BR Film Commission redesigns website

The Baton Rouge Film Commission has launched a rebranding that includes a logo and website redesign.

The new website, www.filmbatonrouge.com, has tools for incoming productions and their staff, as well as Baton Rouge residents. The site, which is easier to navigate, can be viewed across all platforms, including personal computers, iPads, tablets and mobile devices.

For example, a “Film Makers” page displays pertinent information such as permitting, production essentials and Louisiana’s tax incentives and has a production guide.

The site also has specific information for local cast and crew about casting calls, crew availability and with an opportunity to be listed in the Baton Rouge Production Directory.

In addition, the website has a section devoted to getting locals involved in the film industry, with information about film screenings, acting classes, ‘extra’ opportunities and videos of panel experts.

The new website still offers location services both online and with the By Baton Rouge iPhone app.
