In 2005, when Hurricane Katrina struck, it wiped out the existing visitor center at Chalmette Battlefield, part of the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve.
As part of the restoration efforts, Argentine Productions was selected to produce the media for a new visitor center. A three-screen orientation video was created to cover the strategy and days leading up to the pivotal battle. This was then synchronized with a lighting program we created for a tabletop map to show the movement of troops and building of structures. Production took place at the battlefield site, historic homes, and Barataria swamp. CGI was used to remove modern intrusions at the Battlefield site, such as smokestacks, an artificial levee, and the visitor site construction site. argentineproductions.com
