Brexit Advice For The Expat Thespian

The United Kingdom is in an uproar.  The Brexit has many speculations causing facts and rumors to become indistinguishable. Nevertheless, there's one truth that does hold; changes are happening for the people of the U.K.  Those changes will affect all parts of the economy but the film industry, like in any economic change, will take some hits.  I'm originally from the Caribbean and I have enough family and friends in the British Virgin Islands to sympathize. So, to all my expat thespian friends in or from the U.K. here is  

Brexit Advice For The Expat Thespian

Don't Make Any Rash Decisions - Precision is key in this time of upheaval.  However, if your action is too soon or too late more problems could incur.   So how do you know when to act? By making sure that you're taking a calculated risk and not a gamble with your career. Remember, people who count cards at a Black Jack table take a calculated risk; but people who "go-all-in" without knowing the stakes are gambling.  I know your career means everything to you and that you've put in sweat, blood, and tears but take a step back, do your research and look at the facts objectively.    

Google Alert Your Info - Terms such as "media program support," "visa and work permits for U.K. citizens" and "quotas for European content on TV"  will be important changes for you to know ahead of time.  Google Alerts can keep you abreast of your industry making you a professional that's in the know.  Be the expat thespian that's proactive in what's happening so that your not reactive and left behind. We're in a competitive business and being an informed professional could save your career. 

Follow The Money - Find out where the gains and losses for the British film industry will be because the pound/dollar/euro doesn't lie. We're in show business and remembering the business is key.  Yes, there are a number of aspects that could be a by product of the Brexit.  However, with things still being up in the air one thing is certain; money will be a deciding factor.  No country, business, or person wants to lose out on funding but the Brexit could bring inevitable change.  So, follow the money.  One very important quote I've learned to live by, "If it ain't making money, then it ain't making cents."  

This is a complex time for all of us.  The Brexit will have an affect on the American film industry also and we all know what impacts Hollywood has a trickle down affect.  To all my U.K. brothas and sistas, of the thespian order, my thoughts are with you.  We will survive this and be Expat Thespian Strong!

top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
