Saw them shooting a film last week uptown by Broadway.

Watched the Green Lantern DVD last week too and they made NEW look pretty good.

Also remember reading that in 2010 more movies filmed in NO than in LA.

Speaking of which...any must see N.O productions? Always had a soft spot for N.O and movies/series set there, 'A love song for bobby long' being a personal favorite of mine, all categories. A great and underrated film IMO.

As happened everywhere else, the incentives will eventually disappear and so will the film industry.
You're not the CEO; you were a menial aircraft support mechanic intern, and that was four years ago.
