LA Times: L.A.'s entertainment job market shows new strength

Good news for a change:

"Hollywood's jobs picture has brightened considerably over the last two months.

The film, television and music industries in Los Angeles County generated 131,600 jobs in March, up 7.9% from February and 12.6% from the same month a year ago, according to the latest state employment data compiled by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp.

The figures -- which do not count those who work as freelancers or independent contractors -- show a marked turnaround from January, when employment in the motion picture and sound recording sector plunged to just 106,500 jobs, the lowest level since January 2001.

In fact, March's jobs total was the highest level in L.A.'s entertainment sector since late 2008, noted Robert Kleinhenz, chief economist for the LAEDC.,6682377.story

Its almost suggesting that its picking up in other areas of production-but not necessarily VFX. But from the outside looking in it all looks the 'same' to the media.

But one can hope it helps *everyone*...

not really, it doesn't include freelancers and independent contractors, or in other words most VFX artists.
