LOCATION: 2725 DeSoto Street FILMING DATE: FRIDAY, MARCH 18th
1 PM – 11 PM
Dear Residents and Businesses,
The HBO series “Treme” will be returning to your neighborhood for filming at 2725 DeSoto Street
Friday, March 18, 2011 – this Friday. Please excuse us as we will be moving working trucks and crew into your neighborhood Friday afternoon around 1 PM. While the filming is going on, please ask anyone with a radio to contact Locations if you have any questions or concerns.
Please be sure to observe the “NO PARKING” signs on your block. We have kept our production vehicles to as small a footprint as we are able. If a vehicle is left in our round-up that we need to move, we will tow it to a nearby street and NOPD will have a record of where it is, just ask for Locations. Should you have any deliveries, events or appointments that we should be aware of, please do not hesitate to call us.
As always, we are working with Katie Gunnell, of the Mayor’s Office of Film and Video, who may be reached at 504-658-0923 or by cell at 504-329-0665 to verify our credentials. We are also working with the New Orleans Police Department and Traffic Engineering to monitor safety for you and our crew.
Please be aware that we will have NOPD officers with us to monitor Intermittent Traffic Control for a short period of time while we film a quick exterior sequence at the following intersection:
• Desoto Street @ Crete Street
Parking will be reserved in the area for our working trucks and “picture” only, and we will therefore be posting
City Permitted “No Parking” signs in those areas. The parking reserve will be posted for the hours between
1:00 PM – 11:00 PM in the following blocks:
• 2600 DeSoto Street (uptown)
• 2700 DeSoto Street (downtown)
• 2700 Esplanade Avenue (downtown)
• 1400 Crete Street (½ lakeside @ Lepage Street)
• 1400 Crete Street (½ riverside @ Esplanade Avenue)
• 2700 LePage Street (uptown)
Thank you for your patience and support of filmmaking in and around New Orleans.
