Location managers Terry Gusto and Doug Dresser led the “Dexter” and “Takers” teams, respectively.

Location pro of the year went to Michael Chickey, location manager on Fox Searchlight’s “500 Days of Summer,” and Darrin Lipscomb, location manager on ABC’s “Bad Mother’s Handbook.”

The COLAs honor location pros, production shingles and public employees working on location in California. This COLA ceremony was the first since the state started its five-year, $500 million program of tax credits ranging from 20%-25%.

Designed to stem runaway production, the incentives kicked off on July 1.
