The Santa Clarita Film Office has re-opened and is once again issuing permits, officials said Thursday.
Filming in the County of Los Angeles and the State of California was put on hold in mid-March as health officials looked to slow the spread of COVID-19, according to the City of Santa Clarita.
On June 12, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued a revised Health Order, along with safety protocols, to allow for the re-opening of the entertainment industry, which includes film and television production.
The City’s Fiscal Year ended on June 30, and despite the three-month stoppage, the final numbers were still very strong. In Fiscal Year 19/20, the Film Office issued 468 permits, which led to 1,249 film days and $30,771,500 in estimated economic impact.
This last fiscal year marked the seventh in a row that the City’s film program generated over $30 million in estimated economic impact, officials said.
“We are excited to see productions begin to film in our City once again,” said Santa Clarita Mayor Cameron Smyth. “The City’s film program remains an integral part of the local economy, and we look forward to safely resuming filming on our sound stages, movie ranches and on location throughout the Santa Clarita Valley.”
In the last year, several productions were based at Santa Clarita movie ranches and sound stages including: “Bless This Mess,” “Goliath,” “Mayans MC,” “Good Trouble,” “NCIS,” “S.W.A.T.,” “68 Whiskey,” “Party of Five” and “Holey Moley,” according to the City.
Other television shows that filmed on location in Santa Clarita last fiscal year included “Seal Team,”
“Reno 911,” “Space Force,” “This is Us,” “Homeland,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Goldbergs,” “Masked Singer” and many more.
Several feature films were filmed in Santa Clarita, including “Yes Day” and “The Outlaw Johnny Black,” along with dozens of national commercial spots ranging from McDonald’s to Nissan to Walmart and Adidas, according to the City.
