Before the State of Louisiana limited the savings the film industry enjoyed here, Shreveport was a magnet for big-budget films. Even today, with credits capped, there are still productions all over the ArkLaTex. From Salem to the recently released I Saw The Light, you can run across filming any day, or run into actors any night downtown.

When you look at the Box Office success of the movies that have been filmed in Shreveport, I think studios are still going to push to have filming here. The percentage of films that have raked in cash after executing their craft with the assistance of Shreveport is staggering. Of the Top 50 Box Office movies who filmed in Shreveport, 21 of them have crossed the $20 million mark, and 3 have topped $100 million.
