MAGNOLIA PARK DISTRICT — When the owner of Fleet Fueling and Burbank Auto Repair tore down his splintered pylon sign with acrylic facing last year and replaced it with a $16,000 electronic sign, he approached the move as an important business investment. The installation made headlines, as camera crews from Reuters and ABC News made their way to 800 N. Hollywood Way to snap photos of the high-tech display, which digitally displays gas prices with the click of a remote control.

BURBANK — The Burbank City Council voted 4 to 1 Tuesday to adopt a new film ordinance, which will amend the city’s film policy by providing an exemption for filmmakers using hand-held devices. Under the new ordinance, filmmakers using hand-held video cameras will not need a permit as long as they are not obstructing public access. The previous film code did not provide this exemption. In the past, a parent wanting to film his or her child playing soccer at a local park with a hand-held camera would have needed a filming permit under the old ordinance, as indicated by the city attorney’s staff report.

BURBANK — Members of the entertainment industry and community voiced their concerns Tuesday night about proposed changes to the city’s film ordinance, as the City Council considered a plan that would change the permit rules for small-scale filmmakers around the city. Under the proposed ordinance, filmmakers using hand-held cameras would not need to obtain a filming permit to operate on private or public property. As long as the camera operators do not impede access to public property, a permit would not be required.

The prospect of a dwindling California entertainment industry at the hands of runaway production is especially daunting for Assemblyman Paul Krekorian since the local economies in his district, which includes Glendale and Burbank, lean heavily on film and television. As part of his effort to combat the economic problem, Krekorian chairs a select legislative committee on preserving the state entertainment industry, and he’s pushing policy measures that would crack down on intellectual property theft.

Moviegoers who enjoy a good old-fashioned monster movie will definitely get a jolt out of the visually stimulating new release, ?Cloverfield.? It?s a throwback to the heyday of Japanese Godzilla movies, minus the obligatory happy ending. ?Cloverfield? follows a group of hip twentysomething adults in New York City as they celebrate a friend?s going-away party. While one of the partygoers shoots footage of the event, gigantic creatures attack the city. People panic, but the camera never stops rolling, and the entire 84-minute movie is seen from the perspective of a main character?

It’s been a long time coming, but Mark Helfrich has finally hit the big time. The Burbank resident and A-list movie editor landed his first gig as a director this year for the major motion picture “Good Luck Chuck,” starring Jessica Alba and Dane Cook. The film, which hits theaters Friday, is about a man who seems to carry both a blessing and a curse in that any woman who sleeps with him seems to find their true love right afterward. “It’s the best,” Helfrich said, standing in front of a poster for the film at a bus stop at Buena Vista Street and Burbank Boulevard.

BURBANK — High school students began living an examined life Monday as they started the semester with the addition of surveillance cameras in their common areas. Over the summer, 32 cameras were installed at John Burroughs High School and 38 at Burbank High School, said Chuck Colgan, district facilities compliance manager. The cameras will be used mostly as a deterrent for vandalism, theft and other crime on campus as well as a fact-gathering tool for crimes already committed, school administrators said.
