To be a filmmaker, you just need to make good films, submit them to Film Festivals and Distributors and hope to get lucky. You also need a degree in Film at college and uni. You don’t need to go to film school either. Imagine if Spielberg was turned down by some major producer who saw Duel simply because his record didn’t show a Film School qualification – I think he would be the loser!
If you’re still planning to relocate, go for LA and good luck!
