Hollywood comes to Glasgow

Leiths, Markon 

Over the last five years Markon’s Traffic Management Division has been part of several high-profile Hollywood feature films such as Fast & Furious, Hobbs & Shaw and Tetris as well as TV series such as the award-winning BBC drama Vigil and Britbox’s thriller Crime.

The last 10 months has seen a further increase for the division’s filming portfolio with some of Hollywood’s elite productions such as Disney and Warner Brothers employing the division to undertake filming within Glasgow City Centre.

In June 2021, Walt Disney Pictures commenced production of the new Indiana Jones 5 movie which saw parts of the city transformed into 1960s New York as Apollo astronauts return home and resulted in approximately two months’ worth of works for street prep and shooting.

These works also had an overlap in July with filming for Warner Brothers who also started production on their feature film, The Flash. This production was primarily stunt based which saw regular high speed chases including scenes involving Batman.

Having two major productions on at the same time was extremely challenging as they are extremely fluid and requirements changed almost daily.

Having successfully delivered these two major filming productions, Warner Brothers subsequently brought the division onboard for their next production within the city, Bat Girl. This was the biggest and longest production to ever film in Glasgow with production commencing in November 2021 and only just wrapping at the end of March 2022. This involved over 40 locations, some with multiple visits.
