Who can I call if I have questions about filming happening on my street? Who is organizing the Film Works L.A. campaign? Film Works is composed of a coalition of industry stake-holders from small businesses, local companies, labor organizations, community leaders and concerned citizens who want to take an active role in strengthening community ties to the entertainment industry and help keep Los Angeles the entertainment production of the world. What is Runaway Production? While definitions of runaway production vary, Dr. Martha Jones of the California Research Bureau offers a succinct definition: “Runaway production refers to films that were conceptually developed in the United States, but filmed somewhere else. If the conversation is at the federal level, runaway production goes to other countries. If at the state level, production that goes to other states is runaway.” What Can I do to help? Film Works encourages everyone to learn as much as they can about the importance of the entertainment industry to the Los Angeles region.
