TV shoots boost prod’n in L.A.

Overall offlot activity dips as feature work falls off

Production in Los Angeles has remained active, thanks to a bounce in TV shoots in dramas, reality and sitcoms.

Overall offlot activity edged down 1% last week for a total of 702 permitted days, according to figures disclosed Tuesday by the FilmL.A. permitting agency. That was eight days less than the total racked up during the 2011 frame.

Feature activity totalled a sparse 86 days, led by 10 days for Jason Bateman’s directorial debut “Bad Words.” Joshua Gollish’s low-budget “Stranglehold” logged seven days.

Gollish lamented the lack of major features that are shot in Los Angeles.

“As a filmmaker, it’s an honor to be shooting here,” he added. “We recently shot some aerial footage right after the rain and it was great with the ominous clouds against the mountains and the air being incredibly clear.”

Other features shooting locally include “Crash the Sky,” “Charlie” and “The Broken.”

TV shooting was led by ABC’s “Criminal Minds” with 16 days. Other small-screen shoots included “Burger Wars,” “Teen Wolf,” “Touch” and “Urban Tarzan.”
