About the Movie

Local Color is a 2006 award winning American Drama film. Directed by George Gallo, starring Armin Mueller-Stahl, Ray Liotta and Trevor Morgan in the lead role. It is based on a true story, that of the director/writer’s experience when he was 18. Gallo also painted all of the oil paintings in this movie, having “cleaned out his whole garage” of his paintings. The paintings that John (Trevor Morgan) showed to Seroff (Armin Mueller-Stahl) when asking him for advice in the beginning of the movie, were the exact paintings he showed to the person upon whom the Seroff character was based.

Although the film was based in New York and Pennsylvania, the film was actually shot in various locations in Louisiana in and around New Orleans, Covington and Baton Rouge. Production began in July 2005 but was delayed because of the events of Hurricane Katrina.
