San Pedro along with other South Bay cites is making a new effort to entice “Hollywood”  to bring their film making back to the South Bay. We have a long history of films being shot in our community because of the diverseness of the area, but less and less are now being filmed here.

San Pedro has always been great for the harbor shots. With its old buildings and warehouses that can look like the east coast and now with the Battleship Iowa docked, the possibilities are endless.

Our beaches can take on a look of Miami Beach, for instance, just study the scenes in Miami CSI. This series was shot here in Manhattan and Redondo Beaches. We have historic Elementary and High schools such as Fern Elementary and Torrance High School which are both circa 1920s and are national historic building. These schools have been used on numerous occasions. Or how about using the beautiful old Library building at Veterans Park in Redondo Beach?

So we have the venues needed now we need to put our heads together and come up with create ways to lure ”Hollywood” back. Certainly we need to petition Sacramento to give more monetary incentives to the filmmakers. What the general public does not understand is that a city, private business or even private individuals get paid when their property is used. In fact, many a church have fattened their coffers in this manner.

Something is very wrong when it is more cost effective to film across the country, moving crews, equipments and personnel than filming right here in Hollywood’s back yard.
