As an editor, it's difficult to find jobs outside India, let alone make a mark. It's difficult to work in the US and UK as it's a catch-22 situation. One needs a cine workers' union card to work with production houses, but to apply for that card, one needs to show that a production house has hired him. In France, it is easy as there is no such restriction. It's much like Bombay film industry as there are several independent filmmakers eager to hire.
