The program has grown to include film, television sound recording, live performance and digtial media. This economic activity fuels local buisness and vendors. 

“Since legislative enhancements to the motion picture program in mid 2009, total entertainment spending has steadily risen from almost $446.6 million in 2010 to nearly $851 million in 2013 - with a slight decline to $776.3 million in 2014. By examining this data, it is clear that the program is performing as designed and continues to provide an economic impact to the state.”* -Economic Impact of La.
