Offlot L.A. production down 6%

Local shoots had increased for seven straight weeks

Production in Los Angeles has cooled down following seven straight weeks of increased activity as the business eased up ahead of the Thanksgiving break.

Overall offlot activity edged down 6% for a total of 357 permitted days, according to figures disclosed Tuesday by the FilmL.A. permitting agency. That was less than half the total of 930 days racked up during the previous frame.

Feature activity totalled a sparse 62 days, led by a dozen days for Jason Bateman’s directorial debut “Bad Words,” in which the thesp portrays a bitter thirtysomething who uses a loophole to enter a national kids’ spelling bee. Recent shoots have taken place at the Sportsmen’s Lodge and at the Hollywood American Legion hall.

Other features shooting locally include Alcon Entertainment’s Hilary Swank drama “You’re Not You” and indie project “Splintered.”

TV shooting was less than half that of the previous week with 225 days, led by reality series “Top Engineer.” Other smallscreen shoots included “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “The Client List,” “Push Girls,” “Break’n Reality 2” and “Suburgatory.”

Even with a holiday slowdown coming in mid-December, the fourth quarter is on track to easily eclipse the 2011 quarter following double-digit gains in every week in October and early November.
