In our state’s history, we’ve had over 2,500 films and tv series shot in Louisiana. That is advertising for our state that doesn’t disappear overnight and helps impact tourism, among other industries. The latest report by the Lt. Governor’s office reflects this, supporting up to $2.5 billion in annual tourism revenue that can be attributed to our industry. In addition, the industry delivered nearly $2 billion in sales to Louisiana businesses, nearly $1 billion in earnings for residents, and supported close to 10,000 jobs over the past two years.
We are poised for greatness as a state in the entertainment industry. Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, Disney, HBO Max, Paramount, and others are household names that are looking to publish more and more content than ever. These same names have all started to shoot productions here and are looking to increase their commitment to content over the coming years.
