This is extremely inaccurate. Unless you're privileged and/or have already saved a decent amount of money to fall back on, then you should absolutely not operate under the assumption that you can make money with film just anywhere. Especially if you're a crew member and not an above the line specialty.
I've lived in Maine, Florida, Massachusetts, Georgia, and New York. The place I've had the most consistent work is New York. Atlanta was relatively dry unless you're union but it does depend on the department. Mass has an ok industry but it's small and it would likely take a bit of time to establish yourself. Florida has a decent indie industry but it is spotty and scattered throughout the state so you'd likely have to travel a lot for work. Maine is small production companies that if you're lucky you could maybe work for but it would not be creative in the least. I worked on one feature while I was there and the entire crew was flown in from LA save for about 3 locals. It is massively naive to spread the rhetoric that you can live and make money anywhere in the country doing what we do. If you're really trying to make a living with no side hustle then you pretty much NEED to be in one of these bigger cities. Even then, work can still be spotty at least one to two months of the year and you need to be careful with your money since one month you may have no work prospects.
I have no idea what the f you mean by "the internet is a thing that works" but I think it's important not to lead people into a false idea of what is possible and not career and location wise when you clearly either don't know what you're talking about or have lucked out in a way that not everyone may be able to.
