Burbank and The Valley
Glendale and Studio City

From the start Burbank was one of those places the movie studio wanted to settle. The first owner of the first Hollywood  studio, David Horsley, bought a large tract of land to build one of the first studio ranches.  Its next door neighbor, Glendale, was one of the original stopping points for the movies.  Today they are both powerhouses of studio life.  Warner and Disney are still in Burbank.  Disney also has a massive campus in Glendale, and Glendale is the base for DreamWorks Animation.

The Burbank area was long a favorite for movie makers.  Close to the services in Hollywood and plenty of open spaces for shooting cowboy westerns.  It was only natural that actual studios would follow.  Now, as then, Burbank encourages the film companies.

Today, in addition to major studios, Burbank and Glendale host several smaller studios and production facilities.  These include The Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, DreamWorks Animation, Quixote, Studio Production Studios, and many others.  Burbank takes no backseat to Hollywood in the entertainment industry.
