Does anyone have experience with immigrating from the US to Australia?

Just to give some background details on myself... I'm in my mid-20's, have a bachelor's degree in film production, and have worked in film production for the past 3-years full-time on very big projects. I've always loved Australia and the Australian people and find myself much more like the Australians in terms of attitude and outlook on life.

Looking forward to any suggestions people might have for me!

Have you gone to the Australian immigration web site and checked it you qualified? This would be your first step and the ultimate source of your info.
Visas, Immigration and Refugees

If you qualify, it can be done.. simple.

My husband did it, but that was after he married me (an Australian resident at the time); it was really straightforward back then (late 80's). Since that time, we did the reverse (I migrated to the US)...

Good luck with your goals!

From my recent check of skilled migration, they have taken away many categories and tightened it up. The other way is to find an employer that will sponsor you.

The film industry boomed back in the 1990's for making big hollywood films like the Matrix, but now Australia has gotten so expensive that film studios are turning to places like Eastern Europe.
