Love your piece on Nic Pizzolatto. As a Hollywood screenwriter/indie director now living in Erath, Louisiana (married a Louisiana girl) I loved seeing Erath featured in True Detective. I don’t think they actually shot here but it did capture the essence of our little town. I’ve made a few films in Louisiana before and after the tax incentives took it by storm. It is a unique place to work…and live. And the stories I have found here are just as unique. From the infamous New Orleans “Projects”, to the musical underbelly, to organized crime, to the ridiculous politics, to the quirky rural landscape, I’ve discovered stories you can’t find anywhere else, especially Los Angeles. Thanks for sharing the interview, it really spoke to me.
My name is Mitchell. As I sit here exiled by circumstance in Lake Charles, it’s nice to know the kind of talent surrounding me. There’s a story that needs telling — one about the Louisiana my father grew up in the late ’50s. If I was pitching his story in L.A. I’d probably be tempted to say something like, “It would be like the “The Outsiders” meets Opelousas” and, if they knew what “The Outsiders” was would have that film’s grosses pulled and pass on the project. But I’m not pitching it in L.A.
Note Doc. #426884.
This was signed by the governor at the encouragement of numerous local legislators. Want to bet Sen. Riser wrote a letter? It is public record.
I found your site today and I think that we have the same level of enthusiasm for the direction of our state government. I read your pieces on HB 388 which were well done. The peice on Jindal devolving into Mr. Hyde was also excellent.
Good for you!
Love the new banner. Thanks Cayman Clevenger
Moved back to Louisiana after 20 years away; you are a breath of fresh air in the dense smog of Republicons here in Ouachita Parish.
