GLASGOW has been the star of many movies and TV shows, even as a double for somewhere else.
In the last year the attention heightened with Hollywood starts Brad Pitt and Halle Berry in town filming their latest movies.
However work has been going on for the last 15 years, bringing film work to the city in the form of movies, adverts and music videos.
The city's diverse architecture means it can double up as an American city, indeed it has been New York, Philadelphia and San Francisco in recent years or it can simply be itself in gritty modern-day drama.
The Glasgow Film Office has built up a reputation of Glasgow being a place to make movies scouting locations and facilitating deals to entice studios to come.
The industry is lucrative and worth an estimated £200m in the last 15 years, but has also provided some young actors and technicians with an opportunity they never expected.
Whether it is a Brad Pitt Holywood Blockbuster or the lower budget but more realist social dramas of Ken Loach Glasgow has proved itself to be an accommodating location.
We can look forward to the Glasgow Film Office bringing more productions to the city and the economic benefits that go with them.
