“Of all the places I have shot films over the years, Shreveport, Louisiana was one of my favorite and one of the best experiences. I had a great Crew and we found every location we needed to make our film. There are also great restaurants and nightlife... I had a lot of fun working there AND we made a great movie in the process!”
