Don’t Spend More on your Film Education if You Don’t Have to

Shreveport, Louisiana is a city of about 200,000 people, located in far northwest Louisiana near the Texas and Arkansas borders. Shreveport is quite possibly the film-friendliest city within the film-friendliest state in the U.S., outside of Los Angeles and New York. Not only is Louisiana aggressively attracting film production with extremely generous tax incentives, but Shreveport has gone the extra mile by providing a helpful film office, as well as numerous sound stages and filming locations around town. If you desire a career in filmmaking as a film producer, film director, or film editor–but would rather avoid relocating to Los Angeles or New York–you could not ask for a more prime location than Shreveport.
