Quote from: Nayrman on May 17, 2012, 03:57:08 AMI really wouldn't try Southern California or New York guys. They're INSANELY expensive to live in or near, and the job market is horrendous. Are there technically more jobs there to fill? Yes, but there are also ten times the number of applicants in those cities, especially for media work where no one is hiring period, let alone when there are so many people trying to get those jobs.
Quote from: Nayrman on May 23, 2012, 04:04:09 AMWow, a screenwriter? Good intercourse in' luck dude. I'm in video production and there is NOTHING to be found in movies, tv, journalism, nada. You've really just gotta hope someone really high up somewhere takes a liking to you. That's the only way you stand any chance in doing anything in entertainment unfortunately. Too much money tied up into everything to the point that only the insiders get a slice, and the doors are barred shut so no one outside gets in. *glares evilly at Turner and their complete disregard for anyone under the age of 35*And I only somewhat agree with your "it's work, not breezy" assessment. It's not that it's work, it's that no one from our generation is GETTING any work. Somewhere around half of new college graduates (Basically around the 25-26 age or younger) are either unemployed completely or massively under-employed. Hell, the best I can possibly hope for right now is get some very low level "internship" or "temporary" position and live with my parents the next two or three years, and hope that experience transfers over to something some company actually wants. (note, this isn't likely as everything near me wants 5+ years of experience no one can possibly get due to lack of experience! JOY!) The unemployment line may be dwindling but for the most part it's going to the middle aged people who already have a lot of work experience when things were better. I seriously wonder what's going to become of this country 10 years from now when their main workforce is generally under-utilized, under-paid, and completely unable to get off the ground due to a variety of factors. Gonna be oh so fun trying to get a house when you're working more than full time and barely making 25-30k a year. *rolls eyes*
Quote from: RX-78-2 on June 05, 2012, 02:25:06 AMDog Food, we're in the exact same boat. I feel for you. I really want to move to LA too, but I know I'm going to hate the weather. I go to college in Savannah, Georgia (on summer break at the moment) and I hate hot weather.Nayrman, I know the job market is bad in southern California and that it's expensive to live there, but--not that I pay for anything--I already live in an expensive state (NJ), and Savannah is really cheap. I prefer dealing with the high costs, to be honest. As for the entertainment industry, I know how difficult it is to be successful, but I'll just join the military if I fail hard.
Quote from: Misha on June 05, 2012, 09:50:39 PMYou don't want to live in LA. Just sayin'. It's ghetto as hell, the touristy spots are nice, but the rest is pretty trashy. Unless you want to spend ungodly amounts of money to live in Beverly Hills or Calabasas or something. I love cities, but I only go there for a couple days if I want to get away for a while or to go to a concert/club. I like San Diego more. Still kinda ghetto, but it just feels... Brighter, or something. The weather is a little bipolar; sometimes it's sunny and hotter than hell and other days cloudy and freezing balls, but still nice. The fact that Mexico is right next door is awesome too. Or not. Depends on how racist you are, I guess. I happen to love the fact that you can drink and go to any strip club you want in Tijuana with nobody giving a poop. (just don't talk to strangers)
