How much does a visual effects artist make annually?

$550 to $900 a week for normal American television vfx but if your company is able to buck a big budget film in Hollywood then it depends. I work in paramount ltd and I got $6000 a week for "X-men origin wolverine" vfx being a asst. animator and it took us 7 months to do so I made a lot of money BUT the VFX level is also very high and tiring.
