    What do animators make yearly in the states?

    I wasn't sure if this was the right thread for such a question, but I am leaving in two months to the school of communication arts to begin my major, which is digital animation. I realized the other day that I have no idea how much a digital animator makes, I would imagine that the range is very very big... seeing as how I can work for a company like pixar and make movies as big as shrek, or I can work for a small indie game company and make little to nothing, but anyone know the average income? My guess is 35-50k a year.

    even as a junior it depends on :

    - What industry you work in
    - 2D or 3D
    - What soft you're specialised in (if 3D)
    - Where you work (ex: SanFran vs EdgeoftheWorld)
    - How you sell yourself
    - etc.
