About New Orleans

New Orleans is the oldest city in Louisiana, and it was founded back in 1718. It boasts a rich culture and history, which has unfortunately been marred by Hurricane Katrina - one of the deadliest disasters to ever hit America.

The hurricane caused catastrophic damage to New Orleans, and it took years for the city to recover. Despite this tragedy, New Orleans remains a popular tourist destination due to its many picturesque locations - making it perfect for production space rentals. The French Quarter, Jackson Square, and Bourbon Street are among the most well-known locations in New Orleans for production. But it's not only the beautiful areas that make the city so popular for production.

New Orleans also has a strong post-production infrastructure and service providers. From sound design and editing to visual effects and animation, New Orleans has everything producers need to finish their unique projects.

Production Space Options in New Orleans

  • Lighting
    There is a reason the popular cue “Lights, Camera, Action,” still stands. It dates to the early days of cinema when the film requires large amounts of light exposure. The lighting equipment ran hot, and they were only turned on when the director made the cue. These days, lighting continues to be an integral part of the production process, and lists of lighting companies in New Orleans can lease out what you need.

  • Equipment Rentals
    The equipment rental companies in New Orleans provide a lifeline to all types of productions, whether big or small. Buying film equipment is a costly affair, and even big-budget Hollywood productions frequently opt for rentals. From cameras to lenses to lighting and grips; you can get it all at a fraction of the cost from rental businesses.

  • Production Designers
    Production designers create the environment where the magic happens on the screen. They work closely with the art director, and props, makeup, and costume departments to conjure up a look that aligns with the production theme. Lists of professional production designers in New Orleans are ready to help you create your personal screen utopia.

  • Directors
    A director is a person who keeps the wheel moving, so to speak, on a film set. His extensive list of roles includes reading and editing scripts, working with actors to help them interpret their characters, directing the technical crew, and in general, overseeing the production to completion. There are selections of experienced film directors in New Orleans who can help out with your project.

  • Makeup Artists
    There is no shortage of makeup artists in New Orleans who can work on straight makeup looks, cosmetic and corrective enhancements, or special effects transformations. Straight makeup focuses on enhancing an actor’s features while cosmetics and corrective techniques change the actor’s appearance to reflect their on-screen persona. Special effects employ the use of prosthetics, latex foam, and mechanical devices.
