In light of a Brazilian TV show secretly entering and filming the Isle Emse house in Paraty, it’s good to hear that the folks in Baton Rouge have tough security measures in place once Breaking Dawn filming begins in Louisiana.
In the weeks leading up to Twilight‘s arrival, Raleigh Studios has been steadily implementing new security measures, including vehicle identification requirements and unique photo badges that authorized personnel must display at all times. But, by far, the most significant change is a 600% increase in the size of the studios own security force.
“We have increased our number of full-time security personnel from six to twenty-four in the last week,” says [Chief of Security Winston] Achee. “That’s just the beginning of the ramp-up. We’ll be adding two to four more every week.” Rather than hire harmless security guards, these new additions are mostly veterans of Louisiana police forces and sheriff’s departments.
In addition to the direct hires, another twenty man force has been added as well. “So, we’ll have on property at all times a forty-eight man force. We are not taking security on this property lightly,” Achee says.
