You mentioned cross pollination, why don’t you explore that
In this segment of the Bayoubuzz interview with Stephen Sabludowsky, publisher of Bayoubuzz.com, Chris Stelly, the Executive Director of Louisiana Entertainment for LED Louisiana Economic Development talks about cross-pollination of the various Louisiana Entertainment tax credit programs.
Stelly said, his office has recognized “going back, I guess, the past ten years, is that the entertainment industry and just everything, is converging with the use of technology”.
One example, he cites is videogame Assassins Creek, which is “very wildly popular videogame, deeply rooted videogame world” which a feature film is made out of it. Videogame becomes a movie, the movie will record sound but there might be soundtrack or score developed for offstage life, artist will cut songs for video games, movies turn into videogame so there’s a lot cross-pollination that happened in the industry.
The industry players his office deals with have multi-facted divisions. For example, they might be dealing with an artist talking about a Disney feature side, talking to Disney television, Disney interactive, Disney theaters. Their products are multi-facted and they and like to get out to the widest audience possible.
Another example is Circus du Soleil which is clearly is based on life performance, but it uses technology of a highly technical nature to do a lot of things.
The state’s programs are designed to track companies that have multifaceted opportunities.
