City of New Orleans Issues Filming Notices

April 21, 2014

NEW ORLEANS, LA – Today, the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Economy issued filming notices to New Orleans residents in Central City.

On Wednesday, April 23, 2014 through Friday, April 25, 2014, a production company will be filming scenes in New Orleans’ Central City Neighborhood at the intersection of Oretha Castle Haley Blvd and the Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. The filming activity will include a simulated car crash and simulated gunfire. As a result, the intersection will be closed to vehicular traffic nightly between 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Filming will take place between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. and will be conducted under the supervision of the New Orleans Fire Department, New Orleans Emergency Medical Services and local law enforcement.

Film New Orleans within the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Economy 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 2013, New Orleans hosted 60 tax credit film projects (TV, films, and commercials with budgets over $300,000), with direct spending of $456 million.

For questions about filming in New Orleans, please contact Film New Orleans at (504) 658-0923 or visit www.filmneworleans.org.
