Ascension Parish is centrally located in the state, right off of I-10 between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. It is unique in that it extends on both sides of the Mississippi River to include Donaldsonville. Ascension is made up of two cities and one town: The City of Gonzales, The City of Donaldsonville, and the Town of Sorrento. There are also 39 unincorporated communities and two census designated areas.
Ascension Parish is a true American treasure. It is the ‘Gateway’ to a glorious and sublime portrait of time and people spanning more than five centuries. The scenic beauty of the area provides an exciting backdrop for any production, and our mild climate allows for year-round shooting.
