Job Outlook

Animator & Multi-Media Artist

Most of the growth in this occupation will occur in the movie and video industries. Animators and artists are needed to work on video games, and movie and television special effects. They are also needed to work on 3D animated movies. In addition, growth will occur due to an increasing need for computer graphics in the growing number of mobile technologies.

Competition for jobs will be strong. This is especially true in the movie and video industry. The number of people who apply for openings is usually greater than the number of jobs available.

About 60 percent of animators and multi-media artists are self-employed.

Film & Video Editors


This occupation is attractive to many people because of its perceived glamour. Thus there will be a lot of competition for jobs.  American films are in demand all over the world, so film companies will continue to produce as many films as possible.  In addition, cable television stations are also creating their own movies.  Both of these factors should contribute to a need for film and video editors.
