A Brief History of the Louisiana Wave Studio

June 2006, Dr. Ken Atchity and Fred Griffin Purchase the Wave Tank and Create the Louisiana Wave Studio

The wave tank in Shreveport was created by the Aquatic Development Group of Cohoes, New York using their exclusive WaveTek technology, under the supervision of COL. Victor Lent for Walt Disney Pictures' A School Productions to film the motion picture "The Guardian" directed by Andy Davis, produced by Peter MacGregor-Scott, and starring Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher.

After completion of the film, the 750,000-gallon tank was slated for demolition unless a buyer was found. In June 2006 the wave tank's ownership was transferred to the Louisiana Wave Studio, LLC, co-managed by Louisiana-born Dr. Ken Atchity, chairman of Los Angeles-based Atchity Entertainment International, Inc., with co-manager Fred Griffin of Houston's Griffin Partners, Inc. Find out more about why you should consider filming your next production in the Shreveport-Bossier City area at the Louisiana Wave Studio.
