We have another studio going in in the Lower Garden District called Second Line Stages. Sorry no site to link you to it. I might have posted about it before. They are gearing up for lower budget, indie features; but I am thinking they will also get a lot of the Lifetime, Hallmark, and other MOW's that come to town.
The Nims Center
is right around from us though as well. Imagination Movers has the main part right now, but there is another office and stage facility attached to it.
There is also a new place called Nola Films
. Little further away from us.
There is a building though out here in Harahan/Elmwood (suburbs of New Orleans), old coffee bean warehouse, I would love to purchase and turn into a studio. We used it for FD4 and it was used for K-Ville. Building needs some work, but the layout is pretty damn great for a studio.
Last week's Prod Weekly had two more pics slated for Louisiana. Haven't seen this week's yet.
