It has been stated that Anthony’s passion for producing and film/television development motivated this major move.

The establishment of the Studio will help the state of Louisiana break further into the film and television industry. Also giving them more leverage to embark within it’s own signature lane for opportunities in areas such as intellectual property, development, production and marketing.

Mayor LaToya Cantrell and City Councilman Oliver Thomas are welcoming Anthony’s efforts and have even publicly expressed their support.

“Years ago, we talked about us being Hollywood South. I think maybe we’re finally in a position to make it happen and for New Orleans East to be the foundation for that to happen,” said Thomas. “To have Captain America and his brand and his star power I think it helps to support all the other investments.”

We absolutely love this! Ain’t nothing better than Ownership within the Black community and this is overall a major move for the city of New Orleans!
