Location Filming Drops In L.a. -- Despite Tax Incentives

Location production of feature films in the city of Los Angeles and nearby parts of the county declined 5.3 percent in the first quarter versus last year, according to FilmL.A., the one-stop permit facilitator for the area. In a statement issued on Tuesday FilmL.A. pointedly noted that the decline in filming came despite tax incentives offered through the state. Shooting for television productions was also down in the first quarter -- by 3.7 percent -- with reality television shows showing the greatest decline, 6.4 percent. "The latest data suggest a softness in the industry, but not a full loss of momentum," FilmL.A. Chairman Ed Duffy said in a statement. "Pilot production is up and we have a couple big features in production, so we're optimistic about a better set of numbers come July."
