A friend of mine is from London and he moved out to LA. He said that there is nothing going on there (other than the BBC). He shot his short film there (just finished film school) and he had to hire a full professional crew - guys that worked on some big features - simply because there weren't many non union crew guys at all.

But that's just what he told me. I don't know firsthand. I guess it depends on what exactly what you want to do, but as far as opportunities, come out to LA!

England

Are you a director? Film opportunities in england are the same as they are anywhere else for independent filmmakers - you have to create your own opportunities.

However, if you are looking to join a big production as cameraman/DP, the big studios are always producing something over here, and Greater London is probably the place to be, though I should think there's less opportunities than LA (but maybe less competition as well).

Bill: since you don't show your e-mail I'll ask this in this thread:
how did your friend move from London to LA? Since the US have
a very strict immigration policy I'm interesting to know how he
made the move. If you want you can e-mail me at the address
in my signature below.

I've lived 8 years in France. I speak fluent French.

Sure there's lots of stuff going on in Paris... if you're French, and possibly white. It helps to be from a family with connections, too.

Victor, the same could be said anywhere in the world. But when you made your own films, did anyone hassle you for being Asian?
Did they deny you film permits or anything else? Did actors refuse to work for you?

The French are pretty protective (maybe overprotective) of their job market. For all their culture, they tend to be one of the most xenophobic people on earth, almost as bad as the Japanese. But for all their warts, they love and appreciate film like no others.

But like you said, if you have money, they, just like Disney, love you vewy vewy much.

btw, there is a chance I might make it over to Germany to work (doing software stuff for good ol Uncle Sam..). I would like to hook up, even if I have to take a train to Paris. I'll know for sure in March. I've talked to several Germans who would be interested in pooling talents for making an independent feature. I assume the Germans and French are finally getting along?

btw Marcin... you never said where in Europe you are from?
