$15M film complex planned in St. Rose
Quixote Studios, a Los Angeles-based production services company, is breaking ground on a $15 million sound stage and "film campus" project in St. Rose.
New Orleans CityBusiness reports the first two phases are scheduled for completion in early 2013 and include two stages with 30,000 square feet of space.
Quixote CEO Mikel Elliott says the company opened a studio shop in New Orleans last year and moved to the St. Rose location two months ago.
The second phase entails two more 30,000-square-foot stages and is expected to be complete in 2014.
Elliott said his company eventually wants to land a long-term television show.
