(e.g. 6 years as a Lighting Artist) How many years experience working in the visual effects industry do you have? (i.e. 12 years in VFX) Where are you working? - NOTE: A selection of Hub Cities are listed at the top of this list, it's preferable to select one of these if it applies to you. What currency do you want to use for filling out this form? What type of employment contract do you have? How long, in months, have you been employed in your current job? (i.e. the number of months working for your current employer - this tour only if you've worked somewhere before) What payment cycle should we use to calculate your rate? Please specify how much you charge per payment cycle, not including overtime? How much overtime do you work, on average, per week? Do you get paid overtime? Paid OT: How many hours does your employer consider a standard working week, before overtime is calculated? Paid OT: What is your overtime rate, per hour, as a multiple of your normal pay? (For example, if you earn your normal rate or time off then put 1 below. If you get 2x normal wage for OT put 2. If your rate is on some kind of scale, then put in the most common rate you charge) What percentage of your income would you attribute to Over Time pay? (example: If 1/4 of your total take home pay is from OT then enter 25) Approximately how many weeks of the year do you actually charge for? (i.e. 52 for full time employees, if you only work half the year enter 26) What percentage of tax would you pay on your earnings over the course of a single financial year? (e.g. if you pay 35% tax, enter 35) Which of the following benefits, if any, do you receive from your employer? What is the total value of benefits you receive in the average financial year? Do you support movements to unionise the VFX workforce? Are you happy with the hours you are required to work in VFX? Do you like your career? Do you like the city or hub you're working in? How do you feel about over time? What advice would you give to people looking to get into a role like yours in the visual effects industry? Please estimate what you think your total income is for a financial year, before tax (e.g. 124000 for $124,000/year before tax) please include OT but not benefits. How can we improve the survey? What is the highest level of education you have completed? Option
