If you’re asked to work as independent contractor please review the VES Independent contractor guidelines. They also make sure people are not improperly classified as independent contractors or other positions. Afterwards the rumors about a werewolf hunting the people spread. If it was the same rate there’d be no incentive for companies not to work their people 12 hours or more a day. Same holds true for many ‘independent contractors’ a vfx company may hire. Even when these people work the same hours side by side with other employees, they may take home less pay since the other employees may be getting true overtime pay. Some vfx companies try to put as many people on as managers or independent contractors to avoid paying overtime. A wide range of topics are discussed, as well as various special guests involved in both mainstream and independent creative production are invited to join in. Concept art should be fleshed out before production starts to make the most of the shoot and to ensure the budget and time estimates are correct.
What’s really impressive is that the camera can shoot for up to two hours consecutively, which is absolutely astounding for a camera of its size and capabilities. Shooting can go over schedule but it’s based on the director and project and has to be fully approved. There may be a schedule for locked sequences, vfx turnovers, vfx finals, etc but the only true hard date is when the film has to be completed to be printed or duplicated and shipped throughout the world. You never know when opportunities for input may come. If there were 4 vfx companies in town and 3 were officially in the program, then artists would know which company to avoid. This movie was being talked about by everyone I know before I saw it. 3. If you are being asked to work on a flat make sure to calculate the real rate based on real hours you expect to work, not what the company optimistically thinks.
Anytime someone is paid on a flat there’s the incentive from management to get their money’s worth and work them long hours or 6-7 day work weeks. The director and crew have to get so many setups a day in order to keep on schedule. There is a schedule for the number of shooting days and each sequence and set has a given number of days. On one project I worked on, a new sequence had to be designed and the director asked for ideas. Successful vfx start with the initial shot and sequence designs. It takes just as much time and effort to work on a badly designed vfx shot as it does to work on a well designed shot so you might as well do it right. The more time someone with a flat rate works, the less they make per hour. They are on a flat weekly rate which doesn’t change if they work 40 hours or 90 hours.
Animating 1 second can take a couple of hours. A director gets the best take he/she can in the time available and then has to move on to the next shot. I’m suggested to everyone in vfx to keep your creative side alive so as you’re provided opportunities you can take advantage of them. Few regular vfx workers truly fall in this category. “While the D300s isn’t exactly the best performer when it comes to high ISO shots (the honour, for this category of cameras, belongs to Canon’s EOS 7D), the camera does produce decent shots up to ISO3200. The bottom line is that to at least some extent, all 4K cameras, from DSLRs to video production cameras, are capable of both taking photos and shooting video at least to some degree.
