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 capital 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."
