Did you catch today's excerpt from Adam Kealoha Causey's city council story?
"Councilman Calvin Lester has proposed local incentives for the film industry.
"Among them: Up to $150,000 from city coffers for first-time movie, TV commercial or music video productions that spend up to $300,000 in Shreveport on lodging, equipment or space rental and other supplies.
"Essentially, the city would return sales tax revenue the companies spent, Lester said."
Causey will continue to follow the story this week. Keep your eye on it.
It's an interesting development, in light of the 3 percent tax rebate offered in Jefferson Parish, which is capped $100,000 for most projects.
It's also intriguing, when you consider this story about the development of the Louisiana Film Studios in Elmwood.
The incentives discussion, and intrastate competitiveness, is heating up.
