Location managers protest LA City Council agenda item – Council to consider tougher film permit rules and deadlines.

The LA City Council is once again contemplating changes to the City's location permit rules that stand to make much more difficult for Location Managers, especially those working on short timelines. The agenda for the March 31 Council meeting includes consideration for new rules would impose longer lead-times for permit requests to be submitted to LAPD, making it much harder to shoot in LA.

This move, comes in the form of an RFP (request for Proposals) written without any input from the film industry, one of the city's largest employers. Interestingly, it also comes on the heels of recent announcements regarding city incentive programs designed to keep film production here.
