Who Needs L.A. When You’ve Got LA?Regular readers of MovieMaker will know that New Orleans was named the number one city to make movies in our most recent issue.

Located in Northwest Louisiana, the Shreveport-Bossier area has seen a rise in production in recent years, with its substantial talent base, ready availability of equipment and low cost of filming drawing productions as diverse as Battle Los Angeles and Super to the area.
