I started in film when I was 16, it was a small film at the time that no one thought would do well. So when I saw Star Wars in the theater in 1977 it took me by surprise and that summer I had worked on Battlestar Galacatica and Buck Rogers. By the time I was 27 I was doing Star Trek the Next Generation and building the Borg Ship for the episode Q-Who. Well after 37 years of film I have been to 2/3rds of the world and worked on over 30 multi-million dollar films. The tragedy is that films are no longer made in Hollywood and the economy is so bad that business is leaving Los Angeles at 20% per year. I guess I have had a good career and I do have the very first Streamy Award for production design/art direction.
Now with the internet being the way movies are going to get out there, if I were you I would find a director who is looking for an editor and cut for him no matter where he is in the world. Movies are no a micro budget scale ($200,000 USD) and are making millions in the US market. You have great prospects, you just need to find the right directors. Try Mandy.com or Media Match, who knows you may get lucky.

Awesome! Those ones are pretty popular! You had a long career there. Wow! Thanks for the tips! I might do that! Unfortenely Internet is killing entertainment industry as we know it and the producers are really desperate to not let it happen but it's happening more fast than they wanted. :( Now it's a hit or a miss, if you're a miss you're screwed big time.
