Hey guys, i am 23 years old, and i want to move to London/Canada to live and work. But before i move, i need to get better in English, and have work experience. My career is 3D modeling and Animation for feature movies. So VFX houses in London are in Soho/Vancouver .Could you tell me about that place? How safe it is, sharing flat,how expensive it is, Do i need to have car? Because i don't have drive license yet, so it's better to be close to the vfx houses, by walk or by bicycle.

But the problem is, I am non EU, so i need visa and work permit there. How hard it is to get? ) i am taking here for London)

I heard that, getting visa or work permit for UK, is really hard, and everyone recommend me to move and get visa for Canada.

I think we're going to have to put up a sticky to answer these types of questions!

Forgive me Bokche, but we get many questions of this type.

More often than not, and I'm not saying that you would do this, we get vague questions about this type of subject and never hear from the poster again.

The general rule, as I understand it, is that non EU residents need to prove that they can do a job that cannot be done by an EU resident, or that there is a short fall in people that can do it.

I'm sure there are posters here who will put me right.
