Hi Animation Tutorial, I am so thankfull u have posted this .. I have recently finished my BFA from Academy of Art University in VFX and will apply for vfx compositor job. Please I really need to know , that whether these salaries are for fresher compositors and what can a guy with 2-3 experience can expect in terms of salary I mean how much salary can one expect after 3-4 years of experince in this field , becuase considering the amount of money I have spent on education , these salaries seems very low when compared to what people earn after doing professional courses like Btech and MCA ,MBA etc. Please calrify and reply soon
thank u so much once again
If you are a fresher, studio hire you as a trainee artist. They will make you work on certain project and they will see your work , your skills , attitude , How you work in a team and your temperament and ability to handle pressure. They will observe you for 3-6 months and if your work is good you will be given a permanent job along with the increment. The quality of work is very important in this field. I have few friends who started with mere 8000 pm salary and now earning well above 50,000 within a year…
sure..we will cover that too….leave your email ID and we will notify you when we add an article.
if i am getting this correctly …you mean to say that within a years time they got salary raised above 50,000 from the starting 8000 ??? if yes may i knw which company do they work in ?
YEs….but that totally depends on quality of work
Yep Suveen.. you figured right.. That’s complete bullocks.. Indian studios have “never” given a 500% raise in the first year..
If one of these fortunate people did get that raise, its one in a million.. So lets not misguide new students and let them know the truth..
Its more like a 30-40k after 3-4 years of experience, if you are above average.. Unless, you can suck up well, then maybe 50-60k..
I so agree with Ash….There are big production house and then there are studios with 8-10 employees. These studio prefer Jack of all trades. If you have multiple skills you will earn 50k within 18 months
