Slow Start for On-Location Filming In L.A.


FilmLA Logo - cut from reportIn the first quarter of 2019, on-location filming in Greater Los Angeles has declined with a simultaneous slowdown in Feature, Television and Commercial production. Recently reported by FilmLA, only one project brought to Los Angeles by the California Film & Television Tax Credit Program was filmed on-location from January through April, after the other projects wrapped at the end of 2018.


According to the California Film Commission, there are many new feature films that began production in the state including 18 projects (10 studio projects and 8 independent projects) that were announced for the tax credit program in April, which will contribute to an increase in the local Feature activity.

Scripted series is also bringing increases for TV Drama and TV Comedy production. Most of the losses have stemmed from the substantial decrease in TV Pilot, Web-based TV and TV Reality production in Los Angeles. Despite the drop from last year’s near-record highs, FilmLA’s research group expects local filming levels to increase as the year progresses.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
