Hey AIR team,
How do you confirm a company that approaches you from Europe is legitimate? I have a media company from Turkey asking me to quote some animation for them. They have a website, have given their address (which is an actual address on google maps), and have given phone numbers which I haven't tried yet. I have let them know that if we work together, I'd require 50% up front, 35% midway and 15% before delivery of final elements and they say they're fine with that. Anything else?

I'd also search the name of the company on the internet for any sort of reviews you might be able to find.

Hello! Looking for animators that can work with a production house (so not animation studio but independents) any of you have them on roster? 3D / board is stylized kind of a diorama look. If that makes sense. Basically shoot me reels if you have 3D folks on your roster. If I see something I can share more details. Thanks!
