A little bit of a strange request, but I can usually rely on the REDUser forum for helpful people:
I'm Australian and have been producing music videos for a few years now in Melbourne. But I'm getting itchy feet and am seriously considering relocating to Toronto. From what I understand there is a very strong independent music scene there and, coupled with the fact that it is a centre for film/television production (along with Vancouver, right?) I think it may be an ideal place for me to move to.
EDIT: I will be coming to Toronto Sunday 7th to Sunday 14th February and was wondering if anyone is willing to meet me for a coffee and a chat??. I just want to talk with some people who are working in the local "scene" and can help me gather some general information. Help me decide if it's the place for me!
Just reach out to a fellow filmmaker - remember, we all work in a global industry, there are no real national barriers to what we do and we need to stick together!
So, yeah. It's a very serious and genuine request and I trust the good folk of REDUser will be forthcoming with assistance.
