Film production in and around Los Angeles grew by about 5 percent during the first quarter of this year.

That's according to a new report from the non-profit group, Film L.A.

The majority of growth came from location shooting by what observers consider marginal sectors like music and industrial videos and student films.

The number of television productions dropped by 3.7 percent and the number of film productions fell off by more than 5 percent.
