RESERVE — This year, the Port of South Louisiana is celebrating 60 years in operation. Emblematic of its diamond anniversary, the decision was made to update the video package and upgrade it to contemporary video messaging.

The Port of South Louisiana is excited to unveil its new marketing video, “We Are the Port of South Louisiana 2020,” along with supplemental media shorts and motion graphics. The videos highlight facilities of the Port of South Louisiana along with specifications and statistics regarding industrial development within the Port.

The economic development videos, produced by Neon Cloud Productions, who worked closely with the Port’s business development department, will be used to increase awareness, create interest, and promote the Port of South Louisiana during presentations, in digital media publications and on social media. The main marketing video will be presented to guests who tour our port facilities, including government officials, maritime industry representatives and site selectors/potential industrial partners.

“We are excited about our newest video,” said Paul Aucoin, executive director of the Port of South Louisiana. “This video shows the strengths of our Port. We offer many attractive amenities to prospective companies within our district, including intermodality, Port of South Louisiana’s Executive Regional Airport, and the availability of acreage on both sides of the Mississippi River for industrial development. Our new video serves as an invaluable showcase of our Port to clientele state- and worldwide.”

The Port appreciates Neon Cloud Productions for their collaborative effort in displaying its status as a world-class port district into a visual exhibition.

“The translation of our vision would not have been as successful without their guidance and creative contributions,” Aucoin said.

The new video can be viewed on Port of South Louisiana’s website, portsl.com, or on YouTube at https://youtu.be/UtJ3Mletczc. Also be on the lookout for the media shorts and motion graphics on the Port’s social media: Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
