Employment in the film and video production and post-production services industry, by role, 2002/03 and 2006/07

Next update to be advised


According to the 2006/07 Australian Bureau of Statistics Service Industry Survey, the largest proportion of people in the film and video production and post-production services industry were employed as on-set production staff (41.4 per cent or 5,726 people); 46 were non-residents.

Managerial/administrative/clerical staff made up 29.3 per cent or 4,059 people; 17 were non-residents. Off-set staff, including pre- and post-production staff, made up 21.7 per cent or 3,006 people. There were 673 animation and visual effects technicians. The number of non-residents among them was not published by the ABS; however, non-residents employed in the entire industry was less than 1 per cent (87 people).

Comparisons between years are difficult due to changes in the survey’s scope and methodology. In 2006/07, the ABS included people in significant non-employing businesses for the first time, changed the way it classified occupational roles, provided details of residential status but no longer measured roles by gender.
