Weekly L.A. lensing hits new low

Production dips as TV gains 7%

Offlot feature production remained soft during the second week of the second quarter, declining 43% to 57 permitted days vs. the same period in 2010, while TV gained 7% for the week.

The feature activity represented the lowest figure of the year, according to figures provided Tuesday by the FilmL.A. permitting agency. The numbers showed that Amber Lamps’ production of “Bad Ass” was the most active production during the week on the feature side with 15 permitted days.

TV activity dominated as usual with 370 days, up 25 from the same week in 2010. State Penn’s reality show “Cop” was the most active with 28 days.

Commercials gained five days to 144; the most active shoot was a spot for Progressive Insurance with 10 days.

Currently, there are no productions shooting that are receiving tax credit incentives provided by the state’s 2-year-old Film and Television Tax Credit Program. Two weeks ago, the productions receiving credits that were shooting included “Rizzoli and Isles,” “Wrong” and “My Mother’s Curse.”

More than 100 productions have taken part in the program including “No Strings Attached,” “Faster” and “The Social Network,” the FX series “Justified” and upcoming pic “The Muppet Movie.”
