BATON ROUGE, La (FOX44) – A new company wants to show Louisiana musicians the money by brining original, Louisiana-made music to the silver screen.

Massive film projects have made their way to the Bayou State, making us third in the nation when it comes to dollars spent on production. However, when the camera stops rolling, so does the work. Now, Cutting Edge Group wants to change that by brining post-production to Cajun Country.

From "Flypaper" to "Dragon Eyes" (both filmed recently in Baton Rouge), Cutting Edge Group has had a hand in over two hundred movies filmed within the past two years. Most of which were filmed right here. Cutting Edge has had so much work here lately that they’re opening a new office right here in Baton Rouge.

The company is currently completely work on the score for "Never Back Down 2," which wrapped here in the Capitol City back in October. Now they’re in need of about 20 tracks to fill open spots on the film, and they want to use local musicians to get the work done.

"We're looking for original music and if you are an original band, this is an opportunity,” Jeremy Pleasant of Cutting Edge Group, explained. “It's an opportunity to get your music not only in movies being done now, but in movies that are going to be done in the future."

Pleasant says he’s looking for high energy rock music on this project, but that they’re accepting inquires from all types of genres, too.
