NEW ORLEANS, LA—Today, the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Economy issued a filming notice to New Orleans residents.
A production company will be filming an action sequence in the 300 block of Audubon Boulevard on Thursday, June 28th and Friday, June 29th between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 a.m. (midnight).
There will be intermittent simulated gunfire and pyrotechnic activity.
Uniformed law enforcement and the New Orleans Fire Department will be on scene to ensure safety.
Film New Orleans assists productions with the City’s permitting process, connects productions with local crew and resources, and facilitates communication between productions and the local community.
In 2011, $531 million was spent locally in the film industry during both filming and post-production, contributing significantly to the New Orleans economy by creating jobs.
