Two big stories on La. film industry

National Public Radio aired the following today:

"Katrina Fails to Halt Louisiana Film Business"

Lafayette appears to be upping its bid for more movie business:

"Film industry beckons: Lafayette seeks to join ranks of 'Hollywood South'" (The Daily Advertiser)

This is more evidence that Louisiana continues to gain traction in the film industry. The second story also suggests that competition between cities inside Louisiana will continue to heat up.

I think it's important that the different LA cities develop their own localized industry, but ultimately work together to keep attracting productions - which I know they're trying to do. Now that Katrina has de-centralized the industry from New Orleans, every city/town should be able to get in on the action. Good luck to Lafayette, but even if NO & SBC remain the tops dogs, the whole state is still benefiting.
