WHAT WE DO:
NOLAFugees Press|Productions LLC is an independent digital media and content development group based in New Orleans. We are dedicated to providing engaging digital content and creative commercial projects for a perse group of writers, performers, and media production professionals.
In addition to developing our own projects, NFP provides audio, photo, and video capture, editing and post-production, event design and management, web platforming, and digital storytelling services to the business, cultural, and non-profit communities.
WHY WE DO IT:
We produce content because we believe the subjects we cover deserve attention; we partner with companies, organizations, and inpiduals to develop events, programming, and new media that encourages people to think and to experience, not just to respond.
NOLAFugees Press|Productions began publishing content in November, 2005 as a response to what we considered the gross inaccuracies of local, national, and international media coverage in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. From 2005-2010 our website, NOLAFugees.com, mixed investigative journalism, first-person reportage, political analysis, and vicious satire to develop an alternate chronicle of Reconstruction New Orleans–with its uneasy race relations, its shadowy visionaries, its struggling citizens– as a city of profound uncertainty.
Over five years, we published over one hundred writers and collected the content from NOLAFugees.com in two non-fiction anthologies (Year Zero, 2006 and Soul is Bulletproof, 2008) and published the first collection of post-Katrina short fiction, Life in the Wake (2007). Since, we’ve published novels by two of our authors: Sarah Inman’s The Least Resistance (2010) and Andrea Boll’s The Parade Goes on Without You (2009). Please see Our Booksfor more information.
We began pursuing our interest in film and digital media content in 2010 by developing and producing The People Say Project, a series of talk shows focused on the cultural economy featuring cross-generational artists, dancers, and musicians discussing their experiences making a living in New Orleans. Co-sponsored by the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities and Loyola University of New Orleans College of Humanities, the program featured a year-long curriculum based on research methods, digital storytelling, and content authoring skills.
Since then, we’ve expanded our production services to provide audio, photo, and video capture, editing and post-production, event design and management, web platforming, and digital storytelling services to the business, cultural, and non-profit communities.

Interviews from the 2015 Tennessee Williams Fest
The Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival is one of the Crescent City’s greatest cultural events, bringing national and international figures in publishing, theater, and academia together in the French Quarter. This year we worked to capture as much of the content as we could, but we still only got a small piece of the action.
Among this year’s highlights, spending twenty minutes with John Waters (Desperate Living, Carsick), recording Darrel Bourque and Goldman Thibodeaux as they performed from “An Amédé Ardoin Songbook,” and the annual Stella! shouting contest.
Louisiana Restaurant Association ProStart Competition
The Louisiana Restaurant Association Education Foundation’s ProStart Student Invitational competition brings many of the state’s top high school culinary programs to New Orleans to engage in a two day event that tests students’ kitchen and presentation skills. NFP was pleased to produce the following sizzle reel highlighting this important educational and culinary event. LRA.PROSTART.2015 from NOLAFugees Press|Productions on Vimeo.
New Work at the Arthur Roger Gallery
Arthur Roger Gallery is one of our favorite clients, not only because we are students of art, but also because everyone there (artists, staff, and Arthur) are all fantastic to work with. NFP is finishing up work on a series of artist walkthroughs and interviews, featuring Dawn Dedaux, Courtney Egan, David Bates, and Erwin Redl. […]
NFP and the Halloween Party Expo
The Halloween and Party Expo is the largest North American trade show focused on costumes, party supplies, and paper goods. 2015 marks the first year of the HPE’s residence in New Orleans, and NFP partnered with the Liz Irving Group and Urban Expositions to create a package that documented the inaugural event. More content is […]
Kelcy Mae’s “The Fire” Nominated for OffBeat Award
When Singer-Songwriter Kelcy Mae asked NFP to finish up her video for “The Fire,” we jumped at the chance. Kelcy was nominated for Best Video at the 2015 Best of the Beat Awards and when she gave us tickets, we jumped at the chance to eat from the amazing spread at OffBeat’s annual shindig, January […]
In the 16th year of the Experienced Ritual Voodoo Music Festival, The Foo Fighters have the coveted closing spot on the last day, which is reserved for the oldest band. Middle-aged people love music festivals because they don’t know that you can smoke weed outside pretty much everywhere now. Last year Nine Inch Nails and other well known bands were here to help promote recovery and joined with CleanItSupply who donated everything from paper plates to toilet tissue rolls at a time when paper products were in short supply due to the storms. They also provided cleaning products to keep the portable toilets clean and useable during the crush of crowds seeking everything from shelter to good views of the festivities.
Racist Costumes: Voodoo 2014
Voodoo goes down over Halloween weekend, and this year we celebrate the new, young progressives that are creating/supporting a new New Orleans with a feature gallery of racist costuming. Either the future is the past or a shitload of people from Northern Virginia come to Voodoo, because a lot of these people are dressed like Native Americans, […]
The Melvins: Voodoo 2014
When veterans of the trade The Melvins took the Carnival stage Friday at 8:30, the vortex they created sucked all the low end right out of the EDM shitshow of Le Plur and kicked dubstep in the balls. Photos by Sergio Andres Lobo-Navia. The Voodoo Music Experience inspires the wedding of art and corporate commerce. […]
Kind words from partners and clients.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with NOLA Fugees on several events & would highly recommend them. The staff has always been professional & reliable, as well as open to exploring alternative creative resources. From books to blogs, intimate lectures to large scale festivals, I find their services to cover a wide range of media.
“The People Say Project, which created a dialogue regarding culture & money, personally stands out as one of the most interesting & enjoyable events I’ve done with the NOLA Fugees. Taking a controversial issue and presenting it in a format that encourages open discussion between a wide range of age & incomes was not an easy task but one that they did with effortless grace. There was much consideration brought for opposing sides of the topic but each one was represented in a fair & respectful manner. In this project NOLA Fugees created a harmony between education, art, history, & culture.”
Trixie Minx, Director
Fleur de Tease Burlesque
“Through their technical abilities NOLAFugees Press/Productions has helped the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival create effective and engaging highlight clips and outreach materials for marketing. Additionally, they have helped to curate innovative events for our Festival helping us to reach new audiences. We’ve found their services to be thorough, timely, professional, and that they go beyond what is required for the finished product—a pleasure to work with.”
