Anybody wanting to know about TurnKey Louisiana, a Shreveport-based vendor of film equipment and services, should attend the following meeting on Tuesday. The company's co-founder, Gary M. Strangis, is pictured here.
Below is a note from John Grindley, executive director of the Robinson Film Center:
"Gary Strangis, co-founder and owner of TurnKey Louisiana, will speak at the Shreveport/Bossier Louisiana Produces meeting on Oct.3 at BPCC (Building D), 7 p.m. TurnKey is a new company, based in Shreveport, that will facilitate production in Louisiana by providing state-of-the-art equipment and special services to the filmmaking community. TKLA offers an 'in-state spend,' helping to maximize the tax incentive and grow the infrastructure needed in Louisiana.
"Strangis recently moved from Los Angeles to Shreveport. He and his L.A. based partner, Bernie Laramie ('CSI,' 'Profiler'), provide a consortium of Hollywood vendors that bring workflow solutions from pre-production to post and delivery. Strangis is an Emmy winning Producer for 'The Practice' and has worked on 'Ally McBeal,' 'Summerland,' and 'Faith of My Fathers' to name a few.
"I hope you can join us! I apologize for the short notice. Come out and show your support because he’s really invested in building the infrastructure for the film industry that we desperately need."
