I wanted to take a poll to find out what percentage of 3D artists and animators are staff artists, and those who are freelancers.

Also, wanted to get a sense of the types of firms most likely to look out of house for a 3D artist..

For example, it's a sure bet that Pixar or ILM would use staff artists, but there might be many other firms whose need for 3D imagery and animation is such that outsourcing to freelancers makes more sense.

I'm not sure about design firms or ad agencies, and whether they're starting to keep 3D people on staff or not.

Thoughts?

Thanks,

J

In the games industry, it seems they're trying to push us into a short term contract situation, I'm lucky in that the firm I'm with is fairly stable, but a lot have gone under.
