Logan Preshaw wrote, “I worked on Avatar 2. I’m proud of that. I am not proud of how little Weta Workshop pays its artists.” He added, “As a concept artist I was paid the current minimum wage. A pay cut of $10/h from when I was a lead on animated cartoon shows. Many of the practical artists were paid similarly.”

The member of Avatar 2’s visual effects team further shared, “I worked 10 hours a day for $21 NZD/h, which comes to just over $13 USD. 1 hour was deducted for lunch. When I asked for more pay 8 months in, quoting my previous job’s pay and experience, it was raised to $23. 3 months later I left. This is solely on Workshop. Not James Cameron, 20th Century or the overall production of Avatar 2.”
