Place-Based Artistic Storytellers
New Orleans has much more of a filmic quality and community than I originally realized. Yes, the culturally literate (culturally pretentious ?) dub New Orleans the “new Hollywood,” but there are so many people involved in film and media that actually live and work here (as opposed to those who film and leave). We’ve met and interacted with a variety of people involved in media and film in and around New Orleans. So “Place-Based Storytelling” has become place-based artistic storytellers. Katrina didn’t wipe it all out, after all.
