L.A. off-lot production up 5% from last week

'The Canyons' and 'How to Live With Your Parents' top shooting days

Driven by Lindsay Lohan-toplined thriller “The Canyons” and Fox comedy “How to Live with Your Parents,” total off-lot production in Los Angeles increased 5% over last week.

Permitted shooting rose by 33 days from 642 to 675 for the week ending Aug. 7, largely due to a 16% jump in feature production. Features shooting in Los Angeles include Josh Schwartz’s “Fun Size,” John Sayles’ 18th feature “Go For Sisters” starring Edward James Olmos and alien abduction thriller “Dark Skies” from Blumhouse Prods. and Dimension Films.

Television shoots increased by 7%, up to 355 days from 332 for the week. Those days include permits for skeins “Californication,” “Bones” and “Mistresses.”

Commercial spots increased from 130 days to 146 days, representing a 12% hike.

James Deen and Gus Van Sant also appear in “Canyons,” directed by Paul Schrader and written by Bret Easton Ellis. Pic has travelled to locations including a Malibu home and a shopping mall, the latter of which turned out to be problematic, according to the movie’s Facebook page: “Today we tried to go guerilla with Lindsay but we got busted first by the paparazzi then by mall security triggered by the paparazzi. Some things are not easier on a micro budget. Some things with LL are not even possible on a micro budget.”
