PORN PRODUCERS FLEEING L.A.

It’s well known that Hollywood has been hit hard by productions fleeing to other states offering tax breaks and other incentives. Now, according to FilmL.A., it appears that producers of X-rated films are also departing — because of a new county law that mandates that condoms be used by actors in those films. Today’s (Thursday) Los Angeles Times reported that the number of permits for location filming in the area plunged 90 percent in 2013 compared with 2012. "We’ve seen a dramatic drop in permits," Paul Audley, president of FilmL.A., told the Times. "It is a cause for concern that people who are manning the cameras, lights and other things on those sets are not working anymore…. It’s not helpful to have another segment of the industry leave the region."
