Film Commissioner working to hilight Bay County.

Posted: Updated:
Bay County, Fla. -

From movies to television to commercials, it's all in a day's work for a Panama City Beach woman.

As Bay County Film Commissioner Julie Gordon's duties focus on marketing the County to the film industry across the nation and around the world. Julie links production companies with every resource needed from crews, cast, locations and equipment.

 Gordon acted for 13 years as a member of the Screen Actors Guild but after a while she decided she was best suited for work behind the camera and that has led her to actually assume the role of production coordinator when the film companies come to town for various production projects.

 The current project Gordon is involved in is the musical "East Side Story" which is being shot in Panama City Beach. Shooting for the movie should wrap up around the middle of March.
