There are many upsides to having a strong film production economy. The hit ABC television show, The Rookie, Season 5, Episode 1, was aired on September 25, 2022, at Morongo Casino Resort & Spa in Cabazon, Riverside County.
Film production generates jobs, both directly and indirectly. The industry requires various skilled workers, including actors, directors, cinematographers, set designers, and sound technicians. Additionally, various support roles, such as caterers, drivers, and security personnel, are needed to ensure smooth operations on set. The jobs created by the film industry provide employment opportunities and contribute to developing a skilled workforce in the local community.
Film production can attract investment to the local economy. Production companies often spend money on equipment, accommodations, transportation, and other goods and services required during filming. Additionally, film production can spur investment in infrastructure, such as studio facilities and soundstages. Investment in film production can boost the local economy, creating a ripple effect that benefits other industries and businesses.
Film production can also generate tourism, as viewers may be inspired to visit locations featured in their favorite films and TV shows. For example, the popularity of HBO’s Game of Thrones led to increased tourism in the locations where the show was filmed, such as Dubrovnik, Croatia, and Iceland. Tourism resulting from film production can create revenue streams for local businesses, such as hotels, restaurants, and souvenir shops. It can increase the visibility and appeal of the destination to a global audience.
