Offlot production slow with TV on hiatus

L.A. lensing drops 6% from a year earlier

Hollywood’s offlot production has started the third quarter on a quiet note, sliding 6% during the holiday week from the 2011 period to 383 permitted days.

With network TV on hiatus, overall activity was off by about a third from an average week. Permitting agency FilmL.A. reported Tuesday that the most active smallscreen production was an untitled NBC reality show with 26 days and “Push Girls” with 21.

Other TV shows shooting locally include “Pit Boss,” “Brides of Beverly Hills,” “Shameless” and “Animal Kingdom.”

Feature films totaled 115 days, led by Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups” with 16. “Cups,” starring Natalie Portman and Christian Bale, has logged about 60 permitted days, shooting at Nicholas Canyon Beach, in the Port of Los Angeles and the 6th Street Bridge.

Other features shooting locally include “Lucky Stiff,” “Claire’s Cambodia” and “Immigrant.”

Commercial shooting was soft with 58 days.

FilmL.A. reported last week that Hollywood’s offlot production remained constant during the second quarter, edging down 0.4% from the 2011 period: TV production was down a steep 15.4%, but a 9.1% gain in features and a 28% hike in commercial activity took up the slack.
