I'm going to respectfully disagree with those who say the full-time job is "more secure" than freelancing. Stability at a car dealership?? Are you kidding? When times get even leaner and the co-op ad dollars get smaller, what overhead would be high on the cut list?

When you're the house video guy anywhere, you're overhead. Expendable. Your survival is tied to one company, one boss. Freelancing can be considerably more secure, particularly if you're versatile. You can control your own future. Better to have a handful of customers who love you than a weekly paycheck that could vanish on a whim.

With all due respect to the "grow up and take the job" crowd... Being overhead is not secure. If you don't sell cars or fix them, you are overhead in a car dealership.
