We have a one hour Powerpoint presentation on Louisiana Film History covering from 1896 to 2010. We make this available to educational institutions and interested groups to bring more attention to the tremendous contributions that Louisiana has made both to and on the film industry.
Here is a little background on the presentation:
We personally collect film posters made in or about Louisiana, and have been for over 30 years. As we were doing research to see what was actually made here and where, we were astonished at the lack of any documentation. So, we have slowly been compiling and searching through newspapers, trade magazines and any other place we could find information.
With the state making such tremendous strides to make Louisiana a major film production state, we thought that it was time to release our records to bring more attention to all the past accomplishments and films that had been produced here. This is why we released our book Hollywood on the Bayou.
To promote the book, we created a presentation on Louisiana Film History and presented it at a lecture and exhibit at the Jefferson Parish Regional Library .
Due to the lack of any real information on the topic available to the public, the presentation was received far better than we had anticipated. So, we continued to improve and expand the presentation as it continues to draw more attention on its own.
