Krekorian Continues Efforts to Spur Local Film Production

Councilmember Paul Krekorian, on the Sony Studios backlot with Glenn Gainor, vice-president of physical production at Screen Gems | Ausgut 19, 2010.

Last week, multiple news agencies reported that Councilmember Paul Krekorian introduced a slate of motions to incentivize local film production and make the production of movies easier on those who help fuel one of our biggest economic engines.

Councilmember Krekorian, vice-chair of the Jobs and Business Development Committee, is a former California State Assemblymember who authored California’s first successful bill to incentivize local film production. His legislation has had a direct and immediate impact by generating at least $500 million in wages and more than 11,000 jobs since its passage in 2009.
