I am the Project Manager for a Video Game and we are in need of some more modelers.
This would be an "on spec" project, meaning, that when we get paid, so will you. However, since we do not have the capital in hand I am terming this an UNPAID project.
We chose Blender for a few reasons, but one of the largest two are:
1 - It's free.
2 - To prove that an open source utility can be used to create an awesome game. (Probably more than one)
