Incentives Scorecard: Louisiana Becomes Busy Production Hub

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.
