movie facts

Los Angeles, where most of La La Land occurs, is a notable city in the state of California, mostly because of the place being a hub for aspiring individuals who seek their fortune in the arts. Known as the City of Angels, as Los Angeles translates from Spanish, the cultural, financial, and commercial center in Southern California goes by another moniker – the City of Broken Dreams. Roughly 108,640 people are struggling to pursue acting, while only 21,728 of them have found work. Los Angeles is the center of the movie industry and show business. This was mostly due to filmmakers moving to LA in order to get away from The Trust, a collective - established by Thomas Edison in 1909 - of dominant producers, distributors, and manufacturers who wanted to monopolize the film industry. Every single day, over one hundred film and television crews are filming. Besides being a film capital, the city is also the entrepreneurial capital, having around 200,000 small businesses.
