City curtails location shooting for the holidays

batman-downtown.jpgI didn't know that this happened. The city of Los Angeles has put in place citywide "holiday filming restrictions" that limit filming activity, street closures and lane closures in all commercial and retail areas. The limits remain in effect from Nov. 21 through Jan. 2, says Film L.A., and also affect requests for curb parking for productions. "Individual filming requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and must meet a standard of minimal impact that satisfies the Los Angeles Board of Public Works, the Department of Transportation, the local City Council office, and the Los Angeles Police Department," the notice says. Well, at least there's no unnecessary bureaucracy....
