Hi all,

I started a production company in Athens, GA a few years ago. I used to work on a lot of commercials, but have really focused on the music industry the last year or so. It has been fun and good experience, but terrible money. There aren't many opportunities in Athens anymore, so in addition to feedback on my reel I'm REALLY hoping for some advice as to where I should move to NY or LA. I have contacts in both cities, but I'm wondering which is more sensible for someone with the type of reel that I have.

reel is at http://www.eikonic.c...s/demo_12_5.mov

thanks in advance,
Jason Miller

Or move to Philadelphia and capitalize between NY and DC while saving a lot of money (much cheaper to set up shop in Phila and work out of NYC which is only a 2 hour drive...)

Follow the money trail.

In my experience working with bands that I actually like and have cool ideas, well... they never have money. I do stuff in Austin, but there's no "industry" here, just great bands and talent. Labels have all the money. If you want to do music vids and make any $ I'd think you'd have to go where the labels are.
