So how does one get freelancing gigs with studios? Do you just send your portfolio and CV to various studios and ask if they need freelance work done or you git gud and wait for them to contact you? Asking for a friend lol
send your CV+portfolio everywhere, literally everywhere
Reply to vacancies. That is all. Also, some studios do remote desktop work instead of freelancing. You're remotely working on their PC, you have to connect to that PC every day and punch in your 8 hours. Basically exactly like working in the office, just without an office. That's my current job, it's not a bad deal, you get a steady income.
