Heads up Team!

Filming Notification: Production A (2507 Prytania) March 26-30

Dear Neighbors,
We are preparing to film a major motion picture in and around the New Orleans area over the next few months. 
We are exceedingly grateful to have the opportunity to showcase the many beautifully inimitable locations that New Orleans has to offer and to share her magical grace and charm.
With the cooperation of The City Of New Orleans Office of Film and Television and The Garden District Association; we have been approved for changes to our previous shooting schedule due to weather and other considerations.
On Monday, March 26th we will begin filming at 2507 Prytania Street between 1st and 2nd Streets and will conclude photography on Friday, March 30th. The majority of our work will be day-interior but there are a few night time exterior scenes, in which case, with the assistance of the N.O.P.D., we will implement a street closure/traffic diversion plan on Prytania Street between 1st and 3rd Streets and on 2nd Street between St. Charles and Coliseum Streets on Thursday, March 29th with the possibility of an additional night of exterior filming on Friday the 30th. We will have intermittent traffic control, otherwise, as needed for sound. If you reside within the perimeter of our road closure, please contact Matt McLellan for a resident card for your automobile so that we may assist you through our barricades to your driveway, if you have not yet received one. Please be aware that, due to security concerns, these resident cards are non-transferable and are only intended to allow you access to your driveway and are not for our permitted on street NO PARKING zones.
In order to alleviate congestion and to minimize our eventual footprint in the neighborhood, we have paid to permit NO PARKING signs for what may initially seem an excessive amount of street parking. Rest assured that once our vital equipment is in place and the exterior shots are completed we will release much of the on street parking back to the neighborhood.
