In a Recession, Homeowners Want Film & Porn Shoots for $$$

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

It's always been a way to make some extra cash in Los Angeles. Get your home listed with location scouting agencies and someday a film crew will come to you and pay you for the use of your house. Now that time are tough, more people want in, even if it means some porno action, which can earn up to $5,000 a day (stain fee?). The good news is that the money you earn is not taxable unless you have more than 15 days of film shoots. But that won't be a problem--shooting in Los Angeles is considerably down.
