Screen industry jobs fall

Screen industry jobs fall – Media Release

More than 14,000 people worked in the screen industry in 2014, down 1,300 on the 2013 year, figures from linked employer-employee data show.

Infographic, the screen industry: 2014.

In 2014, 14,200 people were employed by the screen industry. They worked a total of 25,400 jobs.

“People in the screen industry often work multiple jobs throughout the year – both within the screen industry and in other industries,” Ms Growden said. “One person may work as an actor, a screenwriter, and a nurse all in one year.”

In 2013, 15,500 people were employed in the screen industry.

The total wages earned fell from $742 million in 2013 to $710 million in 2014.

Two out of three of people that worked in the screen industry in 2014 were aged under 40.
