Off-lot shooting in L.A. declines

Down 2% from same period last year

With a sharp drop in feature activity, off-lot shooting in the Los Angeles area declined 2% vs. the same period last year during the week that ended Sunday.

Feature activity shot down 48% compared to the year-ago week with 57 days permitted, according to figures released Tuesday by the FilmL.A. permit coordinating agency.

Matthew Vaughn’s “First Class,” starring James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, was the most active in features, obtaining permits for nine production days for the period.

TV activity rose 6% to 425 days, led by 33 days for GCM Prods.’ reality skein “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution 2.”

However, the Los Angeles Unified School District suspended filming last week of all reality TV shows in district schools after concerns arose over the potential disruption. FilmL.A. processed 448 licenses (rental agreements) for the LAUSD last year.

Commercials posted a 4% gain during the week with 161 days. Supply and Demand was the most active producer with 21 dates, all for a spot for Jeep.
