In Topic: Advice for pro composer moving into games

21 September 2013 - 05:47 AM

Hey! 

 

I was also at Game Music Connect...so on the subject of you not playing games for 10 years I heard on multiple occasions their advice was to play games! They all knew each others work and had played games and had to answer questions on what their favourite games were! 

 

But the question is why do you want to write music for video games if you don't play/like them? :)

salaries for composing jobs remained relatively flat at around 53k

 

Is that USD ? :)

Thanks for a great study!

 

Entry to the industry is easier than ever with more positions opening up, but an equivalent glut in amateur composers seeking employment has also made it a little bit harder to climb. Might be interesting to find a study about the average fees of working composers at all tiers. I saw one a couple years ago, but the sample size was 24, so it's basically useless.

From people in the industry the average earning for a small project is 5-20k (GBP) and big projects anything upwards!!! Although it depends whether you are freelance or work under a company like Microsoft/Sony :)
