LA no longer the center for film scoring

“…a panel of experts warn that film, TV and videogame scoring continues to leave L.A. because producers are unwilling to meet union demands.

“If work continues to dry up at the current rate, they speculated, one or more of the three remaining large scoring stages (Fox, Sony, Warner Bros.) could close “within the next two to five years,” leaving London as the new scoring capital of the world and cheaper locations like Prague and Bratislava as second and third choices.”
