Latest FilmL.A. Study Shows Most Hollywood Blockbusters Shoot Outside of California

From The Mercury News:

Of the top 100 highest-grossing feature films released in 2016, only 12 were primarily shot in California, according to a new analysis out Tuesday.

“La La Land,” “Zootopia,” “Sully” and nine other films placed the state fourth overall in worldwide jurisdictions where high-earning – and generally higher-spending – movies get made.

So where are the big-budget movies shooting?

Georgia led the 2016 domestic releases list with 17 big productions, followed by the United Kingdom with 16 and Canada with 13.

The main reason those places outperformed California in this particular industry segment had everything to do with their production incentive programs; California’s is capped at $330 million per year and only applies to costs below $100 million per film. Other places have no caps at all.
