Baton Rouge is the state capital of Louisiana, situated in the southeast part of the state and hosting a metro population of nearly three-quarters of a million people. The warm climate, urban environment and proximity to interesting natural scenery make this city a great spot for location filming. Additionally, the state of Louisiana is aggressively film-friendly, offering some of the most generous tax incentives available for filmmakers. Numerous film and TV production companies make their home in Baton Rouge, and major movies, commercials, TV shows and documentaries are filmed all over the area, making it ideal for those filmmakers and film students who want to be part of the industry but would rather not relocate to Los Angeles or New York. If you are considering a career in filmmaking as a film director, film producer, film editor, or cameraman, Baton Rouge is an excellent choice for you–and FILM CONNECTION can help.
