Los Angeles has a reputation for being an expensive place to shoot an indie film, but the truth is, you can save a lot of money by staying local. Join Film Independent as they welcome Joshua Mingo and Tim Overbeck from Film L.A., to give you insight on shooting in Los Angeles on an indie budget. They’ll offer tips on finding the right locations and how the Film L.A. office can assist; which neighborhoods are film-friendly, which areas of the city can double for out-of-state locations, everything you need to know about permits, securing street closures for a scene, shooting scenes in cars and other elements that can significantly increase your budget. They’ll also address how they anticipate production will change in response to COVID-19.
