Offlot feature filming days double in L.A.

But total is still well below 2011 highs

A surge in feature shooting has lifted overall offlot activity in Los Angeles, even with TV shooting staying soft.

Permitting agency FilmL.A. provided figures Tuesday showing that features shooting last week more than doubled to 172 permitted days with Paramount’s “HH Project” the most active production. Other shoots included “100 Street Ghost,” “Atlas Shrugged Part II,” “Blackjacks,” “Camp Fred,” “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Slayers,” “Lucky Bastard” and “Stand Up Guys.”

That figure was still well below the 2011 highs for the year of 246 days and 229 days during the last two weeks of June.

TV shooting last week edged down by 10 permitted days to 281 — well below average — with Long Pond Media’s reality skein “Family Show” the most active production with 28 days. Other shows shot locally included “Bunheads,” “Enlightened,” “The Client List,” “Bait Car: LA,” “Beverly Hills Nannies,” “Kendra on Top,” “Melissa and Tye” and “Awkward.”

Pilot production accounted for 15 days, compared with two days in the same frame of 2011. Pilot production spiked during the last two weeks of March with more than two-thirds of first-quarter production.
