Report: Los Angeles film production falls by 50 per cent since 1996

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - When it comes to making feature films and television dramas, producers are increasingly seeking locations outside Los Angeles.

The Daily News (http://bit.ly/1iVX0NI ) cites a FilmLA report that finds feature filming in the area plummeted 50 per cent from its peak in 1996. TV drama production is down 39 per cent from its 2008 peak.

FilmLA is a non-profit that facilitates film permits across Southern California. The report looks at 20 years of data.

Features and TV dramas are the highest-spending and most job-producing of the various types of film work. Their decline is blamed primarily on the 40-plus other states and foreign countries that lure producers with tax credits and other incentives.

Lower-value productions such as reality TV shows and still photo shoots are up 16 per cent in the past six years.
