6 It’s hard out there for a temp
Breaking into animation is often like dating someone with a fear of commitment. Your first few gigs might feel uncomfortably impermanent, and that’s likely because the studio is still unsure about the financial viability of investing in a long-term relationship with you. This happens to almost everyone. Don’t let it mess with your head. Make the most of every opportunity to prove that you’re an indispensable asset and a worthy addition to the A-Team. I found Linchpin by Seth Godin ( www.sethgodin.com) a great read for learning how to become indispensable.
