The Croner Animation and Visual Effects Survey is the benchmark compensation survey of the animation and visual effects industry. The Croner Survey provides up-to-date competitive compensation information about positions in companies that produce animated feature films or develop animation and/or visual effects for feature films, television, software games, digital and streamed entertainment.
In 2022, the results include data for 99 unique jobs in the U.S. from 18 companies and 34 unique jobs in Canada.
These companies use the Survey data to understand current market trends and salary differentials to benchmark compensation; establish job architecture, rational pay levels and pay structures; and make informed decisions about bonus plans and equity plans. The results include comprehensive data for animation salaries and visual effects salaries.
