I'm just curious how many of you have been impacted by the fires, any shoot cancellations or loss of resources, etc.

On a personal note...I watched the fire on TV and all I could think of was, "Man, I love to shoot film". Crazy that that was my reaction. I wanted to be there shooting it with my Eclair NPR. :-P

I guess the news media lied. Not a single response from any of the hundreds of members in LA

Oh sure, I'm on "Westworld" and the fires caused us to shut down for a day. Right now, all shooting permits in the mountain regions like Angeles Crest have been cancelled.

Much looking forward to seeing your work on Westworld next season. An aside, my G/f actually is one of the "horde" on occasion.

 

The fires, so far have mostly just played havoc with my sinus, and coated my whole apartment complex in ash.

A friend of mine had her day scrubbed when they lost power, very close to the fires, but, aside from the great loss of land and houses, most production seems to go on.

I heard there was a an issue with getting FSOs; but dunno whats up with that.

 

 

well this literally just popped into my inbox:
