Greetings!

Has anyone here tried out sourcing their editing jobs in other countries? Labor here in the Philippines is very VERY cheap but quality is competitive world-wide. I was just wondering about the PROs and CONs of a set-up like this and if it would be feasible to do.

I think that the time factor and the possibility of parcels lost in the post would be a worry.

As an ex BBC now freelance film editor here in the uk I think it is a good idea that people farm out their work! Would budgets allow the process? Having spent many many hours watching foreign coverage being piped into the BBC I think quality control would be a big issue if using the cheapest labour standards vary greatly just look at TV worldwide.
