The 30 Mile Zone that Explains why Hollywood Exists
There is a video that outlines a relatively unknown “30 mile zone” that surrounds the Hollywood, California area which, according to the video, makes Hollywood the preferred location for shooting movies. The thumbnail of this video is that salaries and compensation crew members receive from the production company are significantly lower within this 30 mile zone. The underlying reason for this is the large number of union contracts that are involved with all the various skill groups required to make a movie: actors, writers, directors, producers, etc. Each group has their own union, with the potential of costing a company significant dollars if a movie is produced outside of the zone.
