City of Los AngelesFounder and Client Since 1995
The birthplace of the film and television industries, the City of Los Angeles is a cultural icon, tourism magnet and frequent star of the small and silver screens.
In fact, with more than forty-five thousand days of on-location filming taking place in the area each year, the city's 469 square-mile area could be considered the world's largest film set.
The diversity of its location resources is matched only by the diversity of its population; the four million people who call Los Angeles home come from countries throughout the world and speak hundreds of different languages. Their hard work has helped cement Los Angeles' status as a hub of international commerce and provided the U.S. with one of its most recognizable cultural exports -- entertainment.
In conjunction with officials from the County of Los Angeles, Mayor Richard Riordan and the members of the Los Angeles City Council were instrumental in the creation of our company in 1995.
Since then, we have helped streamline the City's film permit process, aided filmmakers to take advantage of the area's diverse locations and dealt proactively with the concerns of area residents and merchants inconvenienced by filming activity.
