A launch party for new local film company Sketchy Characters Productions will take place Thursday, February 9 from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. at The Hookah, 309 Decatur Street in New Orleans. The company is the brainchild of local actor and producer Armando Leduc, who currently divides his time between New Orleans and Los Angeles and has appeared in local Hollywood South productions like The Green Lantern and Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans. Sketchy Characters' long-term goal is to make films "from pre-production through post-production right here in Louisiana," Leduc says.
This networking event features a screening of the locally made film Flesh Wounds starring Kevin Sorbo. The $5 cover includes admission to a dance after-party.
