Can you get red beans and rice during your film school lunch break? Now you can. Because we’ve brought film school to Baton Rouge. We’ll partner you up with a real-life working show business mentor who will be your personal tour guide through your courses. At the end of the eight months, you’ll know more than any of your film school buddies who spent tons of cash and time sitting through lectures and discussing film theory under fluorescents. Film Connection. No lectures. Just skills.
Some of the well known movies that have been filmed in Baton Rouge and vicinity include: Dead Man Walking, Failure to Launch, Ray (the biopic of Ray Charles), The Dukes of Hazzard, Sex, Lies & Videotape, and classics such as The Long, Hot Summer and Hush…Hush, Sweet Charlotte–just to name a few. Additionally, several films are already scheduled or are in production in the area, including the next installment of the Twilight movies and Battleship.
