Film production is up in the Media City. It’s been very busy over at the Burbank Police film permit office. Norma Brolsma has been running the operation for years. “Drowning in work,” Brolsma said last Thursday in an email. She wasn’t complaining, just describing how robust the permit business is in Burbank . So far this year, 500 Burbank permits have been issued and the demand is very strong this summer. Brolsma says”… requests are mostly (for) TV, Cable Shows, Commercial(s) and 1/3 of the totals are for students.”
By this time last year, the number of Burbank permits handed out had reach only 333. More production shooting on Burbank streets means more jobs and business for the locals.
