Just as a matter of interest, I thought I’d go and count how many compositors are needed on a few few films.
First I started with a couple of Blockbusters because pretty well every big budget film needs its compositors considering how vital green screen is these days.
Rogue One: 183
Beauty & the Beast: 107
That’s a hell of a lot. Next, to keep my relevance, I thought I’d check how many there were on some big 2D animation productions. There weren’t an awful lot, but nearly every one I looked at had one.
The Illusionist: 12
Ethel & Ernest: 7
Long Way North: 2
April and the Extraordinary World: 1
The Red Turtle: 0
