Oliver Stone

Director (W)

“We had a productive and excellent experience in Shreveport in 2008. People were extremely supportive, facilities were excellent, traffic was light, the extras were highly accommodating, and the casting provided a wide range of talent all the way from Dallas to New Orleans.”

Renny Harlin


“Of all the places I have shot films over the years, Shreveport, Louisiana was one of my favorite and one of the best experiences. I had a great crew and we found every location we needed to make our film. There are also great restaurants and nightlife. I had a lot of fun working there AND we made a great movie in the process!”

Michael “Mick” Flannigan


“I’ve produced 6 films in Shreveport and can’t think of a better city to shoot in. The city bends over backwards to help film makers realize their dream. The infrastructure and growing crew base is top notch. It’s a very easy to navigate and has a diverse look in terms of locations. It’s my second home and look forward to shooting my next project there.”

Matthew F. Leonetti


“Shreveport-Bossier offers many looks and can double for a variety of cities. In addition, the crew base is on par with the top crews throughout the country and Canada. I also feel that the local community embraces the film industry, which makes for a very nice working environment.”

Jeffrey Chernov

Line Producer & Tommy Harper, Unit Prod. Manager (Battle :Los Angeles)

“Every film has a particularly difficult location. For Battle: Los Angeles we needed a freeway shutdown for a month. When no other city could deliver, Shreveport-Bossier did.”

Joel Schumacher

Director (Trespass)

“Making movies in Shreveport-Bossier is an absolute pleasure. The talent and professionalism of the local crew can match that of any city in the world. As if that wasn’t enough to make me want to work down there on every movie I do for the rest of my career, the community welcomes you with wide open arms and truly personifies the term ‘Southern Hospitality.'”

David R. Ellis

Director (Shark Night 3D)

“Shreveport-Bossier is the perfect place to film a movie. It has amazing locations, first class crews, hotels, restaurants, activities, and the most accommodating and friendly people in the U.S.”
