Located in south-central Louisiana, the city of Lafayette is a growing community with a population of about 115,000 people, not including surrounding areas. The city is close to interesting natural scenery, as well as major cities like New Orleans and Baton Rouge, making it a good hub for location filming–and the warm weather fed by the Gulf of Mexico makes Lafayette good for year-round outdoor film shoots. Lafayette also benefits from the agressive support of state and local film offices, and the state of Louisiana itself is highly film-friendly, offering generous tax incentives for films made in state. These factors all combine to make Lafayette a suprisingly good choice for aspiring film producers, film directors and film editors who desire the opportunities to advance their careers without having to relocate to Los Angeles or New York. 

Just a few of the movies that have been filmed in Lafayette and surrounding regions include Secretariat, The Apostle, The Magician King, Last Getaway, Jonah Hex, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and the classic film Easy Rider, just to name a few. This area is no stranger to television production, either; television shows that have done filming in Lafayette include WWE Smackdown and made-for-TV movies House of Bones and Quantum Apocalypse. 

The significant amount of film and television activity in and around Lafayette, along with its strategic location, make this area a great connection point for both film students and filmmaking professionals.  This is one of the key reasons why our system works–because we pair you with a working film or television professional in a mentor-apprentice (extern) relationship, where you get valuable hands-on training while making vital industry connections.
