On-Location Filming in Los Angeles Continues to Fall


On location filming in Los Angeles continues to fall.

According to Deadline, show cancellations and fewer feature films and TV pilots shot in Los Angeles have hurt on-location film production in the city.

FilmLA issued a report and found the following stats:

  • Feature film production dropped 18.5%
  • TV pilot production dropped 60.4%
  • TV drama production plunged 24.3%
  • Web-based TV production dropped 21.8%
  • TV comedies fell 9%
  • TV reality production dropped 1%

That said, overall on-location shooting in Greater Los Angeles was down 4.7% for the quarter, thanks to a 12.5% increase in shooting days for commercials and a 7% increase in “other” productions such as student films, public service announcements, industrial videos, still photography and adult films.

FilmLA said that the huge drop in TV pilot production mirror the findings in its upcoming 2017 Pilot Study, which shows fewer pilots were ordered by networks over the last year. As a result, “production centers from L.A. to New York saw declines in the category.”
