Hey all, I'm an American film maker and have been living in Asia for some time, now planning to move to a place where I could move onto making distribute-able feature films and one day breaking into the industry. I have two choices I'm considering: - Hong Kong, where the government is trying to promote made-in-Hong Kong films to revive the now declined Hong Kong film industry. They have sponsorships (not sure how hard they are to get and I know they are limited), and if I made a film in Mandarine, I'd have access to the world's #2 market, China, for distribution. But my concerns are: language and cultural barriers (both come up when translating my script and it's very frustrating when I hire a professional translator and even they don't translate it right). - New York - don't know much other than the possibilities seem endless and I read somewhere it's one of the top places to be as a film maker. I've never been to NY, but I know I like living in Asia hence I'm considering HK. But if anyone has insight or advice I'd really appreciate it!
