Crew union seeking new members

If you've worked on a movie crew in Louisiana for at least 30 days, IATSE Local 478 is requested you join its union. All projects that have filmed in Shreveport recently have been union-based, according to the Shreveport-Bossier Film Office.

Eligible applicants include anyone who has worked on a feature film, TV, video or commercial project. Job titles included gaffers, paramedics, location assistants, set designers, construction workers and more. Check out IATSE Local 478's website for a list of what jobs cut the mustard.

Upcoming feature film shoots for Shreveport include "Blonde Ambition" (end of November), "The Cleaner" (January 2007), "Harold & Kumar Go to Amsterdam" (January 2007) and tentatively "The Last Lullaby" (January 2007).

These movies won't get made by themselves!
