Get ready for a movie production boom in New Orleans. Second Line Stages, the first independent green soundstage in the country, is officially open. 

It's more than 200 thousand square feet of work space - a state of the art, first of its kind in the country - right in the lower garden district. "I think New Orleans should be very proud of it as well as what they've been able to accomplish to bring a full service production facility to New Orleans." Kevin Murphy is the Studio Director at Second Line Stages - the first LEED certified studio in the country. That means the facility is environmentally green. "It's in terms of the building methods and the sustainability of the products you use in the building," he says.
