Every year since 2016, I’ve administered the largest and most extensive survey of post production professionals in the United States.
IT BEGAN AS A TOOL TO ENABLE PAY TRANSPARENCY,
AND THAT’S STILL THE MOST COMMON USE OF THE DATA, WHICH IS ALL MADE PUBLIC.
This is the most comprehensive resource for data on pay rates, demographic distribution, trends and DEI data for post production professionals across the United States. Surveys are administered annually, allowing the industry to anonymously share a snapshot of who we are, how we work and what we are paid.
If you're wondering how much to get paid for a job, what post production pay rates are in your town, or how much to pay someone to work on your production, the information can be found here.
The survey covers everyone in our industry, from executives, facility owners and hollywood's top colorists, to content creators and PAs. This is for colorists, vfx artists, editors, sound designers and audio mixers, producers, post supervisors, assistants, trainees, interns, technicians and workflow supervisors, DITs and dailies operators, and everyone else working professionally across America.
