For nearly one hundred years, California has been the center of film production for the entire world, and Los Angeles has become synonymous with big budget movies and Hollywood superstars. While the film industry is worth nearly 11 billion, just like any other industry, it is drastically affected when the economy isn’t doing well. This causes an over saturation of hopeful employees and not enough work in the major production cities.
People are now looking for other ways to break into the entertainment industry, and often times this will have them looking at locations other then New York and Los Angeles to get their foot into the door.
While these two megacities will hold market share in the film production industry for many years to come, there are other cities throughout the world that are building a reputation for hosting some of the best film production companies, directors, and actors in the world, and San Diego is one city that is leading the way.
A growing economy will boost a city’s film production industry in many ways, and San Diego’s economy has been growing due to the amount of tourism, international trade, biotechnology, and media production that takes place year round.
Today, film production is not just about making movies and TV shows; as the economy of a city grows, more companies will make it their head quarters, and need commercial video production services.
When there is growth in a city, there will always be a need for commercial video production, marketing videos, training videos, product videos, news production, and interviews.
Behind all of these videos are talented individuals working as writers, cinematographers, directors, production coordinators, and editors. As these filmmakers grow in experience, their ability to work on larger projects with bigger clients continues to increase. The more work they have, the more money they have to re-invest in their own studios, equipment, and crew. After a few years these small production companies are able to work on bigger, more creative projects. This includes producing independent films and pilot TV episodes, and eventually feature films. Over the past few years, San Diego has seen a rise in independent film production companies, as well as more creative media being produced.
The reason San Diego’s film production industry is growing so fast is because of success in other industries in the city. Companies in the health, energy, and technology fields are growing extremely quickly, and San Diego is a hot bed for start up companies. Along with a huge education system in San Diego, a large naval base is located on the island of Coronado. All of these companies, businesses, and corporations are bringing in investors, and are all relying on local companies to provide additional services.

While San Diego has been the location for many feature length films and TV Shows, due to the San Diego Film Commission closing in 2013, there has been a halt in major motion pictures being produced here. Because of this, many film production companies looking to film in San Diego are initially off put by the fact that no such organization exists. Anchorman, Almost Famous, and Traffic are just a few famous films that have been shot in San Diego, and with perfect weather, beaches, and a bustling downtown, San Diego has nearly any type of setting a film producer will need, and Pixel Productions is working hard to bring the film industry back.
