Digital Media Industry in Louisiana

Joshua Fleig

This thesis is a white paper on a wide range of concrete steps the state of Louisiana can take to grow the digital media industry in the state.



Current aggressive tax credits have been passed in the Louisiana Legislature in the past five years in order to lure the entertainment industry to the state. The credits, currently the most valuable of their kind in the country, have been successful enough to propel Louisiana to third, behind NY and L.A., in total productions. My goal is to help develop recent additional tax credits extended to digital and interactive media into a rival success.

Background
The current Louisiana Economic Development council, numerous works and studies on recruiting creative class, Entertainment companies currently operating in Louisiana, all contain a wealth of information.

Implementation
My goal is to prepare both a written study and a presentation that can be used by myself, state and local governments, to educate leaders and policymakers on facts, and ideas for growing the industry.
