Filming in Inyo County appears to have slowed down over the past 12 months, but Film Commissioner Chris Langley said Tuesday that he expects it to pick back up.
Langley said he does not have an estimate about how many films or commercials shot in Inyo County over the past year. â€śI canâ€™t recall the permits from the different agencies (that issue film permits, including the Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service) because the people who issue the permits are being shifted around. But we havenâ€™t been as busy as in years past, I suspect.â€ť
Langley said he is working to build a relationship with new staff members from the Forest Service and BLM who are issuing filming permits.
