The Migrant Creative: U.S. Media Freelancers at the Border of a Changing Work Culture features eleven distinctively creative individuals, involved with media making, who have been traversing a freelance career path for 15+ years. The rest of the workforce is now catching up to the media worker who has had a longer history than most collaborating and co-creating on a per-project basis (e.g. film production, advertising, etc.).  This is the story about those creative individuals traversing the new work frontier. Freelancers, rather than being marginalized, are now being institutionalized within the business structure.

As the job market morphs into a new model free of perks, offices, insurance or the promise of a steady paycheck, The Migrant Creative examines how freelancers are navigating this shifting workforce culture.
