  Potter helps record UK film year
Updated 12 January 2004, 08.27
Potter has boosted the film industry
The third Harry Potter film, Prisoner of Azkaban, helped UK film production spending reach a record high in 2003, according to the UK Film Council.

Hollywood blockbusters like Troy, starring Brad Pitt, also helped the massive 1.17 billion spend.

There were 25% more films made just in the UK, and 85% more foreign film makers used the UK as a location.

Steve Norris, from the Film Council said that the UK was "one of the best places in the world to make a film."

Potter production is continuing, as director Mike Newell is preparing to shoot the fourth film, Goblet of Fire.

Prisoner of Azkaban, which was filmed at Leavesden Studios in Hampshire, is due out in June 2004.
