Filming At Lafayette Cemetery
Dear Garden District Residents,
We will be filming scenes in your neighborhood on Friday Sept 1, 2017. We thank you for the opportunity to film in your neighborhood. We realize that you may have had a great deal of filming in the past and that it can sometimes be a nuisance. We would like to make this a positive experience for you. Our main company will move in and begin filming in the area from approximately 10am-10pm. On the day of filming our crew parking and base camp will be situated in private lots to minimize our impact in the area. All driveways and handicap zones will be respected. We work closely with Film New Orleans to help ensure that we adhere to the standards they have set forth. We will have police on hand as well as security throughout this process. If you have any specific parking concerns, contact us as soon as possible with any special needs so that we might come up with some creative solutions to address said concerns. If you have any loud construction work or large deliveries scheduled for the day in question, please let us know in advance so we can accommodate your needs.
Parking will be affected on the following streets from 7am to 7pm on Thursday Aug 31 to Monday Sept 4, 2017 (EXCLUDING WEEKENDS):
Both sides 2800 Block of Prytania St
Parking will also be affected on the following streets from 12am to 11:59pm on Friday Sept 1, 2017:
Both sides 2900-2800 Blocks of Prytania St
Both sides 1400 Block of Sixth St
Both sides 1400 Block of Washington St
There will also be ITC (Intermittent Traffic Control) between the hours of 10am and 10pm, excluding rush hour times, at the intersection of Washington St and Prytania St, and Colliseum St and Washington St on Friday Sept 1, 2017.
We endeavor to make this as pleasant an experience as possible as the key to continuing Louisiana’s role as a premier filming destination is community involvement and support. The film industry creates a wealth of local jobs and opportunities in communities across Louisiana. We are excited to play a part in this growth and productivity. We are looking forward to our upcoming work in the neighborhood. We thank you so much for your hospitality & patience. Do not hesitate to contact us at any time with whatever questions.
