Indie Movie Shot at the Toy Factory LOFTS

Toy Factory Developer Makes Indie Movie About Moving to DTLA









This is a new level in neighborhood marketing: Leonard Hill, one of the principals at Linear City, the company behind the Arts District’s Toy Factory and Biscuit Lofts has produced a movie called Dorfman in Love, “about a woman “whose life is transformed when she leaves a dreary existence taking care of her father in the San Fernando Valley and moves into a downtown loft to cat-sit for a friend.” (Hill is a former producer who actually got started writing for Adam-12.) The LA Times reports the indie, which stars Sara Rue (and Brad Leong and Elliott Gould), “filmed over 20 days in the Toy Factory Lofts (using Hill’s office as a location) and various downtown sites, including the Central Library, the Los Angeles Flower Market, Little Tokyo, Santee Alley, Pershing Square, Angels Flight Railway, Chinatown, Union Station and a subway line.” The subway! That’s some real DTLA cred. Hill says that “Making movies is more fun than making buildings.” Dorfman in Love comes out March 22.
