FilmL.A., CFC, and City of L.A. Staffers at the Produced By ConferenceEarlier in June, FilmL.A. and the California Film Commission co-sponsored a booth at the second annual Produced By Conference, a three-day event organized by the Producers Guild of America and billed as “an extraordinary weekend of discovery, learning and creative inspiration” for entertainment producers.

And an inspiring few days it was!  Five FilmL.A. staffers spent their Saturday or Sunday on the Fox lot in Century City giving out swag and information about LocoScout and our complimentary production planning services.

We were joined by Amy Lemisch, Lisa Mosher and Nancy Stone of the California Film Commission, who were there to tell producers about the California Film and Television Tax Credit, as well as by City of Los Angeles representatives Rochelle Silsbee and Eva Bitar — of the Office of the Mayor and CAO, respectively — who offered insight into a battery of lesser-known perks (such as property use fee waivers and business tax relief) the City makes available to entertainment companies.

FilmL.A.’s presence at the event reflects our commitment to help promote the Los Angeles region as the best place to produce filmed entertainment.

“We’re grateful to the Produced By Conference organizers for providing the venue for face-time and conversation with industry decision-makers,” said FilmL.A. President Paul Audley.  “We and our partners also thank all of the conference participants who stopped by our booth and shared their filmmaking experiences in Los Angeles.  We look forward to doing all we can to make your future local projects a success.”
