@snavenave said: Yeah, working over the internet may be the way to do it, BUT, the jobs are still in LA. So "getting" the jobs, and "working on them" become two seperate things.
And if you aren't here, than those who are, are really talented at hussling them away from you. There's a lot of incentive in "going local".
Anyway, there still are a few jobs here and there outside of LA, but not enough to accelerate a career.
Of course I don't disagree with what you're saying and that's why I said it's still an advantage to live in LA but the point was that internet revolutionized our way of communicating and so once you have established a solid contact in LA or NY they know you can be as efficient or more than the guy living in LA, today everybody all over the world has access to the same technology, VSL is an example, this website is an example, then if your good it's by word of mouth, but of course getting that initial contact whether it's through luck or hard work is more challenging when you're outside the area and on that side I agree with Evan or Nave [;)]. Today's communication ways have become so ridiculous, I bet people in LA use their cell to talk from the front to the back seat of a car, and sending mp3s or quicktimes between continents takes nearly the same time! Today everybody is surfing on the internet, so the point is, it's catching up to "being there".
