Movie Set

Louisiana has just been named the best state to film movies; this according to film industry magazine P3 Update. The Pelican State also made their list of top 10 locations worldwide.

The list, which is compiled once a year, takes in account several factors including tax incentives, crew base, talent infrastructure and popularity among filmmakers.

“Louisiana is the leader of the pack,” says producer Dana Claire. “Some very large films can go there because [the state’s] infrastructure and crew base have become so deep. Shreveport, Baton Rouge and New Orleans all have stages. I would say that, outside of California and New York, it’s the third-largest provider of feature films.”

Recent productions in Louisiana include: Green Lantern, Battleship, Catch .44, The Mechanic, Jeff Who Lives at Home, Welcome to the Rileys, The Last Exorcism, Red, The Expendables, The Road, Jonah Hex, I Love You Phillip Morris, “Treme” and “Imagination Movers.”
