutorials that again, vary in length depending on what it is you want to teach.
3) What are our courses/tutorials about? Do I choose my own topics?
Our courses and tutorials are about design, illustration, animation… everything digital art related. Usually you submit your proposal to the Art Director and then he/she will guide you in structuring and creating your tutorial or course.
4) Do I have to send in anything else?
If this is your first time working with us, you have to get registered on tutpad.com and complete your profile by adding a photo and a description on your bio, with links to your social network account.
The project will not be considered complete until of the material has been handed in. In general, with all the projects you have to send in high quality editable files (1280x960px minimum), sketches and artwork, developed throughout the course/tutorial. In the case of an animation or 3D projection, high quality renders separated in layers. We need these files given in correctly to be able to promote your course/tutorial on our social network accounts.
5) What format should I send my courses and tutorials in?
5.1. Text tutorials
We have a new system for our teachers in which you can upload your text based tutorials straight onto our web page. However, you will be asked to send in all of the files to the arts director.
- A .doc or .pdf file of the tutorial, step by step, that has all of the images, as you wish to have them published on the webpage, in said document.
- A folder with all of the captures, with names in order (for example, 01, 02, 03…). All images must have a width of 830 pixels. If one of the steps uses more than one image, put them together in one image with a white background.
5.2. Courses and video-tutorials:
The tutorial must be in an .mp4 file, formatted in H.264 and with a 1920x1080 size. In the case that one of the courses, each of the videos must have the same format.
