Inside Move: New homebodies

Security, patriotism fuel H'wood prod'n

Staying put is becoming popular.

As a result of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Hollywood is starting to put the brakes on runaway production to less costly locations. The strong possibility of armed conflict has raised the attractiveness of filming in the United States generally and Southern California specifically.

“Producers want to stay here,” declares Vance Van Petten, exec director of the Hollywood-based Producers Guild of America. “And it’s not really the fear factor. It’s very much a groundswell of patriotism and the re-emergence of the ‘can-do’ mentality.”

Michael M. Moore, prexy of Raleigh Studios, says commercials production has surged in recent weeks along with a pickup in inquiries about future space for features at Raleigh lots in Hollywood and Manhattan Beach.

“There’s clearly a desire to support American business,” he notes. “If everyone had their druthers, they’d rather be with their families, where the talent and studios are.”
