LOS ANGELES (AP-LA TIMES) — The makers of an anti-Muslim film that sparked violent protests had a one-day permit to shoot parts of the movie at a Los Angeles County ranch and were allowed to use animals and fire. In the document released Thursday September 20th, 2012 by FilmLA, the group that handles permits for the county, the movie later known as “Innocence of Muslims” is listed as “Desert Warriors” and its production company as Media for Christ. A $1,195 permit allowed a shoot at Blue Cloud Ranch with 20 actors and 20 crew. Also allowed were the use of animals within regulations and burning torches and barrels to “simulate a building on fire.”
See pdf version of the Permit, the Media For Christ group had to provide proof of insurance, this would have had to be done by the president of the comapny Joseph Nassralla, http://s3.documentcloud.org/documents/436560/desert-warriors-permit.pdf
Both Media for Christ and The Way TV are run by Joseph Nassralla Abdelmasih aka Joseph Nassralla of Arcadia CA who is listed as chief executive officer for both entities, and president of Media for Christ public records show, he and only he would have been able to pull the permit for the filming of the movie “Innocence of Muslims”.
89.3 KPCC RADIO: The organization that received the film permit for a movie believed to be the controversial “Innocence of Muslims” was Duarte, Calif.-based nonprofit advocacy group Media for Christ. Karen Herrera, deputy city manager for the City of Duarte, told KPCC that Media for Christ received a permit last year for a movie called “Desert Warriors” through Film LA, an organization that gives film permits for the County of Los Angeles. Herrera said she was told that information from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department. People involved in the film believe “Desert Warriors” later became “Innocence of Muslims.”
Permit confirmed: Paul Audley, president of Film LA, confirmed to KPCC on Friday that the permit was issued on Aug. 18, 2011. He referred further questions to the County of Los Angeles, which said it would not release the film permit due to safety concerns.
