Louisiana’s fiber optic network to rally for Hollywood’s dollars

posted by Michael Zoldessy on December 14, 2006 at 6:30 am

In an effort to attract more film shoots to the state, Louisiana is leading the charge to have its new high-speed network available to filmmakers.

With Louisiana bent on luring all of the movie-making business it can, LONI could be the state’s star behind the big screen.

Louisiana might make its ultrahigh-speed computer network available to production companies to promote growth in the movie industry. The move could speed the movie-making process in this state.

Digital footage, like dailies or extremely large digital animation files, could be transferred from Louisiana to Los Angeles in a matter of seconds or minutes rather than hours or overnight.

How common is it now for filmmakers to rent movie theaters for screenings of dailies when filming on location outside of larger populated areas?

I had read about them doing this recently during a film shoot in Stamford, Connecticut and wondered how common a practice it is.

Thank You.

P.S.—35mm movie cameras all currently have a videoplayback system attached. Does any of that currently get downloaded elsewhere to film producers, executives, etc???
