I finally have my Green Card. It’s been a long trip, with multiple diversions along the way.
WORK VISA’S ARE PROGRESSIVELY HARDER TO GET
Back in 1988 I looked at moving to the US while I was on a film production in Orlando during the winter. I enjoyed working on film projects in many areas of the USA and looked forward to returning someday permanently.
HOLLYWOOD AND NYC ARE STILL THE BIGGEST PRODUCERS
I was based out of Toronto, and busy with film productions; even though the busiest film and television production were in California and New York (currently followed by Georgia and Louisiana).
MY WORKSHOPS HAVE KEPT ME KEENLY AWARE
Because I have worked in 6 countries, and in 5 different US cities, working anywhere in the USA is not a hardship for me. Also, delivering week-end workshops on US Payroll and Film Accounting throughout America has kept me keenly aware of the US film and production scene.
LOOKING FORWARD TO NEW ADVENTURES
Now that I have my green card I look forward to contributing and sharing my hard earned skills with you here in the film arena. New adventures are definitely on the horizon.
Cheers / John
