Signs - Filming Tomorrow and Wednesday in the LSU Footprint

I have not yet called 504-799-0121 to find out what production is actually filming in the area along Palmyra Street near McDonogh No. 11 School.  Here's what's currently in production around town.

I would point out that the State of Louisiana does not yet own the streets in the area.  If any filming is occurring on properties that were acquired or expropriated by the state for the UMC project, I would demand that any and all profits gained by the state or its contractors from filming be disgorged and distributed to those residents and businesses who were forced from the footprint due to the hospital project.

That's especially true if a given property being used for filming would not have been available in its current state but for the unnecessary displacement.
