Offlot production up 8% in L.A.

Strong week for TV shooting with 409 days, says FilmL.A.

Overall offlot filming in Hollywood increased 8% during the week after Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation extending the incentive program for two years.

Brown approved the extension on Sept. 29, ensuring another $100 million in annual tax credits for productions shot in California. The credits will be awarded in mid-2014 and mid-2015 via a lottery conducted by the California Film Commission.

The FilmL.A. permitting agency reported 409 days in the mainstay TV production category for the week ended Saturday, well above the average for the first nine months of the year of 305 days per week and 32% above the same week a year ago. “Touch” and “Private Practice” were the most active TV shoots with 11 and 10 days, respectively.

Other TV shoots included “Mistresses,” “Bones,” “Raising Hope” and “Amnesia TV.”

Feature filming was relatively soft with 105 days, led by 13 for indie feature “Caveman.” Other shoots included “About Last Night” and “Trust Me.”

Hollywood’s offlot production slid 3.9% in the third quarter due to declines in feature production, which plunged 21.1%, and the two largest TV categories: dramas, with an 18.5% loss to 923 days, and reality, down 20.5% to 1,579 days, according to figures released last week by FilmL.A.
