Note for freelancers

Many people who work in the screen industry work in different capacities, especially freelancers, who may have multiple sources of employment, including working as a contractor on someone else's project, producing your own project, or teaching as an employee of an institution. If this decribes your circumstances, please complete the survey from the perspective of your preferred role,regardless of which role provides you with the most income.
