Preventing Problems Through Production Planning

FilmLAFor FilmmakersLeave a Comment

If you’re working on a feature film, television show or commercial, how do you measure on-the-job frustration?

Do you measure it in hours wasted scouting locations that can’t be filmed, either because of conflicts with other productions or area filming restrictions?

Or, do you measure it in earfuls of grief from community members or your producer, because the activities you meticulously planned met with unexpected — but avoidable — opposition?

Whatever your frustrations, there’s a good chance FilmL.A. can help — if you take time early in your planning to give us a call.

Since 2005, we’ve offered local filmmakers our free production planning service and with it, direct access to everything we know about what it takes to film in local neighborhoods.
