Today's Globe and last weeks' edition of the WBUR program "Radio Boston" both look at the increased activity of the movie industry here in Allston and Brighton. Radio Boston explains that the recent boom in movies being filmed in Boston is the direct effect of a new state tax credit for the movie industry. Much of the show was taped at Brighton Mills in the former Frugal Fannies space that is owned by Harvard and has been used for at least two movies in the past few months.
The Globe story looks at some of the movie related businesses located along the Mass Pike on Braintree Street in Allston, including the creators of Boston.TV which describes itself as "Boston’s premiere online video entertainment network seeking to both inform and entertain through unique and compelling video content".
