Don't lose your job because you're frustrated with the jackass who happens to be controlling your situation. There are a few folks out there who have stood up to these people and have paid the price for it. But when one door closes, another opens. Several independents have become and are becoming the competition to the very same studios that blackballed them before because they dared to stand up. Having a healthy attitude in this climate within our industry is important. Don't accept the vision that this is the way it will always be. An empire is going to rise out of the inability of our employers to properly and professionally deal with their own insecurities about our importance in what they do. They will become a victim of their own system. It's a matter of natural selection. You matter, they don't. The future of the animation industry will not have much room to include many non-creative executive and managerial positions, although they may think differently. The entire industry is questioning their
significance to production and there is a definite trend towards weeding out any middle men or women when it comes to animation, especially when this "middle class" scoops as much as 50% or more of the production budget just to prop up their feifdoms. So keep your chin up, keep your job and make some money. Financially secure artists are a threat to them. That's how you can fight.
