LOUISIANA FILM PROFESSIONALS
While many people wouldn’t immediately associate Louisiana with the film industry in general, in the past decade or so film production has increased dramatically in the state, thanks in part to generous tax incentives offered for filmmakers. Bearing the nickname “Hollywood South”, Louisiana is currently home to the third largest film industry in the United States, only trailing behind New York and Los Angeles in film production. Shreveport in particular has become a large hub for production, with other hotspots including New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Examples of films shot in Louisiana include The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Guardian, Red, Looper, The Expendables, Green Lantern and many others.
Here on this page you will find featured a number of talented film industry professionals, all of whom received top-shelf training as students of the Film Connection Film Institute in Louisiana.
