|When you accept a job, how much value do you place on each of the following? Money, creative liberty, visibility, and to work with the best.
All of the above. I had to return to work with a union I still work as hard as a can helping and doing for working people
100% commitment for all of it.
Defineatly creative liberty comes first. And the next important one would be working with the best. I'd say money and visibility are equally important.
however I must say, if the first two are granted and I have to decide between money and visibility, I'd probably choose money.
Honestly, it has to have Pure inspiration (Creative Liberty, then Money. I can help mold my employees to become the best. and I do not need a lot of visibility
creative, liberty, visibility, money,
Good work with good people is my mantra, but I'd be dishonest if I said money doesn't matter. I do a lot of 'free' work for friends and organisations that deserve support and as a result I don't have many 'quality' holidays, the car always needs fixing and some weeks there's not much in the fridge so I try to let my very able business head rule my philanthropic one. Creative Liberty is fairly important but I also crave structure. Visibility is trickier as I like to be discreet in what I do but hate seeing my work banjaxed by others - so I veer from one extreme to another on this.
Money - important
Creative - very important
visability - very important
work with the best - partially important
I would love to answer this question with "money doesn't matter to me". Oh, yeah, and war doesn't exist, world hunger has been abolished, and all puppies have homes.
Wait, this is the real world.
The creative field and ALL creative professions are suffering and have always suffered to be taken seriously. Are they necessary? Can these jobs be done in-house? Can we hire a high-school kid with Photoshop to do the job? Unless money matters, creative jobs will cease to exist. This is our niche in the economy, especially in this recession, and we had better stand up for the work that we believe is worth our time and effort.
So, yes, Money is important. I pay rent, I support others, and I have bills to pay. If I want to continue to be CREATIVE and not be forced to become a sales rep or accountant, money needs to be important.
Other than that, creative liberty is easily the next important thing to me. If I can have a strong say in conceptualization of the end result or at least be involved in theorizing what needs to be done, I will be very motivated to continue to work. As long as I have permission to use the project in my portfolio, visibility shouldn't be a HUGE problem, because with the help of social media marketing, I can create my own visibility.
I don't mind creative restrictions--parameters and frames can often enhance an idea. Money is nice, but if a client is doing something interesting, charitable, or has a cause I believe in, that sweetens the deal. Once you've done the best job you can do, Visibility is out of your control. It might be "out there," but it doesn't mean people will necessarily pay attention. I've had some of the same clients for ten years-- that wouldn't be possible if we didn't like each other a lot.
Money is not so valuable for me, cause with cheap stuff, you also can create one of the best artworks! Visibility is Number #1 for me, when its about art, cause vision is a important thing with colors, styles and emotions in a painting! Its always nice to work with the best, but i don't think that is so necessary for me. The imagination that's is the importants!
I try to stick to an idiom prescribed by Confuscious the Chinese philosopher. It went "Only take on employment if you mean to show your employer the respect needed to fulfill the said task" or similar. I hate time-wasters and peole who lie about their abilities. I always want to do my best and to work with the best. The rest is pedagological.
In this order:
to work with the best, creative liberty, Money and visibility.
I think if you want it bad enough you will climb your way up the ladder in time . I think visibility is the most important thing . Get yourself out there and show them what you can do . Creative liberty for me is will they let me use obscence language or not . Then i saw a clip of Sam Kinision doing his act in London and he couldnt swear . I had seen the bit with the swear words but for this performance he couldnt use them . It taught me alot because if he can do it and still be funny well then Im just being lazy
Money: I don't try to get a well-paid job just because of the money but I usually feel insensed when my work isn't valued enough to be paid properly
Creative liberty: it's factor number 1
Visibility: I don't care much about this - my work speaks or will speak for and by itself
Work with the best: I still haven't found the best ;)
creative liberty 40%
work with the best 20%
but the 2nd and the 4th options are so rare!
