A study by PricewaterhouseCoopers last year found the New Zealand screen industry had a significant economic impact. It found that in 2008:

22,000 jobs were created

$2.5 billion was contributed to the New Zealand economy.

$63,000 average salaries generated. In the post-production area, the figure was $91,000. The 2008 national average salary was $39,000.

$133,000: the average direct value added per employee in the film and television sector.

Invaluable: raised international awareness of the New Zealand "brand", which the report said boosts tourism, heightens positive perceptions of New Zealand products and contributes to an enhanced sense of national identity.


In 2010:

Production as a whole is down 8% from 2008

Post Production is up by 21%

Auckland’s revenue for feature films declined in 2008/9 by 42 % to $220 million

Feature films produced by Wellington businesses earned two-thirds of the revenue for feature film production. In the Wellington region, revenue for this subsector grew by 70 percent to $429 million

$2.873 Million was contributed to the economy from the screen industry in 2010
