City issues filming notice

March 22, 2013

NEW ORLEANS, LA—Today, the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Economy issued a filming notice to New Orleans residents on the West Bank.

On Monday, March 25th through Friday, March 29th, a production company will be filming scenes in and around 2420 Murl Street in Algiers.

On Tuesday evening, from approximately 8pm to 11pm, filming will involve simulated gunfire and special effects explosions.  Filming will be limited to private property and will not necessitate street closures. Uniformed officers and fire personnel will be on location to monitor 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 2012, New Orleans hosted 61 tax credit film projects (TV, films and commercials with budgets over $300,000), with direct spending of $669.8 million. In 2011, the City hosted 46 tax credit projects with an estimated $544 million in direct spending.

For questions about filming in New Orleans, please contact Katie Williams at Film New Orleans within the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Economy at (504) 658-0923.
