Drac Studios Louisiana Announces Its First Project

Drac Studios Louisiana Announces Its First ProjectOscar-winning special effects and makeup house Drac Studios has opened up a production arm, Drac Studios Louisiana, and announced its first live-action feature, Dead in the Water. For the time being Drac is leasing space in Baton Rouge’s Raleigh Studios Celtic Media Center.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Dead in the Water was written by Si Dunn and will be directed by Rob Walker with production being headed up by Drac president Harvey Lowry.

No plot details were made available, but taking into account Drac’s track record of working on genre projects and the film’s title, we figured it was safe to assume horror will be involved in one form or another. As for why they selected this location, Lowry said, “With all of the indie and studio films being shot in Louisiana, it was an easy decision to open a facility in the state. Now we can offer other producers the Louisiana tax incentives for our special effects and makeup effects as well as take advantage of them ourselves for our own productions.

As more details are revealed for Dead in the Water, we’ll pass them on.
