VFX and Animation by some Numbers

If you’ve ever wondered how big the VFX and Animation industry is – this might give you some idea – and I have no idea how accurate this is.

I searched Linkedin for the most visible studios in the industry and recorded down how many employees were listed for each studio. Keep in mind a few things…

  • This only includes employees who are on Linkedin.
  • Relies on people entering the correct name of their employer and/or keeping their information up-to-date.
  • If your wondering why Lucasfilm is on there – lot’s of ILM people put it down as their employer (it technically is I guess). Impossible to know how much of those are ILM people versus other Lucas companies.
