Computer and Video Game Designers

Computer and video games are a fast-growing segment of the U.S. entertainment industry. The Entertainment Software Association reports that sales of computer and video game software reached $14.8 billion in 2012. However, many companies hire animators and artists who work overseas. Studios often save money on animation by using lower paid workers outside of the United States. For the reason, the U.S. Department of Labor estimates that employment of multimedia artists and animators is projected to grow 6 percent from 2012 to 2022, slower than the average for all occupations.
