City of New Orleans issues filming notice

March 14, 2014

NEW ORLEANS, LA – Today, the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Economy issued filming notice to New Orleans residents in New Orleans East.

On Monday, March 17, 2014 beginning at 9:00 a.m., a production company will be performing a pyrotechnics test consisting of a minor explosion with a minimal concussion on the back lot of the Lake Forest Plaza Shopping Center on Read Blvd. This pyrotechnics test will be conducted under the supervision of the New Orleans Fire Department.

Film New Orleans within the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Economy assists productions with the City’s permitting process, connects productions with local crew and resources, and facilitates communication between productions and the local community.
