The border, that is:
Q. Any advice of how a dual Canadian/British (EU) passports holder can be legal to work in the U.S.?
Actually as a native New Yorker, I don't know anything about getting a visa to work in showbiz. Does anyone want to chip in a comment or two?
You don't actually need a green card to free lance a script. As a free lancer you are not an employee, and who is to say you are not doing the work at home in Canada and only taking meetings in LA? Especially if you are being paid through your Canadian loanout company. On the other hand not having a work permit of some sort prevents you from working at Fourbucks while you're trying to get free lance scripts.
On the flip side, Canada is fairly welcoming, though the process now takes 18 months for permanent residency versus 6 months when I applied in 2000. Presumably it's a function of 9/11 though apparently after the last election there was a flood of applications from scared liberals...
