Local Beach Among L.A.'s Top Filming Location for 2012

This local beach is the most filmed location after Point Dume in Malibu.

Dockweiler State Beach is the third most filmed location in Los Angeles County, according to a film, television, commercial and music shooting locations analysis.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the Bird Sanctuary area in the  4,210-acre Griffith Park is the most filmed. The park alone generated 409 production days, including visits by "Southland" and "Sons of Anarchy."

("Southland" also shot recently in Silver Lake. See images here.)

The Times reports that Griffith Park is one of eight publicly-owned places on the list compiled by Film L.A. Inc.,  the quasi-public agency that issues filming permits.

Point Dume in Malibu (2), the Sixth Street Bridge (5) and Will Rogers State Beach in the Palisades (8) were others.

A designer to reimagine the iconic Sixth Street Bridge downtown was awarded this fall.

It will be interesting to see if the bridge, featured in "Grease," a recent Green Day video and many other productions, remains popular after the redo.
