Located in the southwest corner of Louisiana near the lake of the same name, the city of Lake Charles hosts a population of about 71,000 people.  It's located near the beautiful Gulf Coast, and is conveniently close to major cities like Baton Rouge, New Orleans and the Houston/Galveston area of Texas, making it a great area for location filming. In addition, Lake Charles benefits from Louisiana's film-friendliness, with both state and local film offices to facilitate shooting and generous tax incentives to encourage filmmakers to come here. If you are considering a career in filmmaking as a film director, film producer, film editor, or cameraman, FILM CONNECTION can help you tap into these connections without having to relocate somewhere like Los Angeles or New York.
