About Malibu

Malibu, with a population of 12,000 covering 20 square miles, is located 21 miles west of Downtown Los Angeles. This famous beach city is in Los Angeles County with the Mediterranean-type climate of Southern California. The Malibu coast consists of 10 public beaches and parks within the Santa Monica Mountains Recreation Area.

This area was opened to development in 1926. The most famous district, Malibu Colony, is the original residential district that attracted Hollywood wealth. This private enclave of vacation homes became the wedge between the residents and the Union Pacific Railroad in its attempts to acquire land under eminent domain for a coastal rail line.

The high profile and the wealth of the Malibu citizens forced the Union Pacific to divert its line inland and turn back toward the coast through Ventura. The film shoot locations in Malibu reflect the wealth along the coast and inland in the canyons by way of architecture and scenery.

Film Shoot Location Options in Malibu

The film shoot locations offered in Malibu for rent are typically by the hour. The choices range from residential settings typical of the Southern California coast to working ranches in the canyons and to open commercial spaces for stage settings. The chances of having a coastal backdrop from any outdoor location are excellent.

  • Staging
    The products and services necessary for a film shoot location are offered in Malibu and nearby Los Angeles. This category includes contract labor, grips, catering, and furniture/equipment rental. The rental services can be augmented by design talent for the stage and lighting plans.

  • Catering
    Of the services needed for a film shoot, the most scrutinized is the catering. Catering to a shoot location is an art form in and of itself with specific serving detail and coordination. It is a benefit to have catering companies serving Malibu to specialize in serving a film location.

  • Permitting
    The City of Malibu requires a permit for all commercial film shoots. Under no circumstances is filming allowed on Sundays. Because of the high demand for film locations sought in Malibu, there is an office within City Hall dedicated to the film industry to obtain information and the requirements of filming within the city limits.

Film Shoot Location Companies in Malibu

The filming industry has a positive effect on Malibu for economic investment and exposure. The pool of ancillary businesses supporting the film industry runs deep in West Los Angeles County. There is no better place to locate these service companies to meet this high demand. The wage investment and job creation brought to the local economy will strengthen the position for tax incentives and grants to the project.

Pros and Cons of Film Shoot Locations in Malibu

There are pros and cons to every task and project. The management of the effects of a project takes insight and patience. The list below is a suggestion of important facts to consider for a film shoot location in Malibu.

Advantages

  • California tax credit program
    There are new guidelines under this program to even the field of competition between production companies. The budget caps and the lottery system have been eliminated. All film projects will be selected on certain ranking criteria for specific production categories.

  • Climate
    The weather in Malibu is influenced by the Pacific Ocean. Marine cooling holds temperatures within a moderate level throughout the year.

  • Local support of the film industry
    When seeking a film shoot location and the supporting services in Malibu, it will be evident that the residents and the city officials are supportive. The film industry is a main economic driver next to tourism and consumer spending.

Disadvantages

  • Competition
    The Malibu area is highly competitive for the film industry in the seeking of locations and the cost of doing business. The competition between production companies for locations will be aggressive, and this competition will drive prices high.

  • Transportation
    The mode of transportation to Malibu is not necessarily a disadvantage; the disadvantage is the lack of choice. The only practical mode, but not the cheapest, is a private car.

  • Wildfires and Mudslides
    The Malibu area does fall victim to these weather disasters. The clay slopes of the canyons in the rainy Winter can produce mudslides. The dry underbrush and the winds in the summer can produce wildfires.
