Pic, TV shooting declines

Offlot feature filming in L.A. remains low

Last week’s offlot feature filming in Los Angeles remained at near the lowest level this year for the second consecutive frame.

Week’s total of 90 days was nine days ahead of the previous week, which had been lower that any other frame since mid-April. Feature activity was less than half the 2011 highs for the year of 246 days and 229 days during the last two weeks of June.

“Hero of the Day” was the most active feature with 12 permitted days, according to figures provided Tuesday by the FilmL.A. permitting agency. Other features lensing in L.A. included Warner Bros.’ “Gangster Squad” along with “I Do,” “Lords of Salem,” “Plan B” and “A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III.”

Total permitted production days declined 19% to 533 last week.

TV shooting declined 19% to 341 days, with “Private Practice” the most active last week with 14 days. Other TV productions currently shooting in L.A. include “American Horror Story,” “Body of Proof,” “Chuck,” “Southland,” “Pit Boss,” “Got Home Alive” and “The Braxtons.”

Commercial shooting was up 3% to 102 days with a Lincoln Financial commercial shot racking up the most days at nine.
