Baton Rogue a buzz about 'Breaking Dawn' filming & Twihards~WBRZ News 2

Pre-production (reported earlier this week) is underway in Baton Rogue, LA and local news channels are already starting to cover the buzz. There is some good info in this video about sets being made and where.

Watch the video here.

For confidentiality reasons, we can't talk specifics about productions that we're dealing with," said Patrick Mulhearn, Director of Studio Operations at Celtic Studios.

"Well, there's not too much I can say about the details of 'Twilight,'" said Chris Stelly, Director of Film Industry Development with the Louisiana Economic Development.

While the movie's publicist will only say the "when" for production kickoff is late this fall, a commercial real estate agent says one of his lease properties is where pre-production is in full swing.

"'Twilight' is going to do most of their production in Baton Rouge indoors, so they are leasing part of the building for offices, art studio, etc.," said Mark Hebert with Kurtz & Hebert Commercial Real Estate.

That building is the old Coca Cola plant on Airline Highway. It's across the street from Celtic Studios, where the film "The Big Valley" is just ramping up, and the production for "Battle: Los Angeles" recently wrapped. Whether or not "Twilight's" last installment, "Breaking Dawn," is coming to Celtic, the studio says big bucks follow big projects.

"Each production is like a small army, so you're having to feed a small army, you're having to house them, you're having to entertain them," said Mulhearn.

In the case of "Twilight," Baton Rouge will also benefit from the twi-hards.

"What you'll see is much like what 'Steel Magnolias' did for Natchitoches," said Stelly. "People go to Natchitoches to this day to see the house in 'Steel Magnolias.'"

The Baton Rouge area is counting on it.

"'Twilight,'" said Stelly, "it's gonna be a great addition to our cannon."

Well. What can I say. Why should I win the golden pass? Well I never was that much into reading. Until Twilight was published. I've always been into the supernatural so this was perfect for me. A teenage romance between a human and a vampire (My ultimate favourite supernatural beings). I thought what a twist and a great idea to put them both together..and more...fall in love. I was really intrigued by the idea of such a story. So I watched Twilight in the Cinema and of course LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT! So I then bought the Twilight saga books. And for the first time in my life I read the whole of the book to the very end. I just could not put it down. I have always been interested in being an author myself and Stephanie Meyer has really inspired me to write my own stories now. Well I admit to not having a lot of Twilight Fan Stuff. I have 2 posters, A New Moon T-Shirt. The Twilight Saga Books plus The Twilight Animated Version and The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner and Twilight and New Moon on D.V.D, Twilight Badges and finally a Cross-Stitch I had done of the New Moon Book Front Cover but to go to the Convention and meet the characters that made my leisure time mean more to me than anything, would be a DREAM, A FANTASY for me. Something I'd never imagined i would ever be able to go to EVER! I really hope you pick me. It would be the most FANTASTIC and the most MEMORABLE moment of my entire life! xx x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x all my love x x x x x xx x x x Louise M Jeavons x x x xx x x x xx x x x xx x xx x x x x TWIFAN FOREVER!
