NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – We see them all over the city, but what do they mean?  

The yellow signs you see posted, sometimes with arrows, have an important role for film productions.

They are posted by the locations department to help production and crew members find their way to a particular set.

The weird letters that make no sense represent code letters or number to keep unwanted visitors knowing the location and name of the project.

You’ll notice that the signs are designed so they can flipped either way – to point left or right. More and more are popping up around town as Hollywood South heats up for a new year of filming.

There are four productions either already filming or set to begin filming soon in New Orleans:

Quail Hollow – Feature Film – Begins: January/February – Crew Email: jamcampermits@gmail.com

Preacher Season 2 – TV Series – Begins January 30 – Crew Email:  s2nolacrewresumes@gmail.com

Underwater – Feature Film – Begins March 6th – Crew Email: underwatermovieoffice@gmail.com

The Haunted – TV Pilot – Begins January 23rd – Crew Email: thehauntedresumes@gmail.com

These signs aren’t just used in Hollywood South. They’re used all over the country. In  Los Angeles, where over 10,000 productions are filmed each year, the signs are so common that people don’t even notice them anymore.
