L.A. production rises 14% for year’s high

Silver Lake-shot 'The Time Being' is most active

Offlot production in Los Angeles heated up last week to the highest level of 2012, rising 14% over the same week a year ago and hitting a yearly high.

Production was also up more than 25% from the 2011 weekly average to 728 days, according to figures provided Tuesday by the FilmL.A. permitting agency.

Features totalled 92 days last week — more than double the sluggish period a year ago. “The Time Being” was the most active film shooting last week with 15 days with much of the lensing at a private residence near the Silver Lake reservoir.

Other films currently shooting offlot in Los Angeles include “Brahmin Bulls,” “Cellar,” “Channeling,” “Coffee Town,” “Smart Ass,” “The Dog Who Saved Christmas Eve” and “Vigilandia.”

TV shoots declined 9% to 385 days due partly to pilot season starting later than last year. Top TV shoot was racked up by Fuse’s webisode/mobisode “Mountain Dew” with 36 days. Other shows shooting locally included “Awake,” “Criminal Minds,” “Revenge,” “The Client List,” “Southland,” “Touch,” “Windsor Square,” “America’s Got Talent,” “House Crashers,” “Overtones, ” “Push Girls” and “The Glee Project.”

Commercials showed robust activity last week with 251 days, up 39% over same week last year. A Visa spot was the most active with 12 days.
