NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) - You’re looking at the world’s first 100% off-the-grid, Eco-friendly, technologically advanced, luxurious talent trailer…the “Ecoluxe”.
The “Ecoluxe is part of the Hollywood Trucks fleet of trailers. The “Ecoluxe” is home away from home for Hollywood South’s biggest stars.
“If you name a star, anyone in the Entertainment industry, there’s a good chance they’ve been in one of our trailers,” Hollywood Trucks Developer, Andre Champagne, said.
Champagne said the “Ecoluxe” is 43-feet long and costs about $150,000.
Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Chris Rock, Sandra Bullock, and Bruno Mars are just a few of the stars who have recently stayed in these trailers.
The “Ecoluxe” talent trailer will be used on the sets for “American Horror Story, “Terminator 5: Genesis” and the new “Fantastic Four” .
“The “Ecoluxe” is a star in it’s own right. It’s taking environmental friendliness and luxury to new heights.
“There’s no toxic paint used in this entire unit. All of the lights are LED,” he said.
In the past, talent trailers ran entirely on generators, but not the solar and thermal powered “Ecoluxe”. A generator is only necessary for an hour maximum, in order for the truck to recharge.
‘The change is dramatic in terms of energy consumption,” Champagne said.
These trailers are full of amenities for their rich and famous clientele.
“DirecTV, Apple Extreme, high speed internet, and the TV serves as an I-mac computer,” he said.
Champagne knows celebrities need a comfortable place to stay while they are filming movies and TV shows.
“All you really want at the end of the day is for someone to enjoy it, like it, and say this is amazing.”
Hollywood Trucks operate in both Louisiana and Georgia.
Hollywood Trucks was developed in Louisiana back in 2007. Champagne is a Louisiana native.
Plans are in the works to expand to Los Angeles, Texas and London.
