Reflecting the popularity of California’s revised film incentive program, location shoots in the Los Angeles area jumped 6.2 percent last year, led by record feature film production, an industry tracker said Tuesday.
During 2016, feature film production increased 12 percent from the previous year to 4,865 shoot days.
That makes 2016 the strongest year for this sector since California introduced its first film incentive program in 2009, according to FilmL.A. Inc., the official film permitting office that represents the city and county of L.A.
A shoot day constitutes one calendar day of filming per production.
