Filming in Louisiana

Louisiana's production industry has suffered after the state film incentive was temporarily suspended througout 2016.  While now reinstated, the incentive has already depleted its funding from the backlog of Producers hoping to sell their tax credits back to the state.

Louisiana's world class infrastructure has helped it to rebuild, attracting a number of notable projects including The Magnificent Seven and superhero flick, Logan.

FilmWorks New Orleans’ flexible studio space will help ensure that we continue to draw major film projects to the area.

George Steiner, President of FilmWorks
