LOS ANGELES, CA – Amid fears of flying and security concerns at airports worldwide, filmmakers choose Air Hollywood to reach their destinations. What began sluggishly as the world’s largest dedicated aviation-themed studio, has suddenly emerged as the talk of the town as Hollywood productions flock to the airline that hails itself ‘the safest in the world.’
“I would be lying if business was not below expectations but since the tragic events of September 11th, there has been a dramatic increase in production shoots at our studio. Billings have peaked at $10,000 a day and estimated profits are expected to reach half a million dollars for the first year,“ said Talaat Captan, President of Air Hollywood.
Air Hollywood’s growth is supported by its expanding roster of impressive clients, including TV programs such as “ America’s Most Wanted,” “JAG” and “ Providence.” Air Hollywood has also serviced recent feature films such as “Daredevil,” starring Ben Affleck, “Like Mike,” “Not Another Teen Movie,” as well as commercials for Radio Shack and Detrol.
The irony of Air Hollywood’s recent success is coupled with the hope that its recent clientele will raise its profile among studios and production companies seeking the use of airplanes, passenger terminals, security checkpoints, and other settings that are either impossible to access on-location or difficult to recreate. In the post September 11th environment, Hollywood’s elite prefer the smooth ride aboard Air Hollywood, an ‘airline’ that never leaves the ground but gets its clients to their destination on-time and on-budget.
Air Hollywood is a Los Angeles based studio that specializes in aviation-themed production services, including a 200-foot long airport terminal standing set, several commercial airplane interiors, executive jet mock-ups, cockpits, props and stock footage.
