What is the TMZ?

A lot of people think that TMZ is just a channel or show when in fact it’s an acronym for Thirty Mile Zone. This comes from the movie studios in Hollywood getting together with the labor unions to define a 30-mile zone with an epicenter at the corner of Beverly Blvd and La Cienega Bl – where the offices for the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers used to be. Any production work done outside this zone is considered a “long-distance location”.

As a Location Scout working in Los Angeles it’s important to always check that a location lies within this zone. And the best way to do that is with Film LA’s handy tool:
