City issues filming notice for Bywater residents

Today, the Mayor's Office of Cultural Economy issued a filming notice to New Orleans residents and businesses in the Bywater area.

On Friday, July 5th, a production company will be filming scenes at the Naval Support Activity site on Dauphine Street. From approximately 5pm to 5am, filming will involve a small amount of simulated gunfire. Filming will be limited to the Naval Support Activity site.

Film New Orleans assists productions with the City's permitting process, connects productions with local crew and resources, and facilitates communication between productions and the local community.
