Active Entertainment has moved into Raleigh Studios at Celtic Media Centre, adding a substantial amount of production space to the Baton Rouge facility.
Active Entertainment has also relocated its post-production facilities to the LITE Center in Lafayette under a deal with the Lafayette Economic Development Authority and the Opportunity Machine, which works to accelerate the growth of technology start-ups.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Active Entertainment as a true anchor tenant to Celtic Media Centre,” Patrick Mulhearn, director of Studio Operations for Celtic Media Centre, said in a news release.
“Their seasoned management team, proven track record and volume of work currently in production and in development make this an exceptionally big win for Raleigh Studios and the Baton Rouge area,” Mulhearn said.
In Lafayette, Active Entertainment is adding staff in development, production, and post-production departments to enhance and enlarge its film activities. It has also added a music division that will be led by Lafayette composer Andrew Morgan Smith.
The music division will be able to score music for feature films to assist producers in qualifying for tax incentives. Projects will continue to be shot at Active’s Lafayette production campus as well as in New Orleans and Baton Rouge.
