Not true at all. Sure, LA is where most of the big-budget studio productions are, but like Sonnyboo said, LA also means significantly more competition, and an increasing number of productions, including major studio productions, are leaving LA. This is due to tax incentives and costs/hassles involved in shooting in LA. I know there are a lot of great places to be making movies and working on other people's movies right now besides LA. Just food for thought. I've considered the same thing, but I just don't think I want to move to LA at any point in my life; no reason to, unless you want to move up the PA chain on Hollywood blockbusters, which still probably won't lead to you working in the creative aspects of Hollywood filmmaking.
