Zach Mull's comments:
I was the guest talking about looking for video jobs on this episode, and I can't agree with your trees at the North Pole analogy. I live in Portland and have a video job, I've had more freelance work than I can handle for the last two years, and I have a bunch of friends from college who have worked in video jobs full time in Portland. They're not necessarily easy to come by, but they're here. The only place where you could even make an argument that they're easy to come by in the United States is LA. My NYC friends have had some luck, but the ratio of job-seekers to jobs there is really high. People who don't work in the industry often suggest going abroad, especially to Vancouver, but these are typically seen as desireable jobs by the locals, and it's not easy to get a work permit unless you're already on a big-time production, which means you technically got the job in the United States.
