Filmmaking in L.A. Event Works to Inform Local Filmmakers

-

In an ongoing effort to bring production back to L.A., the Los Angeles Post Production Group is teaming up with NewFilmmakers Los Angeles and FilmL.A. to provide an opportunity for filmmakers to become better informed about what the City of Los Angeles has to offer, how the permitting process works and what types of facilities are even available free of charge in the “Entertainment Capital of the World.”

As reported by FilmL.A., last year California ranked fourth behind Louisiana, Canada and the United Kingdom in total live-action feature projects, total related film jobs and total related production spending. “Considering California’s vast filmmaking talent, the state should be exporting films for global audiences, not jobs to global competitors,” said FilmL.A. president Paul Audley. “State policymakers have the opportunity to make a difference this year by expanding California’s film and television tax credit. We hope they give the strongest possible signal to the film industry that they want to keep film jobs in California.”

The Navigating Filmmaking in LA Panel event, under arrangement by the trio of L.A based companies, will allow for filmmakers to network with one another and take part in an informative panel discussion moderated by Audley and a panel of award-winning filmmakers who have successfully completed and distributed films shot in L.A. Topics will include a discussion of their creative process, funding sources, how location affected budget, what tools they utilized in orchestrating the logistics of the production, and finally, their post process and how it may or may not have related to their on-set locations.

The brainchild of this event, Larry Laboe, executive director of NewFilmakers Los Angeles, explained, “This is something that effects the entire filmmaking community in L.A. and especially emerging filmmakers who are seeking entry level opportunities in the industry.”

LAPPG founder Woody Woodhall welcomes partnering with NewFilmmakers and FilmL.A. on this event. “Each of our organizations share the same goal, to reach out to our communities and encourage our filmmakers to let their representatives know how important keeping production and postproduction here in LA is to our livelihoods. Larry’s idea to combine the strengths of each of our organizations to partner in this event was a stroke of genius to make members aware of the depth of the problem and for creating inventive and practical solutions to keep the work here in L.A.”

This event is being widely supported by associations, local vendors and media outlets across Los Angeles and beyond including ABS Payroll, Atomos, Below the Line, Creative Handbook, FilmBreak, Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, IATSE Local 706 Make-up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild, Mercury Production Report, MovieMaker Magazine, Post Production Buyer’s Guide, ProductionHUB, Robert Taylor Entertainment Insurance Worldwide, SAG-AFTRA, SAG Indie, We Make Movies and Women In Film.
