I have been a location Manager since 1991--- back when complicated Los Angeles City and County film permit applications needed to be written by hand, in person, at the film permit office.
A lot has changed since then--- first with the EIDC and now FilmLA. And there have been immeasurable improvements municipalities have enacted to make film permits easier. But with those improvements have come exacting rules, procedures, changing deadlines and countless mandatory efforts for community outreach and notification. Quite simply--- any show’s location film permit management is now a full-time job. One requiring attention to detail, finesse, and an encyclopedic knowledge of the rules and regulations.
I am honored and proud to be a 10+ year client of PPS--- a company that has mastered and excelled in preforming all of the aforementioned tasks for their clients. Simply put, I could not do my job without them.
Their professionalism exceeds not just their competitors, but my high standards. They are invaluable, and a credit to the local filming community as a whole.
