(Art by Eric T. Styles) Filming is scheduled Saturday at Exchange Place in the French Quarter and parking restrictions will be in effect.
The filming is scheduled to occur at Exchange Place, between Conti and Bienville streets, from approximately 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., according to Lisa Latter, a film location manager.
Parking restrictions will be in place along the downtown side of the 600 block of Bienville Street from 12:59 a.m. to 3 p.m. No parking signs will be posted along the block. All residents and business owners will have access to their properties, according to Latter.
New Orleans Police officers will be conducting intermittent traffic control at the intersection of Conti and Royal streets from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., while avoiding rush hours. Traffic will be held for a few minutes when filming occurs and will resume when the filming ends, according to Latter.
Parking and traffic will be impacted along portions of French Quarter streets, including near Jackson Square, as crews are scheduled to begin filming scenes for a Netflix movie on May 3.
Crews will film scenes for “Tall Girl 2” in several portions of the French Quarter, including along Royal and St. Louis streets, and St. Ann and Decatur streets near Jackson Square.
Parking will be impacted along the Marigny side of the 600 and 700 blocks of St. Louis Street, where crew trucks will be located from 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m.; and from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. along the lake side of the 400 Royal Street, where filming will occur.
Additionally, between 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m., parking will be affected along the Central Business District side of the 600 and 700 blocks of St. Ann Street, where crew trucks will be located; and along the lake side of the 500 block of Decatur Street, where cameras will be located.
New Orleans Police will provide officers to assist with the production near the filming locations, including with security and intermittent traffic controls at the intersection of Royal and St. Louis streets between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., with traffic fully resuming after 6 p.m.
Film crews and base camp will be situated in private lots to minimize impacts to the area, according to Film New Orleans spokeswoman Carroll Morton.
In addition, Netflix will implement COVID-19 safety protocols during the production, including testing all cast and crew members for the virus at least once each week, frequent cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces and no catering allowed on locations, among other guidelines.
Anyone with specific parking concerns in the area during filming, including for deliveries or construction, is asked to contact assistant location manager Ellie Ginsburg at 240-439-0691 and email@example.com; Carroll Morton with Film New Orleans at 504-658-4341, or 504-240-9504, and firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 500 blocks of Chartres and Decatur streets will be affected between midnight and 11:59 p.m., although crews will arrive on location and will film between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., according to CBS Studios, which is currently producing episodes for the series that’s in its seventh and, most likely, final season.
During filming, parking along the lakeside portion of the 500 block of Decatur Street and the riverside portion of the 500 block of Chartres Street will be impacted.
Crew member parking and base camp will be located in private lots to minimize the impact in the area, and all driveways and handicap zones will be respected, according to CBS Studios, which will also have New Orleans Police and security details on site.
“We realize that you may have had a great deal of filming in the past and that it can sometimes be a nuisance,” according to CBS Studios. “We work closely with Film New Orleans to help ensure that we adhere to the standards they have set forth.”
Anyone with questions regarding planned deliveries, construction and with concerns regarding parking or the filming may contact CBS Studios site location managers, including:
