Hello Swiss Freaks

Are there some guys from Switzerland out there??? Switzerland is very underdevelopped in making films. It means there is no work for moviemakers. There are 2 ways: working on a tv station, or make your own movies without any budget and support.
T would like to make contact with other swiss guys interessted in moviemaking. If there exist people in CH.

Population of 7,600,000 & 3 main languages is the main issue. It's not even as through the Germans can understand Swiss German, so the audience is tiny. Because there are so many rich kids who can work for nothing & supply a Red One, is it surprising there is no real business as it's just a hobby to most.

Switzerland was always the counter-market to Belgium where they go to see almost everything. I think the problem is that we’ve never had a court. Theatre and film grow best in surroundings of chieftains or moguls. It takes a decided Yes and the necessary cash to make it happen. Here it’s rather bodies.

We do have a good reputation for documentary work. Maybe it has a come of age a bit. But of stronger influence is really the overflow here, idle people free from needs. Frozen stiff inside

Second last film lab closed ten days ago, there’s now only one left with ECN-ECP lines.

Worst of all is that even colleges of higher education dropped film entirely. Not one foot of film exposed any more in Basel, Zürich or Genève. The cowards.

I'm swiss and I'm a filmer. But for inexplicable reasons I live in Barcelona. I love shooting on film, but now I'm trying my luck as a screenwriter. It's not going too well. Would it be worth it to return to Switzerland? Is it hard to get any sort of job in television that'll pay the bills?

A filmer is too general a designation. I’m a filmer, too, although a tech, not creative. Define yourself more concisely, tell people exactly what you’re after and what you’re able to do. Call the TV redactors.
