While local film production has exploded and Hollywood has infiltrated the city, post-production, specifically sound production, has lagged. But there's a new facility in town, which is now the largest recording studio in the state. This may change the game when it comes to audio for big time film projects.

This week on Inside the Arts we'll find out how two Brazilian night club owners are promoting New Orleans throughout their home country. We'll look at the connection between the BP oil spill and a major arts center. Is there a silver lining? And, we'll take a walk on the wild side as we trek into the woods for a magical celebration of art and nature.
