Nevada welcomes Hollywood, employment opportunities

Sure, bumping into Robert DeNiro, Bradley Cooper or Morgan Freeman can be exhilarating.

But something else happens when the big names are working in Las Vegas. The city's film industry professionals get work, location fees are paid and production rentals are secured.

Can anybody say ka-ching?

In fiscal year 2012, 520 total productions were shot in Nevada, up from 479 the year before. Total production revenue for fiscal year 2012, which ended June 30, was $88.78 million, down from $102.53 million in fiscal 2011.

In California, 284 feature films were shot entirely or partially in the state during 2011. In general, the entertainment industry spends $30 billion per year in California. Numbers for 2012 weren't available, and the California Film Commission doesn't track the total number of television shoots.
