Score New Orleans Kicks Off
With Madea's Family Reunion

One of the first projects brought back to New Orleans after the state of Louisiana's groundbreaking tax incentives to help invigorate the music industry went into effect was the recording of the underscore for the film Madea's Family Reunion by New Orleans natives, composer Elvin Ross and filmmaker Tyler Perry. The session was a resounding success (as was the film) and in fact showed what could be done in New Orleans even under some difficult circumstances.

Since that first orchestral scoring session, many others have come to Louisiana and New Orleans to take advantage of not only the local musicians, studios and of course the native culture and cuisine, but also the very competitive rates and innovative tax incentives that make it a true destination for the recording of music for film, television, video game and multi-media projects, with final costs lower than recording anywhere else in the United States, and most other locations throughout the world.
