The Shreve makes The Post

Yolanda Young wrote a piece about the rise of Shreveport for The Washington Post. She offers some great analysis on how the city's movie fortune came by way of the Big Easy's tragedy. She wrote:

"Shreveport's history is likely to mirror that of Oakland, Calif. Before the great earthquake of 1906, Oakland was anonymous, but it doubled in size and gained a national profile when residents of San Francisco fled there after their city was devastated. San Francisco quickly regained its stature, but it gave Oakland a chance to grow."

Tax incentives offered by the state government have given Shreveport the third largest film industry in the country, behind California and New York, and lead to its nickname of Hollywood South. Shreveport is no exception and has seen a number of films made in the city. Facilities include sound stages, the State Fair of Louisiana Fairgrounds Complex, and the Louisiana Wave Studio, a computer controlled outdoor wave pool.
