Where do I find VFX artists for fundraising trailer?

Looking for basic space cgi, flying to planets kind of thing for a fundraising trailer. Do VFX artists work on volunteer basis before pre-prod? Or flat fee? Deferred? I've never done sci-fi before so all new to me. Thanks!

Freelance VFX artists usually work on a day rate. Obviously there are many that are full time employees. Rate usually depends on their experience and demand. Most fx houses and agencies have producers on staff who know the right people to hire for the specific job and manage their work flow. A cheap path is to find a gifted student (Otis etc) who aligns with the 2d or 3d look you want.
