Back from a short trip to California to promote the generous subsidies Louisiana offers to film and TV productions, Gov. John Bel Edwards says he expects the movie-making industry to continue to grow here.
After a visit to Los Angeles, where Gov. John Bel Edwards met with eight major film production companies, the governor said he feels confident more filmmakers will flock to Louisiana using its film tax credit.
Confidence in Louisiana’s film industry is coming back, and Scott Niemeyer, founder and CEO of Algiers’ Deep South Studios, is enthusiastic about praising the state’s efforts to proclaim to all that Hollywood South is here to stay.
Deep South Studios, a TV, film and digital media production facility in Algiers, has opened for business with its first tenant. Production Resource Group, a global entertainment and live event production services company, is the first to move into the facility at 1200 Mardi Gras Blvd.
Scott Niemeyer, the founder and CEO of Deep South Studios, said his production facility, the largest purpose-built film, television and digital media studio in the Southeast, is ready for its close up.
