Another angle on the aftermath of the Griffith Park fire

Borys Kit of The Hollywood Reporter wrote a great article regarding the fact that officials still are not permitting film and television shoots as crews in Griffith Park since last month’s fire. In fact, the park is closed for shooting indefinitely.

According to nonprofit production service organization FilmL.A., the park saw 217 production days for features in 2006 and 318 for television projects. The organization said the park’s closure displaces two productions per day.

Trees hollowed out by a blaze, for example, might not seem damaged but could topple over. Rocks might remain superheated long after a fire has been vanquished.
