LA production days suffers downslide

Off-lot feature production in Los Angeles posted its weakest quarter ever during the opening three months of this year amid the threat of an actors strike and the ongoing trend of features shooting outside Hollywood.

First-quarter stats released Monday by permitting agency FilmL.A. showed 903 days of feature shooting, off 56% from the 2008 first quarter and down 14% from the fourth quarter -- which set the previous record for lowest production level since record keeping began in 1994.
