For years I said I would never "chase the work". However, the incentives have bottomed out here in Texas and production is damn near non-existent.
Just looking for ya'lls thoughts; pro and con. How would you approach and plan for this desperate choice?
I'm considering leaving my family here in Austin, moving into a crappy, cheap apartment outside Atlanta to see If I can't land a few operating jobs in the next few months.
An AD friend of mine, who relocated from Austin to Georgia several months ago, wrote me last night and said: "You should come this way. It’s a bounty unlike anything you have ever seen. Camera is always in demand as there is a shortage. Currently we have 41 shows going on here simultaneously. A new show lands and inquires about every 3 to 5 days."
If I remember, isn't there a "grace period" under the IATSE Local 600 bylaws that says when one relocates, you cannot do union work for a certain number of weeks/months? Does anyone know what that time frame is?
Any insight or experience with this topic will be appreciated.
