2010 Motion Graphic Design Census

Hat tip to Bran Dougherty-Johnson and Jake Sargeant for putting together the 2010 Motion Graphic Design Census. According to the survey a whopping 77% of the respondents are not paid overtime by the companies they work for!

Many motionographers do a lot of commercial work along side many vfx artists. If any group needed a union the most it would be them: They work on very short term projects and move job to job very quickly and misclassification is common. I figure if a makeup artist, editor, or cinematographer can get IATSE representation on a commercial project then why can’t vfx and motion graphic artists do too?

It might be worth contacting IA organizer Jim Goodman for this: vfx@iatse-intl.org

  1. Thanks for the post, VFXLaw! Finding out about OT in our industry was one of the motivating factors behind the survey. We also have a new survey out for US workers now: http://motiongraphicdesigncensus.org/2011/01/2010-motion-graphic-design-census/

    Thanks for all the info here, I’m a regular reader.

    Best,
    Bran

  2. Sorry, just noticed that I called you VFXLaw here. My bad.😉
