Louisiana in Film


We want to share some of the fantastic behind the scenes stories of the Louisiana film industry that are too important to be lost or forgotten. Then throw in some of what's happening behind the scenes.

We have started an e-pub called Louisiana in Film to share some of the details. Grab a cup of coffee (preferably with beignets) and take a closer look at some of them.
