One sure sign filming is returning to Southern California is the influx of complaints received by local government and/or permitting authorities.

More filming means more trucks and crew taking to the streets and usually populating parking lots and valuable street parking which in turn often leads to complaints from residence and others affected from the disturbance.

A recent story in the Los Angeles Daily News indicated the problem is escalating. The article said "complaints about filming were up nearly 20 percent this year, compared with 2013, according to Film L.A., the nonprofit that oversees production and issues permits. All told, the agency responded to 3,268 complaints in fiscal year 2015."

While many Californians are celebrating the industry’s return, that is a result of the recent $330 million yearly taxpayer subsidies that was approved for the film and television industry others living in these residential areas are feeling a burden as they wake up to filming on their streets.
