Santa Clarita saw an 8 percent increase in the number of permits issued in 2014 for television and feature film production, the city announced on Monday.
The city’s film office issued 502 permits used for 1,339 days of location filming, a 6 percent increase from the approximately 1,259 film days in 2013.
The economic impact from film and television production was $32.2 million, also a 6 percent increase from the prior year.
Projects filmed included television series “NCIS,” “Justified,” and “Criminal Minds,” and feature films “”American Sniper,” “Furious 7,” and “Scouts vs. Zombies.”
Santa Clarita Mayor Marsha McLean said the high number of permits and filming days show the city remains a top choice for production companies.
“Filming remains a big part of our business community and local economy by supporting high paying jobs and hundreds of companies involved in the industry,” McLean said in a prepared statement.
