Seriously? Im getting mixed messages people are saying either yes or no, I've met a few people from uni aswell who have ended up in indie places and saying they love it, they just go into work eat pastries and chill all day theres no pressure. The only place I find that they treat you like crap is when the studio has bad management.
>>533117I work at an indie place it's pretty chill for me to be honest, I'm London based and our boss goes to Vegas at least every 2 months, don't believe the scare stories.
>>533117It depends on the place really. It's not all sunshine and rainbows but not every studio is like Nitrogen. Otherwise, there probably wouldn't be much of a workforce left.
>>533117Well of course those ((people)) would treat their animators like crap, it really depends on the size and speed that the studio works at. Studios that need a production within a small time frame will prioritize the work and not the workers.
>>533117It's all about profit now, so a lot of times 3rd parties to the studios get absolutely fucked. I have a friend that edits movie trailers and those people are totally taken advantage of by the studios.They give the job to the lowest bidder. The way it works for trailer editors is that they give footage to 20 trailer editing companies, make them all edit trailers, get the trailers turned into them, and then at the end they'll get bids from them all and see which one they want to pick. So 19 of those companies will do the work, but not get paid or get their trailer used. Then the studios won't pay the winning company for years.Also, think about life of pi. The company that did the effects for that movie, won an oscar for best special effects, which was basically the whole movie, then went out of business because they weren't paid properly.
>>533349R&H got fucked hard. I was at a resume review workshop at a conference a couple of years ago and one of the guys doing the reviewing there was from R&H, pretty sad
