Btw, Shreveport Blog author Robert Trudeau and partner, Talbot Hopkins Trudeau, are ambassadors for a charming, poetic 11-minute movie called Honey and the Hive. It was made by New Orleans filmmaker Austin Alward, a fellow who fell in love with Shreveport when he worked on the Hank Williams bio, I Saw the Light.
Honey and the Hive is about an adopted girl who worries about her fate as her family awaits the arrival of a birth child. She resembles the queen bee who seeks a new home and worries whether the new hive will accept her.
