We are endlessly fascinated by the television and film industry here in Louisiana, and with good reason. More films are being produced in our state than in Hollywood, and it has become one of the top industries in the Bayou State. So, it's no surprise that alot of movies have been shot here. But even I didn't know about some of the ones below, from the folks at Only in Louisiana. I've also included a few of my own favorites, and a trailer from a film you probably DID know was filmed here, below. Have you seen any of these?
