why do we need exposure? just asking.

It not the exposure that's important, it's the job creation. Yes, filming can be a hassle at times, but we have to keep our eye on the bigger picture. Whether you're in the industry or not - filming is great for our economy. My family loves to see it, and welcome it.

It would be great exposure if something in the commercial indicated the filming location, but the commercials never do. At least in the film end credits there is mention given.

In the new Wendy's Commercial you can definitely tell it is FairOaks because you see Ai and the Rialto in the background!

A friend of mine in Silver Lake got $100 just for keeping her porch light on all night for some shoot on her sidewalk. That's sure some easy money!
