Production Planning

FilmLA’s production planning service represents our concerted effort to promote information-sharing in the Los Angeles film production community.

Our knowledgeable production planning personnel advise production companies on the rules and procedures that may apply within the various jurisdictions we serve and help filmmakers navigate a range of pre-permit location issues such as, but not limited to:

  • Identifying logistical challenges: parking, lane/street closures, base camps, etc.
  • Making reservations for Los Angeles City owned properties.
  • Understanding special filming conditions and other unique neighborhood characteristics.
  • Utilizing LocoScout, our online location library.

Community stakeholders also benefit from this process because their concerns are made known early to producers weighing which locations to select for production. For any additional questions, we can be reached at
