In Part I of a recent Google Hangout webcast, Chris Stelly, Exec. Director of the Entertainment Louisiana Economic Development discussed the exploding Louisiana film industry ranked number one in the world for movie filming due, in large part to a very generous tax incentive program introduced to the state in the early 2000's. In part II, Stelly explains the Digital Media Interactive program, which likewise offers very attractive tax incentives to software developers for work performed in the state.
Joining Stelly in the webcast, which is below, are Ronnie Bincer, Wayne Nix and Bayoubuzz Publisher Stephen Sabludowsky.
It was Louisiana entertainment and technology meeting Google Hangout advocates on Thursday as ideas and opportunities were added to a roux of “making business” Google Hangout and Louisiana style.
Louisiana Entertainment Industry is "Red-Hot"
The Louisiana Film Industry is now considered to be the top location site in the world.
Digital Media is becoming a powerful and quite important industry throughout the world and especially in Louisiana.
The Louisiana film industry has matured and is doing better than ever.
In my opinion, Chris Stelly might have one of the most fun jobs in Louisiana state government. He is the Director of Entertainment for Louisiana Economic Development.
