    I'd try to work for the studio's as long as possible. Unless you do some market research and see a big potential clientele for the trailer work. Otherwise, if it dries up after these three jobs, you're unemployed...




    So uh, can you hook me up with a part in a movie? :D :D

    i voted all three.

    im always about a drink though....

    stay doing the studio work. try to work the fabrication into your studio work though. lots of custom things needed in that field. show some people your work and try to get a higher paying job doing what you enjoy on the side or full time. its hard to get going on your own in todays world. you might be able to keep doing it as a hobby or second job. doing the trailers that way means you can take a break when you WANT/NEED one. then just relax a bit and babysit some stunt wo/men. or whoever.

    being able to take a break when you want is the best. especialy if the money isnt needed.

    Stick with the studio work, until you go a hell of a long time with no breaks in custom work- otherwise, as said, it could dry up. Plus the work of actually running a business doesn't add up to an easy ride!

    I agree. Until the trailer thing becomes more profitable than the studio work - stick with the steady work.
