My vote for talent outside of the "usual suspects," is Austin Texas. We have a high tech community including lots of video games. As far as companies, there's only a couple besides mine, but we have huge individual talent pool with barely anything to do. We've also got a bunch of people that got sick of LA and moved to Austin. I mean our compositor worked on 2012 and Star Trek...he's no less talented than anyone else still in LA, plus we can work a lot cheaper due to cost of living.
