Film Production - LA Location Shooting Lowest On Record

Film Production - LA Location Shooting Lowest On Record

According to the Associated Press story, the number of movie and tv film productions shooting in the City of Los Angeles, California is now at an all-time low.

This breaks the all-time low
that was established last December 2008.

This year, there are 3 productions scheduled to shoot in LA.
Last year, there were 165.
The year before, there were 430.

C'mon people! This is Hollywood CA USA. The Entertainment Capital of the world. It's sunny, we have all the talent, and there are girls in bikinis.

Who's our only real competition? Various Europeans, and a bunch of frostbitten Englishmen in some former colonies. Oh, and a billion Indians, and about as many Chinese. Never mind.

There are a lot of them, and they are really, really smart.
But we have nowhere else to go, and we are really, really cool.

Sunglasses on! Baggy shorts! Caps on backwards! Dude.

  3. Hi Sam,

    I know this isn't exactly a comment, but I couldn't find your e-mail address, and I wanted to write and tell you about a new website for artists, musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers: www.PutItOn.com. I've been using the site as an artist and have my work there, and am trying to support it because I believe in it. Basically, the site allows artists from all over the world to connect, display their portfolios, and sell their work (with NO commission taken!). The site gives artists a FREE gigabyte of space to showcase their portfolios, allows you to stream audio and video works, lets you create live personal broadcasts, and translates any writing into ten different languages. If you could take the time to visit the site, and if you like it too, let your readers know about it, and even sign up yourself or link to it on your site it would be greatly appreciated! We are trying to make a go of helping out artists everywhere and are trying to get the word out, so please help us out if you like the site after checking it out! Thank you!

    All the best,
    Sarah at PutItOn.com
