Get up to speed on the latest production news at the Louisiana Produces meeting. It's scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday (Oct. 2) at Bossier Parish Community College's Building D. As always, bring a pen and don't write on your neighbor.
The featured speaker will be Gary Strangis (pictured), who's been in The Shreve since Hollywood discovered us two years ago. (Lucky dog!) Here's his bio, courtesy the Robinson Film Center:

He has shared wins with his producing teams for the Golden Globe Award, the Producers Guild of America Norman Felton Award, the George Foster Peabody Award, the Humanitas Award, and been nominated for countless other honors from such groups as the Directors Guild of America.
