Incentives Scorecard: Louisiana Becomes Busy Production Hub

Lousiana Film Production Tax Incentives
Variety

Despite recent limits, Louisiana’s 13-year-old incentive has attracted so many films and TV shows that the state has become one of the busiest production hubs, behind California and New York. Soundstages have been built, and a vibrant industry community has taken root, attracting such L.A.-based standard-bearers as Panavision and Chapman/Leonard alongside homegrown operations like Southern Costume Co. Another lure: At the end of a long day of shooting, cast and crew can enjoy some Louisiana cuisine.

    Louisiana still needs the Los Angeles crew leaders.
    In 13 years they have not learned how to make a feature film set.
    If the los angeles crews boycotted the runaway tax states they would shut them down
    NO BALLS LOS ANGELES IATSE LOCALS

    Louisiana is doing it big with the incentives. Interesting to watch how effective they are at luring productions and support industries.
