Colloquium: "We were the dog that caught the Cadillac"

We were the dog that caught the Cadillac -- Louisiana as Hollywood South and the Formation of a Regional Film Productions Center through a Motion Picture Incentive Program -- with Chris Lukinbeal

Please join us on Tuesday, September 18 at 3:00 p.m. for the latest installment of our colloquium series. For this talk, we are excited to welcome Chris Lukinbeal from the University of Arizona and his discussion of "Hollywood South."

About the talk:

Louisiana was one of the first states to begin a motion picture incentive program in 2002 to lure film and television production away from Los Angeles. Today, Louisiana and especially its media capital New Orleans is considered "Hollywood South," a dominant film and television production center.
This talk will examine how this regional production center is the outcome of the trend by states and nations to use motion picture incentive programs to encourage runaway production and the outsourcing of labor from Los Angeles since the mid-1990s. This talk will explore the consequences, efficacy, and ethics of Louisiana’s motion picture incentive on the making of Hollywood South and its tenuous future.

Tuesday, September 18, 3:00 - 4:30 p.m.
